Sony will today launch VidZone TV, a set of 100 preprogrammed channels for PlayStation 3 users across Europe.
i hope one day we can get something like this in the U.S.
I agree, hopefully at least before or by years end a few more countries will get this service.
Been waiting for this since it launched in the EU. I've downloaded it off of the EU store, to no avail - it's region locked, sadly. Being Canadian, I'll get it dead last though. We still don't have the tv/ video section on the PSN.
Yeah they should have had this day one, but better late than never I guess, if it ever comes to US.
It's a 3rd party company that only have the rights to broadcast in EU countries (not all). I'm sure they're working on the US/Canada but I wouldnt hold my horses.
Even if they charged some small fee i'd take this service. Wish it were an option here.
Maybe we'll hear of a US alternative at E3? Last.fm maybe?
When are we getting things like this in the United States? I also have nowTV from Hong Kong and just downloaded VidZone from UK, great stuff if you trick your IP/Signal Routing. Customers should have available to them as much content as possible and the companies will make more money that way. Getting Qore and UK's Play is great and checking out game picks from Japanese magazines is interesting too. More free stuff like Pulse and Tester is nice too...
To the US guys you might as well just use YouTube, it loads a lot quicker since the new PS3 FW update. VidZone has to update when you boot up if new videos have been added (5-10 mins) and the interface is really bad. Also the selection isn't great
Thanks for the heads up. I never watch/listen Youtube on my PS3, too slow for my liking. I'm gonna give it a try.
Ah :/ hmm, interesting and as Raztad stated thanks for the heads up. Though you know how us 'gamers' are if something looks interesting, gotta give it a try :).
I think he's just tryna make you guys feel better, VidZone has a great selection if you live in the UK, the interface has been changed up + the new TV channel stuff is dope.
Yeah, I like to try anything that my PS3 is capable of doing. I tried making a EU PSN account and downloading VidZone but it is region locked like some one above mentioned. I was able to download the app but not run it.
if its possible to do a playlist on youtube then thats even better... youtube has so much content...
Ohwell its free and an amazing service so can't complain,this is why I purchase sony products,build quality,exclusives and the free content
Isnt safe, i always get a warning from avast when i go on there about malicious content on that site, it always claims to block some threat i'd try to avoid it if i was you, or even ban the site from n4g on topic: i already have vidzone so i'll try this tv thing n see whats up with it
the benefit of using Linux, don't really have to worry about these things called viruses :D
so at least give e.u who have bought the most ps3s something without moaning peeps u guys have got loads of better stuff dont forget scee treat europe like crap .charged higher prices too
I'm using this new feature they added right now. I got to say, Why didn't you do this from the start? really make it more easier and unique LOVE IT
is going from strength to strength as more features appear each week .. the ads are a little annoyance which are off-set by the versatility of the application .. shame the US users have no access but like the other guys said here, SCEE sux balls in comparison to SCEA
Microsoft should look and learn as this feature on ma ps3 is just awesome.....
That's why you pay for an XBL subscription *and* LastFM besides.
I've been playing with the new feature for about an hour now and so far it's really good! Streaming music is a lot faster than it used to be, finding the music you want is easier and the menu is slightly redesigned.
No video but music all the same through the browser. Gotta guess come E3 if they announce a subscription service its going to be part of it. Though the smart thing would be to give everyone access with an option to buy.
