The device will cost $99 (£59) in the US and 99 euros (£78) in Europe, and will include three games. The UK price has not yet been announced.
Available in Japan since last year, the micro-console is the firm’s efforts to take on other streaming television consoles like AppleTV and Roku.
However, unlike those devices, Sony TV will also let users access PlayStation games via Remote Play, and it will also offer access to third-party applications like Netflix.
In the US, it will also offer access to Sony’s game-streaming service, PlayStation Now, which will be coming to Europe and the UK in 2015.
The announcement was made during the PlayStation press conference at the Gamescom trade fair in Cologne in Germany, where Sony also announced it had sold 10 million PlayStation 4 consoles, better than rival Microsoft’s Xbox One.
