    remanutd5, select Xperia mobile phones currently do have the Video Unlimited service for both movies and television shows. As we release new devices, we constantly strive to bring the best in Sony Entertainment Network, including video, games, music and more.

thanks for the reply Christopher , i hope the new sony branded cell phones become even better than the current ones , i really like the xperia s design , i currently have a tmobile touch 4G but i was planning to get the samsung galaxy nexus but i like the new sony branded cell phones , i just hope they get android 4.0 soon after launch , that would seal the deal and i think the best part of sony CES was to announce a unified network ( something that you guys should have done long time ago )

“Want great deals on films you keep forever? Introducing Own $5 Films, where you’ll find a new slate of films every Tuesday to keep for just 5 bucks.”
Why aren’t the HD versions of any of these films on sale? I wouldn’t expect them to drop to $5, but nothing at all is a bummer.

Also just wanted to say I’m happy the video store is back up to speed. It was loading incredibly slowly for a couple of weeks there. Now its about as quick as the game store. :)

btw: Zeta Gundam A New Translation I & III seem to be missing from the AnimeChannel list..

    megamixer, we run great HD promotions in the store as well. Right now, you find HD films like Ninja Assassin, The Departed and Wedding Crashers available to own for just $12 as part of our 12 for 12 campaign.
