No Sony TVii for Europe

Sony Nintendo TVii

It is known worldwide that the European continent is a little more complex than, for instance, the USA in the sense that it actually is a collection of different countries with different languages and legislation. But this never stopped companies like Netflix in an attempt to concur the old world with a Video On Demand service.
Sony however does not feel it is ready to do the same. The Japanse giant has decided to stick to North America and Japan with their TV / video service for their popular Nintendo Wii game console dubbed TVii.

This decision might mean the end of the TVii project since it will become increasingly more difficult to get premium content as a small player in the very competitive VOD market And gamers are usually very critical consumers. On the other hand, most of them probably will use Popcorn Time anyway.
