Sony Computer Entertainment Australia has finally announced that Yahoo!7's catch-up TV service, titled PLUS7, is live.
SONY GIVE NA a T.V. STREAMING SERVICE GOOGLE T.V. OR SOMETHING
So I'm guessing I'm the only wondering why the title has three unnecessary full stops? Either way, I dont really care about T.V. Streaming. Netflix is good enough for me :) Other then that, i have my DVR set to record the new episdes. Speaking of episodes.. anyone watch the new Dexter EPISODE! (I COMPLETELY FORGOT FUCK ME!)
I had a go on it today, nothing special on it. ABC iView is better imo, unless you like shows like 'Better Homes and Gardens'. Pass. It's good that us Aussies get more stuff.
the three full stops are to indicate a pause. so it's "sony announces new psn services" pause for effect "for australians only" http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
@hazelamy I guess you missed my point. Ofc they are there for a pause. But, it really makes the title look unprofessional and also looks like it's downplaying the service JUST because it's for Au only.. oh wait it's N4G. Carry on.
on Oct 12...But I didn't think GTV had content...I thought it was a search/app/internet overlay to your existing cable service...not an iTV service in itself.
Reason why it might be good -Built in webbrowser, idk how good but it can't be worse then the PS3 current one right? i hope not -better access to shows - idk what else there are more just can't think of any right now i find it interesting to see Sony is teaming up with Google on google T.V., but this is for their Sony HDTV. I hope they have plans to bring it to PS3 On the other hand there are many other places sony could work out with NA, i jst hope they don't charge like Hulu
Sony just can't give us google tv; a deal has to be struck; and that being said, they probably did strike a deal with Plus7.
Hey sony, instead of giving us a TV streaming service in a country with terrible bandwidth caps how about you charge under $100 for a damm DS3?
Australia? What's that?
Better than America lol... /S Please don't troll me
That comment made me lol.
AMERICA F*&% YEAH!!! FREEDOOM SAVES THE MOTHER F&*%$#* DAY!!! AAMMEERRIICCAA FFFF$$$%%%^^^ YYYEEAAAHHH... Na just kidding y'all I love the yanks. Peace out from down under.
Someone's sh*t at Geography... Back to Primary school for you mr.
Its like America, but without all the crap.
It's like the same size as the USA as well, if not bigger. A bit hard to miss on on the map. No Mexican border for our big ass island either, or any borders for that matter HAHAHA.
Ever wonder why tassie is in the shape of a Merkin ? I have no answer btw....
I went to Tassie a few months ago, for all the crap it gets, it's a really nice place.
We may not have mexicans but we do have kiwis
us Australians dont ever get s$it compared to the rest of the world, our game prices are higher priced. We dont get the services that other sony stores get around the world. Go winge to someone else.
hell , even when ur paying more , ur getting less as the version australians gets are weakass no-blood games .
What about us Aussies then? Are we fail??? I think not.
A majority of Channel 7 shows consist of Australian made shows. Why would you even care enough to call Sony a failure?
ABC - one step ahead of channel 7 everyday of the week.
At least we Australians now get something other than our ridiculous overpriced games. :)
Good news I guess.
It's pretty crap, the videos on SevenPlus arn't even full screen compared to the stuff on ABC's iView. I can't complain much against free though, i just wish the Videos where full screen.
zoom in... EDIT: I just found a full screen option. So yes, you can fullscreen.
lol at people wondering why they dont get this in america. gee, maybe because you dont get the Australian TV station 'Channel 7'? you think that might be it? i wont be using it, as i have playtv on my PS3 anyway, and i download the TV shows i want to watch, but im sure there are some people that will use it so good on them.
Don't try and use logic on this website mate lol... That would make sense.
Nailed it. Americans think they are entitled to everything.
alot of Americans are assholes but I assure you not every single one of them is.
and I think that's an unfair generalization. We don't all think that and @ GOODKyle, there's assholes in every country. lol I think our media reflects poorly on us. We're not all self righteous, arrogant assholes who think they deserve everything. Their are people like that in every country.
like look at the 360fa!%[email protected] thats plagueing this site .shame.
ive travelled over to america a few times recently, and i must say, the people there could not have been nicer if they tried. all along the east coast, west coast, and some of the south, people were only too happy to help me and my mates out and were just plain friendly to us. its a shame that a few idiotic people get on the internet/tv and give entire countries a bad reputation. but the internet has given every idiot a voice, and unfortunately they all think everyone wants to hear it.
@IHateYouFanboys im glad to hear it
Crickey. Thats a bonza servo. I'm chuffed as a pig in sh*t to get the idiot box on me PS3. Cheers.
Best comment I've read in awhile, funny as hell + Bub. I never heard the TV refereed to as the "idiot box" before, lol. I just hope the Aussies see the funny side of it & take it as a joke. A bit of harmless stereo typing can be funny, hell I got a laugh off GT4 any time I brought Patrick Mc Creary out for a drink & he would start singing Danny Boy & talk sh!t & I'm Irish born & bred.
Great service for us Aussies, thanks Sony!
the aussies get some love from Sony...peace:)
navigation is nice. Can't wait to see ABC's new app (I think it was confirmed that it will be an app like VidZone's..)
Wow that would be pretty cool, now if only there was something to watch on the abc...
Good for the Aussies. Off topic rant: I just wish I could use the UK's BBC iplayer on my PS3. I only live across the the sea from the U.K. in Ireland & I'm region blocked. The funny thing is I'm paying my TV service provider partly to watch BBC 1 & 2 on TV but can't watch it online, which kind of makes no sense. Even more annoying is that it advertised all the time with no mention of the restriction. I suppose I can watch RTE 1 on TV & online, the only problem I find is... it's completely sh!t. They mostly show the most generic imported U.S. family comedies, I find those shows have a very childish sense humor which isn't remotely funny, their all kind of the same show with different names. Don't get me wrong, I do love some U.S. TV shows e.g. Spartucus (that's actually quite a risky show for TV), my favourite comedy TV of all time is Married with Children (Al Bundy should be made ruler of the world, lol).
I just watched last comic standing on it, it's pretty sweet- and no commercials, woot woot!
probably won't use it again as i have play tv...but thanks anyway :)
