Blu-ray movies can be 'side loaded' onto mobile devices

20th Century Fox to launch movies on Android devices

Twentieth Century Fox is set to allow Android smartphone and tablet owners to view the studio’s Blu-ray movies on their mobile devices.

The move will see movies ‘side loaded’ via an Android application in a launch due in the US, UK, Germany and France this October.

The Blu-ray movie to be made available on Android devices is to be "X-Men: First Class"

"Given its strong growth as a mobile operating system, the support for Android is an important move for us because it further enhances Blu-ray discs as the best way to get your movies to all your screens," Fox marketing veep Vincent Marcais told the Financial Times.

It’s not known if Fox will make digital copies of movies for sale separately from Blu-ray discs.
