Canal Plus to begin VOD for the PSP Later this month Sony PSP owners in France will be getting access on on-demand content from the Canal Plus Group. Starting June 19 4,000 offerings from the company's CanalPlus internet-based VOD service will be available, encrypted with Sony's own DRM.
"It provides Sony with quite an appealing content proposition for their portable device, in addition to the games," said Dan Cryan of media analyst Screen Digest. "What's become clear for about every form of online content, with the exception of sport and adult, is that the PC is not a paying platform."

"But if you move it onto a device, people become more interested in handing over money," he added, citing Apple's emergence as the leading online movie and TV player for paid content.

News Corp owned BSkyB is also expected to be launching a similar service in the UK by month's end.
