All-New VidZone Out Today

I’ll be honest; I never really use my PS3 for anything other than games. There are those, however, who take full advantage of the multimedia services on offer, and they will be pleased to hear that the all-new VidZone launches today. For those who don’t know, VidZone is a free music video streaming service.

Brand new features available include:

  • Zones: Instead of browsing through thousands of videos, uses can go straight to a Zone that suits them most. Zones categorise music videos by genre or theme and direct users to the type of videos they want to see the most – making is easier and more fun to discover new videos or artists – Rock Zone, Pop Zone, Hip-Hop Zone, Party Zone or Live Zone are just a few examples.
  • My Zone: Create a completely customized experience with the new My Zone feature.  Music video lovers can add all their favourite playlists or TV channels and start building a library of only the music videos they love the most – then jump straight into the content from the VidZone home screen.
  • V-Mix: This smart playlist generator will play music videos by artists similar to what the user is watching at that time.
  • Social Connectivity: Confessing your love for a music video is simple.  With Facebook integration users can share all their recommendations with their friends and with a few simple clicks they can invite PSN friends to join them in VidZone just as easily.
  • Optimised Search: Completely updated, VidZone now offers up-front shortcuts to the most popular content, as well as a redesigned search function including ‘similar artist’ functionality that makes finding videos quick and easy. Brand new progressive search instantly displays results of artists / videos by just typing a few letters. The more letters typed, the more defined the search.

  1. Used to use Vidzone quite a bit. Always found it quite fiddly, but used it nevertheless. Then I got a 360 and use Last.FM all the time now, far better service IMO.
    I know it doesn’t have video, but the music selection is far better for my tastes. The Kinect control is a nice touch too

  2. I didn’t use it for many reasons listed here but the most important one is that it didn’t stock anywhere near the diversity that I desired. Dead to me until then.

    • Do you use Last Fm on 360? There are some belting artists on there.

      My current stations consist of :-

      Ray Charles
      Tom Waits
      RHCP
      Beastie Boys
      Hilltop Hoods
      Sweatshop union
      The Doors
      Sam Cook ….

      I could go on, but pretty varied and very well catered for on Last FM. The hip hop channels can throw up some crap sometimes. But more often than not there are cracking and sometimes surprising artists/tracks on there :)

  3. WOW am on it now and It’s such a improvement over the old one. It’s much faster and nicer to look at everything just works a dream. Making your own playlists for music you like is easy. Great work vidzone guys keep it up. And I only used it maybe 2 times a month before I be on it a lot more now

  4. OMG The new interface is SWEET!!

  5. I’ll try it out

  6. Anyone know if they got the floyd yet?

  7. That seems like a good change, I did find it somewhat challenging to locate the music I wanted with the current setup.

  8. Just downloaded it a lot better UI and performance much more improved. Really good update to be honest.

  9. I constantly use vidzone. This news is awesome.

  10. Highly approves of the new look.
