TV Series Coming to US PSN Only?

Posted on 12. May, 2008 by in News, PSN Network, Rumours

It’s only a matter of time before Sony introduces downloadable movies on the Playstation Store, but Sev1512 noticed something interesting. If you look closely at the recent “What You Need” video around the 1min mark you will notice a couple of TV channel Icons. Could this mean we could download certain TV series?

I myself work in television and honestly I have no idea how Sony would get this right. Sony is aware that Ps3 gamers have more than one account, US, SA, UK and JPN so tell me how would the licensing of certain television series work?

One sure way is that it wont be free… We already know we cant use our South African credit cards on the US Store like in the past, we also know that many countries share the European region – South African Store is the same as the UK’s. So it only makes sense that Sony wouldn’t be able to supply licensing rights to the different countries that fall under the European region? Not so?

Now seeing as this video was released on the latest US Playstation Store it makes you wonder… Could this be another US Playstation Store perk that us Europeans wont see? Now I could be totally wrong and let’s hope I am. Downloadable television series would be awesome! Watch the video below and tell us what you think?

    Got a couple of questions when it comes to downloading movies off the Playstation Store. What size are we looking at to download HD movies? How long will it take to download one?

    I am guessing they will be 1gig plus, as for time wise it depends on your line speed.

    I doubt it will be limited to the U.S. PS3 Store. Although if it is it isn’t like the U.K./EU don’t have there own perks the U.S. may never see, such as Play TV & Go Messenger. In a sense Play TV is way better because you pay a one time fee for a piece of Hardware while if we never get it we have to pay per episode or seasons or whatever. So in the end I think that the U.K./EU got the better deal on this one.

    Oh, it’ll be a lot larger than a gig… I would think that a 720p movie would be at least 4 gigs quite easily…
