    Sony in talks for virtual MSO service

    From Variety,

    "The Japanese conglomerate is in active negotiations with at least two major content companies about licensing their channels for a package that could roll out in the U.S. later this year, according to sources."

    I guess Intel is not the only one trying to get small tv channel packages for folks..

    The more options the better for the consumer. On the other hand, I already have more movies and TV shows to watch than I have time for.

    Too true! I certainly agree with the sentiments of some that have "cut the cord" that get by with just OTA and some kind of streaming solution for "premium" offerings (or those that "share" content... ) but I have to admit that the "model" that the major subscription TV providers have adopted, though costly, does work for me and my mostly "junk food" consumption of the semi-crummy programming I often find myself watching. While I am not especially proud of flushing away around $40/wk so that me and the family can see who survives another week of "Project Runway" or "Chopped" but I don't know that it is the worst thing either. From the perspective of the "content provider" would they be able to supply shows like this for a reasonable "per viewing" fee? I doubt it. And please don't suggest that I would be better off watching just movies and series that are mostly "drama" -- that would be like just reading novels all the time. Everybody needs some cookbooks and how-to stuff on their reading shelf...
