You’ve had Netflix, you’ve had iTunes; the next contestant in the great “Battle of the Online Movie Services” is Sony’s Qriocity.

Heading to anything with a Xross Media Bar on it (be it your PS3 or soon-to-be-released web-connected Sony sets) in February, you’ll be able to stream video in standard-definition or 720p straight to your screen.

Theres already a load of film publishers backing the service, and Sony promise “hundreds” of films ready to go at launch.

Inspired use of the letter “Q” aside, it’s a pretty dumb name for a rather important service. Here’s hoping more thought went into the service than the moniker it wears heavily around its neck.
