Despite declining support for the format, Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced it will offer MTV programming on UMD (Universal Media Disc) for PSP systems. This is SCEA's first such collaboration between SCEA and a major TV content provider, and the agreement will cover MTV programming including Jackass, Beavis & Butt-Head, and Aeon Flux, among others. PSP owners can watch the MTV series on the PSP's screen itself, or use the PSP's video-out feature to watch them on a video display. SCEA senior vice president of sales and business development Phil Rosenberg commented, "This collaboration with MTV is a key first step in meeting the needs of our consumers, who are utilizing PSP as a video player more than ever and are thirsting for more content, particularly short-form videos." He added, "MTV's programming is hugely popular, and SCEA can utilize our internal resources to appropriately manage the publishing and distribution of these hit shows on UMD. This demonstrates our commitment to supporting the UMD video format by delivering what consumers want to watch at the right price. SCEA will continue to license movie, TV, and other video content, leveraging our sales and marketing strengths, as a strategic focus moving forward."
