Sony’s Plan for $40 Movies at Home

Companies across the consumer electronics landscape, from Amazon to TiVo, are scurrying to deliver movies to TV via the Internet, some more successfully than others. But Sony may be poised to do them one better.

The Japanese electronics giant, which also owns a major Hollywood studio, has quietly been making the rounds among other film companies to sound them about showing their movies on TV after they appear in movie theaters but before they can be seen on DVD or online, Business Week has learned. If the idea catches on, it would establish a new market for studios, who are facing declining DVD sales and an uncertain box office.
