Guba, the video sharing website, has made a deal to bring Sony Pictures Home Entertainment films to its website.

The agreement is announced just a couple of weeks after Guba sealed a deal with Warner to bring its premium movies for download to the site.

The launch of Guba's deal with Sony makes it the first video sharing community to distribute Sony Pictures movies online.

Initially 100 titles will be available, including Spider-Man 2, Underworld: Evolution, Memoirs of a Geisha, Hitch, and Bridge on the River Kwai.

By the end of the year, the number of Sony Pictures films available is expected to reach 500.

Pricing is fairly standard, with download-to-own costing $19.99 for new releases, and $9.99 for older titles.

The videos can be downloaded to a PC, and copied on to a Windows-based portable media player.

The deal only covers distribution in the US so far.

According to a report on Cnet.com, the deal is non-exclusive, so other video-sharing websites still have a chance of winning distribution rights from Sony.

Before the recent deals with Guba and Wippit in the UK, the movie studios had restrict online downloads to firms in which they have a stake, like Movielink and CinemaNow.
