Sony Corp. board Chairman Howard Stringer, who became the first non-Japanese executive to lead the company, said he will retire in June.

Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and Walt Disney Co. are in talks with the largest cable TV systems to offer films for as much as $30 per showing soon after they run in theaters.

"We are looking into these claims."
