LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sony Pictures Television says it will become
the first Hollywood studio to offer full-length movies by
cellphone.
The unit of Japanese electronics maker Sony Corp. says it will
offer a range of popular titles on special AT&T Inc. phones in May.
The movies, such as "Bugsy," "Ghostbusters" and "Karate
Kid," will be among those that have made their theatrical and DVD
runs and have been broadcast on TV already.
The titles will be streamed with advertisements in a loop and
not be available on demand.
San Antonio-based AT&T says it has not yet determined a price on
the new subscriber package. Those who wish to obtain the service
can only do so on new LG Vu and Samsung Access phones.
