Sony's latest LCD televisions will come with electronic money that users can spend on downloading movies and TV programs

Sony's Bravia W5 and F5 series will be equipped with electronic money card readers for pay-per-viewing via an internet connection.

"People would prefer electronic money to credit cards, as the amount of one payment is usually very small"

Electronic money is being used in Japan already on a large scale, such as through credits held in mobile telephone "wallets" or on commuter passes.
