I'm totally prepared to lose bubbles over this...but was playtv released in America yet?

smokeybeef3788d ago

Nope, not even Japan. You can only get it in Europe.

PirateThom3788d ago

It may see a release once the US switches to digital TV.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3788d ago

Crap didn't we do that in February?

pwnsause3788d ago

no we didnt do it in feburary, it got delayed till i believe this month.

I wish PlayTV came to North America ( need Canadian love too :) ). The digital transition's due date is no later than June 12, 2009. This means that some television stations will still be broadcasting analog until they legally have to by the 12th of June.

Now i have a question. Will this switch really help out people who are already in cable and higher services? Better quality for us??

@ fezthabest ~ "Now i have a question. Will this switch really help out people who are already in cable and higher services? Better quality for us??"

Yes & No.

Yes because now all the remaining analog channels that are on our services will be 100% digital (so better quality right there, except for Satellite as they have been 100% digital for a long time already), and because of them being digital their "size" will be compressed.

HOPEFULLY allowing more channels, selection & HD offerings....BUT (and here is the "No" part) you know that the Service providers are somehow going to use "more stuff" as an excuse to charge more when in reality they are actually SAVING money because of the saved "space" digital offers them.

Basically more stuff but more money as usual by the service providers...damned bastards.

@ PirateThom ~ "It may see a release once the US switches to digital TV."

I find it highly unlikely (though I REALLY want PlayTV) because the reason PlayTV works well over seas is the additional service you get with the on screen guide and etc. and as far as I have heard there where/are no plans to offer something similar to that here in the states (though I would gladly love to be wrong ;) in this case!)

Cool to see they didnt forget PlayTV . It's a quite cool product that didnt get that much coverage though

LeShin3788d ago

Happy I bought it! Brilliant product! Nice update!!!

Only thing it needs is the ability to record series without having to worry about change of tv schedule and it'll be perfect.

MaximusPrime3788d ago

cant wait to get home and update it.

just in time to watch Champion league football on upscaled HD on ITV.

(another football match will be on Sky Sports HD tomorrow. of course that will be better ;) )
