Today, RIM has made a big announcement concerning Canadians and the BlackBerry PlayBook. They have finally gotten all the licensing deals worked out and the BlackBerry PlayBook Video Store is now available in Canada. The video store offers thousands of movies and TV shoes the are available for purchase or rental right on your BlackBerry PlayBook.
I have had good experience with the PlayBook Video Store, having used it a few times. Being able to play movies on the big screen via HDMI cable and control the PlayBook using BlackBerry Remote from the couch is a big plus. This news is also huge news coming just before BlackBerry 10. The BlackBerry Ecosystem is going to be a huge part of the BlackBerry 10 launch, so having the Video Store available in Canada is one big piece of the puzzle. If you’re in Canada, you can hit the link below to download the Video Store to your PlayBook.
