Sony today announced that MTV will bring its programming to PlayStation Network’s video service for PLAYSTATION 3 and PSP in the United States. The partnership encompasses all MTVN brands, including MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, COMEDY CENTRAL, Spike, Logo, CMT, The N, TV Land and Atom.
The initial lineup of TV shows available for download to own beginning in February will include current shows including MTV’s The City, COMEDY CENTRAL’s South Park, Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and VH1’s Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels. New shows premiering in the spring will be added as they become available.
“We’re thrilled to add content from MTV Networks to our line up, it’s a perfect fit for the PlayStation demographic...” said Peter Dille of Sony.
Usage rules of the video delivery service allow content for purchase to be shared on multiple activated devices including PS3 and PSP systems per PlayStation Network account, depending on the type of content purchased by the user. One of the main value propositions of the PlayStation Network’s video delivery service is the ability to transfer standard-definition (SD) content from the PS3 to the PSP.
