Movie streaming heading to OnLive?

Service due to start next year.

Still-in-short-trousers cloud gaming service OnLive is working up plans to start streaming movies, reports claim.

According to the Wall Street Journal, via Engadget, a Netflix-like service will kick off some time next year that will allow users to stream films directly to their TVs through the microconsole.

OnLive, which launched in the US last week, is nothing if not ambitious. Aside from this apparent intent to jump into the movies-on-demand sector, it also recently unveiled bold plans to offer all-you-can-eat gaming for just $9.99 a month.

While US gamers should be receiving the first shipments of the pioneering new gadget round about now, a UK launch is expected some time in the new year.
