TGS 09: Sony to launch video service across Europe by end of 2010

Thursday, 24th September 2009 03:07 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Sony plans to make good on its promise to bring a video service to European PS3 users, and according to Kaz Hirai’s keynote at TGS, it will take place next year.

“We introduced a new video distribution service in the US, 300 movie titles at launch and 1200 episodes of TV drama,” Hirai told attendees. “Today we have more than 13,300 TV dramas and 23,000 movies, and this service is going to be expanded outside the US.

“We are planning on rolling this service out to all of Europe by the end of 2010.”

That’s good to hear. Finally Europe is getting some movies. UK will get it by the end of this year, though.

Hit this for the rest of the keynote’s news.

    Christ you gave me a heart-attack. When u said end of 2010 i thought that was a typo. Glad to see it’s coming out end of the year for UK. Was looking forward to it after it was announced it was coming out Nov 09.

    I reckon it is the right headline.

    Just means for extended Europe.

    Great news. That PS video store is a beast. The anime selection is pretty impressive.

    I can’t wait for this. Yep, they said at Gamescom it’ll hit France, Germany and the UK this year, I think. He’s talking about completing the Euro roll-out there.

    I haven’t really read up too much about this other than when it’s coming out. Will we be getting those “13,300 TV dramas and 23,000 movies” straight off the bat? Or is that only in the US and we are going to get a different batch of films and tv series (which may include some from US store)?
