Original programming could expand beyond PlayStation Network.
Next month, Sony plans to introduce its newest gaming reality show "The Tester" on PlayStation Network. The Tester joins other original programming, such as PULSE and Qore, as the company looks to continue expanding its video content on the service.
Unlike Microsoft's Xbox LIVE model, where users are required to pay a yearly subscription fee of $50 to gain access to services such as Netflix, Sony's PlayStation Network is open to everyone free of charge. This allows the company to experiment with different types of programming and business models.
