Sony has launched a television remote control with a built in contactless reader that can be used to pay for watching on-demand content.

The firm has embedded its FeliCa contactless technology in the remotes of a range of Bravia TVs recently launched in Japan.

Viewers can pay online for video-on-demand services using Japan's EDY and eLIO e-money systems by tapping their cards against the remote controls.
