Music Video service Vevo has been added for download. That will make Vidzone redunant as Vevo looks amazing with its streaming quality.

ITV Player on the PS3 is very poor so I doubt they'll ever bother. But the PS3 just got the All 4 update and it's pretty good, really annoying it hasn't made it over yet.

Didn't realise you was leaving AVF. All the best.
He is joining the MSDF. As such he had to revoke all positive posting privileges in the Sony section of the forums. Shame really. They must have spiked his tea.

If It's just a case of copy and pasting new stuff that's announced. Sure someone will post it.

Doesn't Sony maintain a list of apps online somewhere (other than having to dig the store)?

What are people's experience of Now TV on the PS4 and in general? I have picked up two boxes with 3 month entertainment passes at £12 each. Just in case I ditch Sky in the next month or two.

I know streaming isn't 1080, but is the service generally reliable?
