Broadcast Magazine have reported that Channel 4 are in talks with Sony in developing their video on demand service for PlayStation 3. Like the popular BBC iPlayer, PS3 users will be able to watch and catch up on programmes aired on channel 4 in the UK.
An anonymous source at Channel 4 tells Broadcast, “We’re looking to launch on the PS3. 4oD is becoming a platform agnostic product and will be successful because of the quality of the content.”
Other platforms such as Youtube and Virgin Media’s on demand service already support 4oD and bringing this service to the PS3 would make this the services first availability on a gaming system.
