Will Sony Offer Movie Downloads?

Immediately following Sony’s decision to disconnect their failed Connect online music service, the media and electronics powerhouse is now considering a movie download service, The Associated Press is reporting.

“The Japanese pioneer of personal music players fell behind Apple Inc. and its market-leading iPod,” the AP report said. “It also got a late start on flat-panel TVs, forcing Sony Corp. to cut jobs, shut plants and shed underperforming divisions under the guidance of Chief Executive Howard Stringer, who took over in 2005.”

Sony also angered consumers with several high-profile PR mishaps in recent years. So this comes at a critical time for Sony.
