Unboxed: Sony Play TV

Forums - Sony Discussion - Unboxed: Sony Play TV

I have to admit that I'm assuming your Irish tv is pretty much the same as British tv, which I don't know that it is.

You do get freeview over there, yeah? That's not meant as patronising as it probably sounds.

Not being able to record two channels is a bit of a bummer. Most PVRs will let you do that, while also being able to watch a recorded program. But it's still a nice piece of kit. Probably the main bit of non-gaming kit that's made me interested in a PS3. Also unsure about HD channels, like BBC HD, but I don't think they're broadcast over airwaves and think they've gone to that freesat thing. Not sure.

Around the Network

Yeah we do get it alright.

the beeb channels and itv etc etc.





It's DVD-T, terrestrial numeric signal. So it work through antennas. Not with cable (DVB-C), not with satellites (DVB-S).

Watching these channels is free.

In France, it means access to 18 free numerical channels in SD and soon 5 channels in HD.
In UK, the freeview service will be accessible with the PlayTV.
There is no info yet about a US release.

They will know Helgan belongs to Helghasts

Not with cable (DVB-C)

Ok then I will not buy it. We only get government TV on DVB-T here.

Count my in if it makes it my way...
