Sony's first original TV series for its PlayStation Network will make its debut on March 10th.

On that day, you'll be able to watch the first three episodes of supernatural police drama 'Powers' either through the PlayStation Store or at The remaining seven episodes will air every Tuesday from then.

The first episode will be free for all to watch, but the rest require a subscription to PlayStation Plus.

The comic book adaptation was set to air in December, but was postponed. It focuses on a pair of detectives who investigate people with superhero powers.

Netflix and Amazon are increasingly turning to original, or at least exclusive, programming as a way to stand out against rival streaming services.

Netflix has had great critical and commercial success with its AMC's shows, with 'Breaking Bad', 'Orange is the New Black' and 'House of Cards' winning over critics on both sides of the Atlantic.

Both firms have started picking up shows dropped by other broadcasters, and both are moving into films too.

Microsoft planned a raft of original shows for Xbox Live, including contributions from Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg. Plans were shelved when new CEO Satya Nadella shut down Xbox Entertainment Studios.

Sony has a rich heritage of TV and film production, so we're expecting big things from 'Powers'. Let's see if it lives up to our expectations.
