Oh yeah, and NOOK Video is being pushed to NOOK Color and Tablet starting today as well.

I'm quite pleased. Even though it's late and all, imagine my surprise when I noticed Nook Video on my NT! 'Course now, you can't shop directly, but I don't care. I've been waiting two years for this (or however long it has been since I got my NT). I do have a question though: I'm assuming only SD videos can work on NT/NC? I'm not figuring HD at all. But I could be wrong. Also, according to BN.com the file sizes for some movies are quite large. I really am assuming that SD video is the way to go?
I'm going to buy a TV show episode just to test.
I'm very excited and thank you BN for thinking of NT/NC owners!

The Nook Color will support SD only. The Nook Tablet supports HD (a 720p stream) but scales it down to fit the screen resolution. Not true HD, but still a better picture than 480p.

I have an HD+ but your link says my device is not compatible! What's up with that?
You don't need the Nook Video app on a Nook HD as it already supports the content. The Nook App for books is also incompatible for the same reason.

Anybody else having issues with the iOS App? I have a 32GB 4th Gen iTouch, and last night the majority of my movies disappeared. I've been left with naught but Amazing Spider-man, A Knight's Tale and Lady and the Tramp. Oddly enough it says my UV Account isn't linked, but allows me to access the first two of those three. Also lost access to Balls of Fury and Hairspray, both bought direct from B&N.

Okey dokes, two things…
1. I added Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter to my UV Collection tonight, and though my HD+ seemed oblivious to its existence (still hasn't noticed despite repeated refreshes, unlinking and relinking UV, etc), my iTouch added it to my three other movies.
2. I deleted the nook video app, and downloaded again. Lost all UV content (bye Abe), but got back Balls of Fury and Hairspray.

The older HD's which were released last November don't seem to have any videos show up except those purchased directly on the HD from B&N. We have 4 HD/HD+'s linked to our UV account, and only the most recently purchased HD and HD+, consistently show all movies purchased via B&N, VUDU and Flixster. On my older HD,even B&N movies purchased via one of the other HD's don't even show most of the time.
Current tally on the HD & HD+ purchased this summer - 455. ON my HD purchased last November-126. On my Hubby's HD+ purchased last November - 187. I figure I would probly need to do a deregister to get all of the movies to show.
I also can't get my movies to cnsistently show on the website. There are still a lot of glitches with the video process. Fortunately, they are almost all visible via VUDU or Flixster(except Secretariat).

There are definitely issues with UV synching. I had the same problem on my "original" registered NOOK HD+, but after doing an Erase and Deregister a few months ago they've been showing up consistantly.

I just tried erasing and deregistering, now all video content is missing in action, UV and Nook Video included. I think I need to lay down over here... with my face in my pillow, so you guys can't see my tears.

Tried it again, now my Nook Videos are back, but UV content refuses to register to my library.

Have you tried Flixster to play the additional UV files your not seeing?.. UV is a bit testy and not overly centralized..some films will not appear in BNs player and others will. Try installing Flixster and syncing it with UV...
Flixster is also avalible for IOS (as well as most the LCD based nooks, not sure about the Nook Color though)... (which seems to be the platform your having issues with)

I feel your pain. I'm just glad I only have issues with one of my HD's. Your problems are why I'm hesitant to retry unlinking my UV account, especially as I'm sharing the UV acount with my hubby. His HD is registered to a separate B&N accou nt. It ' s also one reason, aside from the sheer work involved in reshelving and setting up accounts, why I'm reluctant to try reregistering.
Anyway, I'm gifting my oldest hd with the video synching issue to my sister this weekend. She won't know any better and can watch the videos via VUDU.

Just wanted to add that the Nook Video app on Roku lists and plays UV videos. I currently only have two, but they play flawlessly on my HDTV. (I don't want to alert MyBowelMovement , but the "key art" doesn't show up. Could be specific to my set up, though, and I don't care, as long as the movie plays.) The point being, you don't have to connect your HD/HD+ to an HDMI port to stream your Nook videos. Now if I could only figure out how to stream that video I bought from Google Play!! Any ideas?
