Playstation 3/PSP Owners Get Video-On-Demand
Just days after Microsoft announced Netflix would be coming to the Xbox 360, Sony has announced a new video service for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable that has already kicked off with 300 full-length movie titles and 1200 TV shows. That's just a start-Sony claims that they have signed seven movie studios to the service including Disney, Fox, MGM, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Lions Gate. Both HD and SD movie rentals will be available priced between $2.99 and $5.99 and TV shows will set you back $1.99 per episode, and you'll be able to purchase standard-def movies with the exception of those from Disney.
Renters will have a full 14 days to press play on their rentals though once the play button is pushed, you'll only have 24 hours to watch the entire movie. You'll also be able to share content with other PS3 or PSP users thanks to Sony's use of Marlin DRM technology.
