索尼与维亚康姆敲定合作发展在线电视业务

2018-09-15 10:05:17

新华网8月16日电据科技博客网站Gizmodo报道,索尼已经与美国第三大传媒公司维亚康姆集团达成合作协议,为其提供内容服务。

正当每个人都在给电视憧憬和创造一个流媒体的未来时,与内容供应商之间的协定却怎么都敲定不下来。据《华尔街日报(博客,微博)》报道,索尼已经跳出了那片泥沼,与电视巨头维亚康姆达成了一项合作协议。

签署这一协议之后,传得沸沸扬扬的索尼网络电视业务为维亚康姆提供内容(其中包括MTV音乐电视台、热门录像有线频道VH1、尼克国际儿童频道Nickeldeon、喜剧中心有线电视台等),还能为维亚康姆带来庞大的电视及电影库。《华尔街日报》称,虽然索尼还需与维亚康姆在一些细节上进行敲定,但是一旦落实了合作协议,索尼很有可能掌握电视界竞争的一张。索尼也正在努力和迪士尼、时代华纳以及哥伦比亚广播公司洽谈合作,但是与维亚康姆的合作相比,后面几个的洽谈条件要昂贵得多。

索尼的流媒体电视服务若取得成功,势必会带动PS4的发展。微软毫不示弱,已经推出了自己的流媒体电视服务Xbox One,这说明索尼对流媒体电视也是相当认真的。

说来说去,时机是关键。有线电视公司对于内容控制非常严,为此,索尼曾不得不延迟其流媒体电视服务。英特尔、谷歌还有苹果公司都在虎视眈眈,努力推出自己的流媒体电视服务。但是,索尼与维亚康姆达成合作协议意义重大。鼓舞人心的是,《华尔街日报》称,索尼将于今年年底推出流媒体电视服务,所以未来电视并不是我们想的那么遥远。

Everyone and their dog is trying to create some kind of streaming future for TV, but deals with content providers have proven incredibly difficult to nail down. But the Wall Street Journal reports that Sony has apparently cleared that hurdle, striking an agreement with TV giant Viacom.

The deal would let Sony"s rumored internet TV service offer Viacom content (MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, etc.) in addition to its own massive library of television series and films. WSJ reports that there are still a few details to iron out with Viacom, but once the ink is dry, Sony might have something really awesome on its hands. Apparently it"s also in talks with Disney, Time Warner, and CBS for an even more expansive offering.

A successful Sony streaming TV service would also bolster PS4 in the living room. Microsoft has obviously been making a similar push with the Xbox One, but this makes it very clear that Sony is very serious about the exact same space.

But the timing here is key. Sony has already had to stall the service once because cable companies have such tight control over content. And Intel, Google, and Apple are also hard at work on their own competing services. Still, it"s the first major breakthrough we"ve seen with a content provider that matters. Most encouraging of all? The WSJ says Sony aims to launch by the end of the year, which means the future of TV might not be as far away as we thought. [WSJ]
