The company has already approached several media companies in an effort to negotiate rights to offer TV channels via the Internet.
If Sony is successful, the company will be able to stream the channels via Sony devices like the PlayStation 3, BRAVIA TVs and Blu-ray players.
Sony has 18 million PS3 owners in the U.S., alone, and there are an estimated 15 million more Sony Internet-connected device owners.
By comparison, the largest cable operator, Comcast, has 22.4 million subscribers.
