Barnes & Noble hasn’t given a specific date for when they plan to release Nook Video app and start selling movies and TV shows on the Nook HD, but they have been dropping hints about the content they plan to sell.

Today B&N announced they had signed new deals with  NBC and Fox. These deals will bring a wide selection of movies and TV shows to Nook HD owners, including blockbuster films like Snow White and the Huntsmen, Battleship, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and many more. These deals will also add hit TV shows like The Michael Richards Show, Coupling, Good Morning Miami, and other hit titles from Fox and NBC.

“We’re pleased to offer customers an even wider selection of their favorite movies and TV shows through our new leading studio partners,” said Jonathan Shar, Vice President & General Manager, Emerging Digital Content, NOOK Media. “NOOK Video is one of the most exciting new offerings for customers to enjoy on new NOOK devices when they arrive this month, and with NOOK’s seamless UltraViolet integration, customers can even shop online, from NOOK devices, or physical DVDs and Blu-ray discs in our retail stores and access their digital copies from our safe and secure NOOK Cloud for instant entertainment wherever they go.”

Nook Video is expected to go live later this year.
