Sony to stream movies to PSPs

Sony is planning to launch movie download service for PSP owners. Sony has been selling movies on UMD discs for quite sometime now, which has failed to catchup with the consumers. Netflix one of the biggest movie rental service doesn’t carry/plan to carry movies on UMDs, and same is the case with others.

So instead of letting Apple and Microsoft take the lead in the movie downloads to portable device markets, Sony will being streaming movies right to the PSPs. I wonder why it took so long for Sony to realize the strength of its own WiFi enabled device that has superior colors and bigger screen compared to video iPod. However the limited capacity(4GB) of MemoryStick that can be used in PSPs can affect the uptake of the service.

There is no news about pricing and how the movies will be made available in terms of Sony trying to setup its own web site and service or ponying upon Amazon UnBox or MovieLink to make the movies available for download.
