Sony to launch online content distribution service in 2010

Service to deliver films, music and other content to connected Sony devices

Sony has confirmed that the planned content distribution service for its network-connected devices will be launched next year.

The online service is expected to offer films, music, books and other content to its range of network-capable TVs, Blu-ray players, ebooks and other devices in a bid to add value to its products, reports Reuters.

Additionally, Sony executive VP Kazuo Hirai told reporters in Japan he is confident sales of the PlayStation 3 will hit the company's official target of 13 million units in the fiscal year ending March 2010.

Sony has recently said that it hopes to return its PlayStation business to profitability for the fiscal year ending March 2011.
