Community features have been unveiled for PlayTV.
An update to the service will allow users to discuss television programmes as they are being broadcast.
Using the Chat Pad or USB keyboard, text chat can be displayed over the current broadcast or in a separate area of the screen. Public and private chats will be available for up to 64 PSN users at any time.
It will also be possible to recommend television shows to Facebook and other PSN users, allowing them to launch PlayTV and jump to the programme being shown.
PlayTV: Live Chat will be a premium addition to the service, and although details have yet to be confirmed, product manager Anja Liebl said that it hopes a price point will be "very attractive".
