Sony TV rental service

Sony today launched a for PlayStation Portable (PSP) owners in Japan that is set to compete with Apple's iTunes Music Store, allowing Sony customers to access the company's communication network to download current episodes of TV shows, music videos, trailers, and other video programming by downloading from Sony's website onto a Memory Stick. Video downloads cost between $1-3 each, but are only good for a limited time--between one and two weeks--after which they expire and become unusable, according to a report from ExtremeTech. Sony's lineup contains the "Mobile Suit Gundam films", popular TV anime "Noein", a comedy show featuring the comic group "~giggle~", and "Private Princess: Ayase Haruka." Sony hasn't said whether its service will make a debut in the U.S., according to the report.
