Today Samsung launched a new movie download site for Samsung devices. The site will first be available on the Tocco Ultra Edition in the U.K., followed by other models in other European countries. No immediate plans to bring the store to the U.S. were announced. At launch, the site has over 10,000 movies and TV shows available to buy or rent. Users will get both a PC version of the movie and a version optimized for their Samsung phone. Samsung said PC-version downloads will take about 25 minutes, while phone-version downloads will take 5-10 minutes to download to a PC first, and then several more minutes to transfer to the phone. Over-the-air downloads aren't available. Any PC can play the movies, but only Samsung phones will be supported. Download prices are in line with Samsung's competitors. Apple provides movie downloads to the iPhone, and Nokia has expanded into the content business, as well. Recently, Sony Ericsson announced a movie download store of its own.
