Sony is Close to Viacom Deal for Internet Pay TV Service

Tech giant Sony is reportedly planning to launch an all new internet version of Pay TV. The Japanese firm is working on its unique online Pay TV service that will stream cable channels and on-demand programs over the Internet. Sony is actually starting a new race for all subscription based TV services provided by the cable, satellite and phone operators including Netflix, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft.

For its new pay-TV service, Sony has almost reached a deal with media giant Viacom to stream its channels like Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV and more. WSJ reported that Sony is also in talks with Time Warner Cable, CBS and Disney to stream their content too. 

This online pay TV service will be available initially on Sony's PlayStation gaming consoles and TV sets like Bravia by the start of next year. It will be available on other Sony devices later on. Both Sony and Viacom have refused to comment on it.
