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?
