EverythingPS writes: A video was posted on the Playstation 3 YouTube channel on the 21st September. It's entitled 'LOVEFiLM is coming to PlayStation 3'. It shows an advertisement that includes the Lovefilm app running on a PS3.
cool beans. on free online service :P
its not free, its basically Netflix but for Europe
true. i meant to say that you can access it online but login if you a paying member of LoveFilm
He meant that you don't have to pay twice to access this service. i.e. paying a fee to access the network, and then paying again for your service subscription.
Thats good, as soon as I get the money soon I think I'll subscribe, wonder what the extra charges are to stream films, if they are part of your monthly allowance thing lol. Only thing is, the XMB is already cluttered with icons, now there is ANOTHER icon in the Video section, it's getting a bit unorganised. They should put the icon in the TV section, since there is only 1 icon in the category anyway (for UK anyway).
"paying a fee to access the network, and then paying again for your service subscription." You mean like paying for XBL and then paying for Netflix ontop of that? It is really lame that you have to have XBL to use Netflix on 360, if your XBL subscription expires and you still pay for Netflix it won't work on your console anymore.
"You mean like paying for XBL and then paying for Netflix ontop of that?" Dur! :)
Video has: BD Data Utility Search for Media Servers Video Editor and Uploader PlayStation Store [Media Servers] [Connected media devices] [Videos on the internal drive] Definitely needs a clean up... the PS Store icon to start with. Personally? I would make better use of the "TV" icon, maybe rename it and have BBC iPlayer, Netflix, LoveFilm, whatever else under that heading instead.
I think a google TV app would go great under TV. I also think they could get away with putting search of media servers as the first option under media servers.
disable media servers, and you remove some, and many country doesn't have the TV column at all like me, and also video store
why disable media server!? just because you don't use it.
XMB defiantly needs tidying up (and speeding up) a lot of stuff that doesn't need to be displayed all the time.
I've disabled the media servers since I never use it so those icons don't appear for me, I agree with you though..it needs a clean up, and I hate having the store icon there AND on the game section as well. I love how the picture for the app looks very clean, it doesn't show any of the other icons that clutter up the Video section.
I use the Media server all the time so have to have it on. The XMB is so cluttered now, if they would just organise the columns more, like for the gaming colum have all memory cards into 1 icon and then can expand into PS2/PS1 etc. There is alot that still needs to be done to XMB but Sony seem to be slowing down in terms of features to XMB they are adding, just little extra's here and there. I still cant believe they haven't added the option to tick off which photos/videos etc to add to an album instead of having to go in and edit EVERY SINGLE ONE to change the album name, I have over 600 photos lol.
At least now they're starting to use the ps3 for something it's actually good at...movies..leave the games to the 360. fACT
First I've heard of LoveFilm, but seems like it's the Netflix of Europe. Always good to see more options for your PS3 coming out.
who would have thought.. finally i was wondering y sony or ms didnt bring lovefilm coz i am in europe and they are where i get majority of my game rentals and movies from.. just perfect..now i can watch on my ps3 and rent games without having to move ... sweeeeettt
PS3 gets it first just like 360 got netflix first. Seems PS3 is now ahead of the pack when it comes to these things. Then again this is Europe I don't expect MS to care too much about anything outside the US.
That is why the brits get Sky on Xbox 360!
i have a lovefilm account. wen will this app be comin?
but I rather they get Sky player on the ps3.
Thats on the way too. The deal with Microsoft was a timed one.
The deal was not timed on the 360 for sky player it won't be on the ps3 as player use silverlight to stream there service and the ps3 can't do silverlight. Been wanting ms or Sony to add this service to one of there consoles for ages as I have play tv n sky player on them both but the uk was missing a film service in the UK.
Doesn't matter if something uses silverlight for display on the 360, since all UI elements require silverlight now. Doesn't mean it won't come to the PS3. As someone else mentioned, Netflix on 360 uses Silverlight but on the PS3 doesn't.
I think you misunderstand, Sky player on ALL formats (i.e PC, 360 etc) use Silverlight, they dont broadcast using anything else.
Silverlight isn't the core code, it's a middleman. Silverlight only operates as a holder of the media type. The media can be displayed using any other method and utilizing the same core code. Silverlight is just Microsoft's way of trying to get everyone to use their middleman implementation. It doesn't take much to implement the same core code into other middleman methods. You could distribute your media in practically any format with the same core code with some very comparatively minor modifications to the front end of the application. It's like someone saying a Web site has always been in HTML and yet I can also publish it as tons of other file formats with some extremely simple modifications to the page (meta content-types).
galvanise is right, it was anounced that sky would eventually come to ps3 ages ago.
