Comcast announced Monday that it signed an agreement with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) to sell the studio’s titles through the Xfinity On Demand digital store. In the coming weeks, Xfinity TV customers will be able to purchase Sony Pictures movies and TV shows to own and access anytime, anywhere, on any device, often before the DVD release.
Among the first titles available for purchase will be the multi- Academy Award nominated American Hustle which will be available to own digitally on March 11. Additional Sony Pictures movie and TV titles that will be available for purchase in the coming weeks include the critically-acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad, as well as popular movies such as Captain Phillips, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, The Amazing Spiderman, and 21 Jump Street.
Comcast customers have the ability to purchase movies and television shows - often weeks before they are available to rent or purchase on Blu-ray and DVD - and store them seamlessly in the cloud. Their content can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime, on their TV, PC or mobile devices. Purchased titles are added to the customer’s On Demand menu which is easily accessible on the TV, online at XfinityTV.com or via the Xfinity On Demand Purchases app.
The Comcast catalog now includes content from FOX, Lionsgate, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros.
