Sony Video On-Demand went live around 8:00 pm GMT July 15, 2008Posted by Admin in Playstation Network.
Sony has revealed that its movie download service will boast content from Fox Film, MGM, Lionsgate, Warner Bros., Disney, Paramount, Turner and Funimation on day one.
Eric Lempel also mentioned : That yes you can take the content with you via the PSP you can either utilize the Playstation 3 via XMB select copy to PSP. Or by accessing the Playstation Store later this month you will be able copy the content to the PSP.
Movie rentals are priced from $2.99 to $5.99, and they’re good for 14 days (once you start playing back a movie, you have 24 hours to finish it, again, like the Apple Store). Purchasing movies costs from $9.99 to $14.99.
Marlin Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology is being used to protect the content, but it allows videos to be shared on multiple activated devices (depending on the type of content). And users can transfer videos from their PS3 to a PSP handheld console, so you can watch videos on the run.
The PS3 can already view videos on a host PC, Mac or network appliance on the same network employing Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) support—Nullriver Software makes a Mac OS X application called MediaLink to help facilitate this. But this gives PS3 users another way to watch premium video content without having to rip DVDs or to download video illicitly from the Internet.
