Sony Internet Play Gets TVO And Cineplex Apps

The news from Sony doesn’t end with their latest e-reader. The Sony Internet Player With Google TV which I have discussed previously has two new apps available on it. One is the TVO On Demand app which gives you various TV Ontario current affairs and lecture programs, point-of-view documentaries, documentary series, and popular dramas whenever you want to see them.This is a big deal for TV Ontario who had this to say via a press release:

“TVO is pleased to be working with Sony to bring our content to a Canadian audience,” said Lisa de Wilde, Chief Executive Officer of TVO. “As part of our aggressive digital strategy, TVO is always looking to leverage new technology and increase our impact by offering our educational programs on a variety of platforms.”

Canadian content is the number one thing that sets the Sony Internet Player apart from similar devices seeing as it ships with the National Film Board app. That’s one big reason why this device has my attention.

The second app is the Cineplex app which allows you to browse showtimes, enjoy exclusive trailers, footage and interviews, buy tickets, and access you SCENE card directly from your TV. Both apps are available from Google Play.

On a related note, The Sony Internet Player With Google TV is now in stores. So if you’ve been wanting to get your hands on one, now is your chance.
