Sony had reached a preliminary deal with Viacom to offer Viacom’s channels in a new internet TV service developed by Sony. This service could be available in the end of this year. The agreement would allow offering channels like Comedy Central, MTV, BET, CMT, VH1, Nickelodeon and Spike through internet.
There’s more, Sony could be in talks with Disney, Time Warner and CBS Corporation (among other providers) to incorporate their channels in the Sony’s service. The company could offer channels commonly available through cable or satellite TV in a new internet TV service provided by Sony.
This service would be directly interwoven with PS4 and Bravia. It’s a way to integrate one machine with too many services in your houses, a set top box able to do a lot of tasks including games, TV and internet.
Thanks, The Verge.
