If you own a PlayStation 3 or plan to nab an upcoming PlayStation 4, you’ll soon be able to watch cable television shows through your consoles.

Sources say Sony has completed a preliminary agreement that, if seen through, will result in MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and Spike shows making their way to the PlayStation.

It’s unclear when Sony will begin offering the programming or if a paid subscription will be required. Right now, it appears the service would compete with the likes of Netflix, which is already available to PlayStation 3 (and Xbox 360) users.

Sony has also reportedly met with several other programming firms — including Walt Disney Company, CBS and Time Warner — to discuss bringing their content to the PlayStation.

The cable plan is designed to help the upcoming PlayStation 4 (due this November) compete with Microsoft’s Xbox One. We already know Microsoft’s console will provide users with a wide range of TV content, though again it’s not known how much it will cost users to access that material.

Microsoft is even reportedly working with famed director Steve Spielberg on a Halo television show. There may also be a Microsoft-NFL deal that would make National Football League games available exclusively on the Xbox One.

Clearly, Sony is facing a major challenge from its main rival. As usual, the key to drawing gamers will be price.

  1. Hey there! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I
    came to take a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information.
    I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

    Excellent blog and great style and design.

  2. Nutrition – Maintaining a well balanced diet with proper nutrition and being
    fully hydrated affects the appearance of your skin. If you want
    to do it without re-inventing the wheel; if you want to shorten the learning curve; if
    you would like to be in business as fast as possible, then here is a path that I wish someone had been able to
    help me with early on. If you decide to round up some outside insects for your bearded dragon, be sure that they
    are free of pesticides.

  3. I really love your site.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you build this web site
    yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to
    create my own personal blog and would like to know where you got this from or exactly what the theme is called.
    Thank you!

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    while people think about worries that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