No it was said by sky that they would like to offer sky player on the ps3 n the Wii but because they use silverlight for there service Sony n nintendo would have to enable there machines to do it. It would be good to get sky player on the ps3 as I use playtv on the ps3 through my pspgo when I'm away with work so to get sky this way would be good too. But can't wait for love film to be on the ps3 will be a good service to have.
Netflix uses Silverlight too...but guess what...its on PS3 now too....
Don't care for Sky Player tbh...my Sky+ HD Box is so much better. Hell even a regular Sky+ box is better than any form of the Sky Player be it on the 360 or your laptop. Things like BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Lovefilm, ITV Player are awesome for 360/PS3 because those are naturally hooked up to your TV and the only other way to get em is on your PC/Mac. Those kind of things to me are more desireable than the likes of Sky Player, even though the SP 360 app does work quite well indeed.
Sky player is very possible on PS3 as for a timed deal I don't even think it was a timed deal I just don't think Sony want this service as its a rival to there own PlayTV. Which they just released a new version of.. In the future they may release a deal though..
There's PlayTV? That does me well, although I too would like a sky player on ps3, hopefully Galvanise_ isn't raising my hopes up =P
Whussis? Porn or something? Cuz that'd be sweet. Playstation 3. It only does horseplay. Ah, it's like Netflix. Damn, talk about missed opportunites.
Nah, it's just a streaming/rental service. "Netflix Europe".
with about 3% of the content to boot, and it costs more
i'm sure you were probably joking but a quick google search would have yielded results
Plenty of porn sites accessible from the PS3's brower. From what I've been told...
But while surfing you have to hold the controllers with both hands whereas with computer you can one handling the mouse. :)
fuckin' dirty pervert mind lol
haha I thought the same myself
Nice, always wanted this on consoles seeing as the US has Netflix. Hopefully it will come to the 360 also.
And this is like the 3rd or 4th player app that Europe's getting?
there is still many countries that don't got a film service for the PS3 yet (like Norway) and i did't even knew about this site, il check it out, but so far it can't beat my discount BD's
I never really use online movie rentals but how is this much different from what we get on the PSN? Just interested to know thanks
well....you dont have to pay for each movie rental. just a one flat fee per month, and you can watch all of the movies and shows you want. this app on PS3 being the European version of netflix, this is awesome.
PS Store is a "per movie" cost, this is a set subscription per month for as many movies as you want.
Ah I see thanks for your response guys, might never use it but if it is what people want I am all for it. Edit: I wonder what the Google/Sony announcement will be tomorrow??
What Google/Sony announcement are you talking about?
Probably some announcement regarding Google TV.
Shouldnt it say streaming thousands of titles through their PS3 to their TV's?
ah cool stuff. My cousin has a subscription with them...might give this a whirl to see if its any good :)
good for Europe. I wish Netflix rented games as well as movies
blah blah blah,the truth is 360 will never be a complete entertainment console without BLU Ray drive period . The truth hurts .
How does this have anything to do with LoveFilm?
don't look at me :P
I'm not a Lovefilm subscriber, never was keen on having movies posted as I'm very impulsive when it comes to movie watching. If Lovefilm have a decent subscription model I may well be interested though. I've never paid much attention to them if I'm honest but the ability to stream it to my TV via my PS3 is quite an interesting feature and now has me taking notice. I suspect the addition of Netflix to the 360 (and later to the PS3) probably had the same effect on many people. Now what I REALLY want as far as another service under the TV icon here in the UK is 4 On Demand. That would just be awesome.
It's something pointless only for Europe.
Yes, like Netflix was something pointless, only for the US and Canada.
europe ps3 get excellent support
What's so great about this? We already have Netflix.
North America has it (USA and Canada) And America isn't the whole world.
UK don't have Netflix hence why this is going to be the UK's Netflix...
US centric much? There is a world outside the US guys. Widen your minds. This is top news. been hoping for this cos I'm a subscriber and massive movie fan. Just hope they don't limit it to just pre 2009 films.
Ive been a LoveFilm subscriber for about a year and their service is 2nd to none for games and movies. Cant wait for this, its great news.
great news I'm a lovefilm subscriber as well
MS should have looked at this as a substitute for Netlix for the UK user base, but as it's MS they don't really care. Sony keep it up!
