Guba to add Sony videos

Online video site Guba is clearly in the good graces of Hollywood these days. Fresh on the heels of last week’s deal with Warner, Guba announced a second internet film distribution deal with Sony this evening. Favorites like Spider Man 2 headline the content. In the short-term the experience will mirror the Warner deal, so many of the limitations/issues raised by TechCrunch readers after the last post remain. Still, the deal is good for Guba – any distinction is a plus in the crowded online video space.

One of the more interesting aspects to the deal is the fact that it’s Sony. It’s a toe in the water; not a dramatic move, but at least it’s something. With hardware and gaming and limited internet success to date, will this deal be one of many that signal a change in Sony’s digital and internet strategy?
