Qwest Communications Int’l Inc. and Sony Pictures Digital Networks have forged an agreement to provide some of today’s most popular Sony entertainment and gaming services to Qwest customers for free.

SPDN and Qwest plan to provide customers with one-stop, broadband access to the content via a user-friendly Web portal. Customers who choose MSN Broadband powered by Qwest can easily link to the Sony entertainment and gaming services included in the offer through one integrated site.

Customers purchasing MSN Broadband powered by Qwest within the next six months can select either a Broadband Games Pack from Sony or a Broadband Entertainment Pack as a value-added feature available at no extra cost. Sony says the retail value of each ranges from $110 to $169.

The Broadband Games Pack includes the following online and/or downloadable games: Wheel of Fortune, JEOPARDY! Charlie’s Angels: Angel X, a 30-day subscription to EverQuest, and a 30-day subscription to the popular multiplayer online game PlanetSide. For its part, the Broadband Entertainment Pack includes Movielink movie downloads, music downloads from Sony Music, video and music creation software tools from Screenblast, a service for creating, enhancing and sharing videos, photographs and music featuring templates, scrapbooks, e-cards and film-style special effects. Also included is a 30-day subscription to SoapCity Download.
