Modern cult classic ‘The Shawshank Redemption‘, which stars Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins, is to become the first full-length movie to be available for download by mobile phone after a deal between Nokia, Granada Ventures and Rok Player, reports Revolution Magazine via Mike Masnick over at TechDirt Wireless.

The film will cost Nokia phone holders £16.99 ($32.45) and is available to buy from mobile phone stores and online via RockPlayer.com.

Paul Holland, director of publishing at Granada Ventures, said: “Soon people will be able to access their favourite shows, sports and films on demand and on the move wherever they may be.

In addition, Rok Entertainment has signed a licensing deal with Sony/BMG Music to allow music to be downloaded and is currently in negotiations with film studios and TV firms to secure more content.”
