Qriocity mobile video service launches on August 1; Xperia mini and mini pro owners rejoice
Qriocity will land on your Xperia smartphone via a software update so you might want to keep an eye out for notifications. The service will let you buy or rent movies and TV shows from a list of movie studios, including NBC, Universal, Paramount, Sony Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros so the selection of titles will surely be a broad one indeed. However, only nine markets will have access to video content from Qriocity initiailly – the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia, Japan, Canada and the United States, so if you happen to live outside of these countries, you will probably have to cross your fingers and hope for the service to land in your homeland as well.
This is pretty much all that we know about the upcoming Qriocity mobile video streaming service so we cannot say how much rentals and purchases will cost exactly. Besides that, it isn't exactly clear whether saving content for offline viewing will be allowed. The answers to these questions will be known in a few days – enough time to stock on microwave popcorn.
