SPE Titles to Launch on Hikari TV 4K

TOKYO — Sony is to begin supplying VoD content to Hikari TV 4K, a channel run by NTT Plala serving Japanese viewers with 4K TV receivers.

Among the 25 Sony Pictures Entertainment titles initially on offer will be “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” “Elysium,” “After Earth,” “Men In Black,” and “Lawrence of Arabia.”

The end of year start of the service is timed close to the release of several Sony 4K products, include eight Bravia 4K TV models. 

In Japan 4K broadcasting is rapidly moving from the experimental channel launched in June by the NexTV-F (Next Generation Television & Broadcasting Promotion Forum) organization to full commercialization.

Cable and satellite broadcaster acTVila will debut a rival 4K service in February, followed in March by the bow of SKY Perfect-JSAT platform’s 4K premium channel. 

Sony is hoping these will spur a healthy uptick in sales for its long-ailing TV set manufacturing division.
