PostSubject: Sony's internet TV service will carry Comedy Central, MTV, and other Viacom networks   Wed Sep 10, 2014 12:49 pm


Sony and DirecTV are each planning to offer internet-based TV in the coming months in separate attempts to lure in millennials and cord cutters. And while the exact details around how the streaming services will work (and their cost) aren't yet known, we're starting to hear more about the content that'll be on offer. Sony and Viacom today announced a deal that will bring nearly two dozen Viacom networks to Sony's upcoming cloud service.


There are some big ones on the list, like Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, BET, CMT, Nickelodeon, and various offshoots of those channels. The "landmark" agreement covers both live and on-demand programming, and will also give Sony's customers access to Viacom's TV Everywhere apps on smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Sony says all of Viacom's content will stream in HD — whenever its internet-based TV product actually launches. All Sony will say is that more specifics will be announced "in the near future."

At CES earlier this year, the company outlined plans to make its TV service compatible with over 70 million Sony devices, spread across a mix of game consoles, televisions, Android hardware, and so on. The cloud will play a major role in Sony's plan; it's where your DVR recordings will be stored, and Sony also plans to offer a comprehensive search that pulls in results from both live channels and on-demand shows and movies. Licensing is seen as a major hurdle in piecing together a compelling internet TV offering; Intel, for instance, just couldn't make it happen. But Sony might have the sway necessary to see its vision through.

That's interesting... but I'm not really interested in any of the channels mentioned.

I wonder what the cost will be ?
