Sony may be set to launch VOD service in February

It's not as catchy as "Netflix" or "iTunes" but that's the company Sony's new "Qriocity" is set to line up against next month. According to reports from the Sony Insider blog, Sony is sticking its toe into into the OTT pool with the play that's expected to show up first on its networked TVs and Blu-ray players. At the moment, there's no indication if the service will be available on the PS3.

At last week Consumer Electronics Show, Sony Insider reported, the new service even warranted a separate button on remotes for Sony's networked TVs. Users will be able to browse the rich-media interface and set up multiple PSN accounts for access to SD and HD content. Sony hasn't released any details of Qriocity, including pricing, availability and a solid release date.
