Sony has told IncGamers it will consider adding more on-demand TV players to the PS3 XMB following the success of the BBC iPlayer.
Who needs PCs now eh?
Well for now we do, but soon... so soon we won't...except to make video games.... then again if LBP is an indicator of what is to come then?.. lol. I just hope Sony can get a worldwide player up and running. It would be so cool to be able to watch shows from anywhere in the world... without needing a Satellite dish, PC, or running borderline illegal hardware and software.
I wouldn't be surprised if the SkyTV thing that MS has comes to PS3 in 6 months. Still imo it is pointless because you are paying £15 a month for a sub standard service (also dependent on internet connection). Instead you could pay £17 a month and get a free satellite dish & set top box installation, over the air (therefore stable) and more channels.
Gotta be a good thing, right?
Totally. On demand TV is increasingly popular. It's a very smart move on Sony's part.
BBC iPlayer is amazing. Love being able to use it directly with my TV without annoying cables and settings :)
Please Sony: 4OD. I want to be able to go through Peep Show again.
You can access 40D through the browser. Just bookmark it and it'll be almost as good.
it just does it better. graphics(uncharted2,GT5,last guardian,heavy rain,killzone 2,etc) games(highest rated) media(web browser,dvd upscale,bluray,tv players,music video channels) online at 40-60-256 and rising again....it just does it BETTER.....and well...everything.
how can you hate that, i sure dont

I'd love to see some of these services come to the states. Hulu or other services would be highly welcomed. Even just an optimized browser version of hulu similar to youtube would be nice.
Cannot wait for more stuff like this Now all we need is the UK Government, BT and broadband companies to get upto speed, lift broadband caps and start improving the broadband speeds in this country. I'm with TalkTalk, and having a 1mb speed and 80gig/month cap is virtually killing my uses for things like this. Its why i don't consider the Skyplayer service on the 360 to be a big deal just yet. Speeds and caps are just ruining the service and quality you receive.
Probably more sh!t in UK, bring something to Poland Sony bastards
You must be the only Polish person not living in the UK then.
Hopefully they add ITV Catchup
Sweet! Get them stateside
And for good reason, you don't pay a UK TV liciense.
What about canadians when will we see this kind of stuff???????????????
The More, The Best
5 on demand would be good. Im always missingf the gadget show and it'd be good to be able to watch them on a dedicated player on my ps3 instead of using the ps3's web browser =D
How about just updating your freakin' web browser? Getting Hulu to stop blocking it?
