Sony: No PlayTV for America in forseeable future

On the second day of GCDC yesterday afternoon, Sony announced major plans for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable owners in Europe - mainly that it was to launch PlayTV, a device that links home consoles and televisions in order to record one channel while watching another, as well as also remotely transmitting moving images (live or recorded) to the PSP.

No you don't but look at ATT uverse and you will find out. You will have to pay to watch IPTV.

Sony PlayTV is all free.

Remember that..Mr Xbot troll.

but you might actually get more content for IPTV. I'm thinking this becasue xbl already gets exclusive content from some cable/satlite channels already.

I personally wanted to use both services so i could get exclusive content

But wait if i just make a European account is it possible for me to use this?
