Sony has created a new TV service that’s being made available to purchasers of its latest televisions.
Bravia Core has been created with Sony Pictures Entertainment and is being pre-installed on the latest Bravia XR TVs. The new line features Sony’s Pure Stream technology, achieving near lossless UHD BD equivalent quality with streaming up to 80 Mbps.
Keith Le Goy, President, Worldwide Distribution and Networks, Sony Pictures Television said “We bring together the best filmmakers and the best actors and deliver the resultant feature films to consumers through the brilliance of Sony technology and the brilliance of our televisions.”
At the mid to high range of the market Sony, Samsung and LG are also looking to own the content that appears on their displays.
“For about four years now we’ve been working to really think how we re-imagine the at-home experience and how we deliver great, immersive technology that you typically see in the cinema,” said Pete Wood, SVP, New Media Distribution, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Bravia XR TV owners who sign up for BRAVIA CORE can redeem movies from a selection of 300 titles including Venom, Peter Rabbit, Ghostbusters, Blade Runner 2049 and Jumanji: The Next Level using Bravia CORE credits. The number of credits varies according to the model purchased.
There are 10 movie credits included with the A90J and Z9J televisions and 5 with the rest of the BRAVIA XR models.
