Nokia might be getting into the movie biz

Linux not going away, U.K.

Though they’re completely open about the fact that their source is a bit peculiar, BGR is reporting that that Nokia may be looking to start up a movie download service.

Rather than a pay-per-view or rental service, the new service is tentatively all-you-can-eat. One lump sum per month garners you unlimited access to a catalog of 320 x 240 H.264 movies, streamed straight to your handset. Love the movie so much you want to put it on your shelves? With just a click or two, a physical copy will be on the way to your mailbox.

While the idea sounds grand, does the world really need yet another movie download service? With every new service comes another catalog limited by licensing issues, and another DRM implementation to help negate them. Why not just jump on the Netflix partnership party bus?
