Sony Ericsson’s Qriocity video on demand (VOD) service will be available from 1 August on Xperia devices.

The video service will initially be available on the Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro in the UK, US, France, Canada, Germany, Spain and Australia. Japan will be included by the end of August and other Xperia handsets - such as the Xperia arc, Xperia neo, Xperia PLAY, Xperia pro, and Xperia acro – will be added through a software upgrade later this year.

Sony Ericsson's head of product PR Mattias Holm said in a blog post: "The service will provide you with an intuitive and user friendly way to buy or rent movies and TV shows from NBC, Universal International Television Distribution, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution as well as local studios. All the latest releases will be available along with an extensive back catalogue.”
