Paramount signs up to Xbox Live Video Store

Microsoft has announced that it has struck a deal with major US movie studio Paramount that will see a number of new films available to download via Xbox Live.

The Xbox Live Video Store, which finally launched in Europe just before Christmas, allows users to download movies that are accessible for a limited time before the license expires.

From tomorrow (February 19th) three new movies will become available – Disturbia, 1408 and recent cinema hit Transformers. The latter title will be available in both SD and HD formats for 250 Microsoft Points and 380 Microsoft Points respectively.

Also of interest, considering recent news, is that this is the first time Transformers will be available in HD for those who don’t own an HD-DVD player.
