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.
