Sony Qriocity Movie Service


Last week, we heard that Sony would be expanding their online service to devices other than their gaming consoles. More details are trickling out: there is a YouTube demo of a Sony movie-on-demand service named Qriocity running on a Bravia TV set. (source)

  • Apparently, this will be better suited for streaming than the existing PlayStation movie service. It will adjust content quality based on your network connection quality.
  • The demo seems to be running directly on the software embedded inside a Sony Bravia TV. Will this work on PS3/PSP? How about PCs? How about other non-Sony appliances such as Roku-type boxes, blu-ray players, non-Sony smart HDTVs, or smart phones?
  • Will this be a-la-carte (pay for each individual movie or show) service or will there be a buffet style subscription service (like Netflix offers)?

There are already plenty of video on demand services, and more competition can only lead to better choices for the consumers.

    This is cool. I want Sony to do a pay per month deal where im paying 15 bucks a month and I can streat any movie or whatever. I can’t keep them but I can stream them. I would totally pay for that and get ride of my netflix account. Then movies that I want to buy Ill get on Blu-ray.

    Thanks for the Qriocity review. I am a Sony fan from way back, somehow they stay one step ahead of everybody else
