BBCi Player Coming to PS3

Amongst the raft of PS3 and other announcements from Sony in the last day or so was this little snippet. Good news for us Brits!

Digital TV - News - BBC iPlayer coming to PlayStation Network - Digital Spy

To quote Digital Spy:

"Sony has announced that BBC iPlayer will soon be made available on the PlayStation Network in the UK, along with a new movie streaming service.

The electronics firm revealed the news during its official press conference last night at the Gamescom exposition in Cologne, Germany.

Under the initiative, PS3 owners will be able to stream BBC programming on their consoles via a sanctioned link on the PSN. Currently, gamers are only able to do this by accessing the PS3's in-built internet browser.

Alongside this launch, Sony will also introduce a new film service to the PSN in November after agreeing licencing deals with the major movie studios, including 20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

This new video delivery service will allow gamers to buy or rent a variety of new and library titles, and also download them to the PlayStation Portable device."
