BBC, Demand 5 And IGN Video Services Confirmed For UK PS4 Launch

No Netflix to be seen yet.

We’ve finally got our hands on a PS4 at TSA and we can confirm some of the findings of my previous investigation regarding PS4 TV and film services.

ps4video

As you can see from the screenshot above, the UK PlayStation 4 currently has BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport, Channel 5′s Demand 5 service and also the IGN app. No sign of Netflix, Lovefilm, NowTV, ITV, 4OD or BlinkBox.

Some of these apps should arrive on the PS4 after – or perhaps even in the run up to – launch, Netflix told us their “goal is to be on every device”.

    Looking forward to Christmas morning now. I guess this means TSA has been given a review unit?

    4OD would be nice, I should imagine it’ll appear at some point. Any news on Vidzone?

    Are these services behind a paywall?

      No. Unless there’s a Paywall from provider. Which there isn’t.

    Random(ish) question: YouTube was always Standard Def on the PS3, wasn’t it?
