HBO Video goes PSP

Titles include 'Ali G,' 'Entourage,' 'Spawn'

LAS VEGAS — HBO Video has become the latest supplier to commit to releasing programming in the PSP format, announcing Tuesday that it will put out six of its programs on the mini-disc platform for Sony’s PlayStation Portable handheld videogame device.

That puts further pressure on Warner Home Video to follow suit. It is one of the only remaining major studios, along with DreamWorks, not to embrace the format. Now the pressure is coming from within, as sister companies New Line and HBO have joined the party. Warner distributes New Line and HBO programming.

HBO’s first PSP titles on Sept. 13 will be “Da Ali G Show: Da Compleet Second Seazon,” also making its DVD debut on that date, and with “Da Ali G Show: Da Compleet First Seazon.”

Following in the fourth quarter will be “Entourage: The Complete First Season,” “Todd McFarlane’s Spawn 1,” “Chris Rock: Bigger & Blacker” and “Chris Rock: Never Scared.”
