Nokia's digital download service Ovi Store could soon become a place to watch full movies, the Finnish firm has announced.

Nokia's Kasey Farrar spoke about the new service in an interview with Electric Pig relating to the Skype app, which has also just arrived on the Ovi Store for Nokia smartphone users to enjoy.

Mr Farrar said: "We are investigating it. We have done a couple of pilots in some countries with some success and you know we have great relationships with all the major studios."

One limitation to the movie download service that Mr Farrar highlighted was the lack of adequate bandwidth when using a 3G connection.

He added: "Longer form videos put a tremendous amount of stress on the network."

This suggests that Wi-Fi could be the perfect solution for ensuring that the service makes it out of the development stage.
