Sony Qriocity movie streaming service launched

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

Sony has officially launched its video-on-demand movie service, Qriocity, in the UK and across Europe.

Qriocity uses a pay-per-view model and offers a library of hundreds of films, including blockbusters from the likes of Twentieth Century Fox, Lionsgate, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros, Walt Disney and of course Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

You’ll be able to stream these direct to your net connected Bravia TV or Sony Blu-ray player, although PS3 owners won’t be able to partake (not yet, anyway).

Movies will be available in standard or high definition, and after renting a flick, you’ll have up to two weeks to watch it. Once playback begins, you’ll have 48 hours in which you can view the film as many times as you like.

As for pricing, SD content will start at £2.49 for older films and £3.49 for new releases, and HD movies will be £1 more (so you’re looking at almost a fiver for a new HD release).

  1. It makes me laugh that the obvious Sony product for them to put streaming content onto, something that is usually already connected to the Internet, something that is already capable of streaming content - the PS3 (possibly the most powerful of their home products excluding computers) being excluded shows that Sony really are trying to push people into replacing TVs or BluRay players just to be able to stream movies.

    Maybe they’ll realise that when it falls flat on their face, that something like Netflix on a PS3 is FAR more powerful than trying to push content straight to a device that isn’t meant to receive streaming content…
