A new HP MovieStore application for HP’s TouchPad streams on-demand movies and TV shows via Rovi’s RoxioNow platform. HP’s first webOS tablet adds to a range of HP notebooks and desktop PCs that are already powered by the RoxioNow entertainment platform. Under the terms of a new licensing agreement, Rovi is providing content licensing and infrastructure services that include a cloud-based movie and TV locker.

In other Rovi news, the company announced a new multi-year agreement for its RoxioNow platform to power the Canadian availability of CinemaNow. The digital entertainment service, expected to launch in September through Best Buy Canada and Future Shop, will be available initially online and then expand to offer access through a range of Internet-connected consumer electronics devices. CinemaNow will allow Canadian consumers to stream a catalog of premium entertainment including new movie releases and next-day TV shows. The RoxioNow platform currently powers the CinemaNow service for Best Buy in the U.S.
