- A few months back we reported
that ITV was in talks with Sony, and today TechRadar.com (linked above) reports that UK Channel 4
is interested in bringing their 4oD on-demand service to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system as well.
If 4oD was available on the PS3, fans would be able to view popular shows on demand including Skins, Father Ted and Come Dine With Me amongst others.
An unnamed source from Channel 4 has recenrly revealed to Broadcast Magazine that they are seeking to launch on the PS3 platform.
To quote: "Channel 4 is in talks with Sony to bring video on demand service 4oD to the PlayStation 3 and is also developing an iPad app. A report in Broadcast magazine reveals that talks are already ongoing, suggesting that they are still in the early stages.
Although the BBC iPlayer has already been a huge hit on the PS3 Channel 4's service would be the first commercial arrival. 'We're looking to launch on the PS3,' a source told Broadcast Magazine."
