Sony Working on a New Movie/TV Streaming Application

When Sony first introduced the PlayStation 3, they promoted it as the ultimate multimedia device that would not only play games, but surf the web, play music, and play films. Since then, the PS3 has greatly expanded its capabilities, bringing a whole host of features that allow it to do more than what you would expect from a console. If you’re one of the growing number of people that utilize the PS3′s multimedia features then you’ll be pleased to hear that the Sony are developing yet another movie and TV streaming application.

I wonder if they're bringing Qriocity to the PS3. The music end is there, and even my TV has the movie version.

I can't think of many other options.

doctorstrange2488d ago

But yeah, Qriocity would make the most sense.

iPlayer is in the hands of the BBC. It's just a website especially tailored for the PS3 browser. I think the player is fine. 4oD and ITV Player are the ones that need fixing.

I want something where you pay a monthly rate (like Netflix) and you get current TV too (like Hulu Plus) without the damn commercials.

Oh, and what happened to the rumors of Google TV coming to PS3? I'd like to see that happen.

doctorstrange2488d ago

Has had some serious sales issues recently, so it could really do with the PS3's huge install base.

Word has it the PS3 interface is getting a complete over haul sony's been all hush hush on the matter!

RioKing2487d ago

I've been hearing that for years lol

insertcoin2488d ago

I want to say it's something like Netflix for our friends across the pond, but it could be integration with a particular cable company for both movie and TV streaming. I am intrigued.

Youtube in HD? i know xbox is getting one (I just bought one 3 days ago :-))

Personally i think it's long overdue.

stormeagle62488d ago

I'm really hoping for this. The default Youtube player on the PS3 is abysmal.

metsgaming2488d ago

youtubexl is good use that. You can actually launch it by going into that icon above the normal browser i forget the name.

doctorstrange2488d ago

Are making Youtube TV shows soon, so I'd love a better way to watch em.

lazertroy2488d ago

Where have you been has been around forever not only does it allow you to watch youtube videos in HD on your PS3 browser but you can also download any youtube video straight to your your PS3 HDD. It also streams videos from sites like gametrailers,IGN,Gamespot and a host of others.

FAGOL2488d ago

Why would you need to watch YouTube on a console? I never watch youtube on my consoles. I can watch YouTube in HD on my PC(only if the video is available in hd) and HD still looks good on a non HD monitor

RawOnionMilk2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

I want to be able to watch in a party with a friend like Netflix on Xbox. That's all. Is that too much to ask!?

Maybe give us the option to purchase a theater space so we can watch movies with a friend via Home.

banjadude2488d ago

I'll have to check this out ASAP.
Thank you.
