Just a day after announcing the video game streaming and rental service PlayStation Now, Sony has unveiled a new TV service that should be available for the PS4 sometime this year, according to a report today from VG 24/7.

First reported by Computer and Video Games, Sony revealed the cloud-base streaming service at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

The yet-to-be-named service would allow PS4 owners to watch live television programming through the next-gen console while simultaneously offering films and other TV programming for sale.

The reveal comes just a few days after Dish Network unveiled an application for the PS4 that would essentially act like a TV-set box for the satellite TV company –– including DVR and live programming.

Sony said that its new TV service would also have DVR capabilities and could stream live TV not only to the PS4, but they also to bring it to iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

Sony Corporation CEO and president Kaz Hirai told reporters at CES that the company doesn’t intent to become competitors with cable companies, rather Sony is just offering live TV and “combining it with other video services.”

“We’re trying to resolve one of the biggest hurdles, which is watching live TV and streaming content on different devices,” Hirai said. “Everybody’s been talking about it. I don’t think anyone has been able to do it.”
