Sony Internet TV Service Coming to the US This Year

September 20, 2014Written by Zarmena Khan


Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House has announced that the company plans to launch an internet TV service in the US by the end of 2014. Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, House disclosed that Sony has already struck a deal with Viacom that will see more than 20 of its channels added to the service, including MTV and Nickelodeon. 

House also mentioned that Sony wants to expand its streaming services. At the moment, the PlayStation Now service is available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, with a rollout scheduled later this year on the PlayStation TV, PlayStation Vita, and Bravia TVs. Sony is also eyeing smartphones and tablets for video game streaming. House said:

A streaming-based approach needs to have a very wide funnel of devices, and that inherently means a broad and manufacturer-agnostic approach.

Interestingly, Sony also wants to offer steaming services on non-Sony devices.
