Netflix, BlinkBox, LoveFilm, ITV Player and NowTV will not be available on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One systems in the UK at launch.
“We don’t have any confirmed information about these devices, but we will always try to be on as many devices as possible,” explained LoveFilm, while Netflix said they had no news on apps for Xbox One or PlayStation 4, but their “goal is to be on every device”.
Blinkbox, who has just launched their PlayStation 3 app, NowTV and ITV gave similar responses. The BBC and Channel 5 have yet to respond to our enquiries regarding a PS4 and Xbox One version of their players.
Back in August Sony posted a blog that explained “BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport, BBC News, Demand5 and LoveFilm” would be coming to PlayStation 4.
The question, then, is when?
