Sony to Launch Streaming TV Service in U.S. in 2014
Viacom had in 2013 predicted at least one firm would launch a new streaming TV service in 2014, featuring the same kind of channels that now are only available to cable and satellite TV subscribers, and now Sony has done so.
Sony says it will start an Internet-based TV service in the United States in 2014, offering a mix of live TV programming and video on demand.
Andrew House, group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, says the service will have personalized channels reflecting the viewer's tastes.
Based on the number of homes with Internet-connected Sony devices, he says the service would be among the top five providers of TV programming in the country.
