"It's always been kind of a pain to get movies onto your Windows Phones. You either had to do some special conversion and then copy it over in the File Explorer over USB, or you had to sync it through Windows Media Center and live with the low-quality conversion that gave you. Luckily, the HTC HD2 on T-Mobile USA comes with a Blockbuster application that lets you rent and buy full length high quality movies right from your phone. Not only do they look great on the HD2's screen, but you get to access actual new releases when they're released unlike with Netflix where you have to wait for them to show up."
A few gotchas are mentioned at Pocketnow but other than the prices involved, this looks like a nice way to actually watch great content on a great device. I can see it as a wonderful option while flying, especially when you want to pick your own movie rather than watch what the airlines offer!
