To quote: On Friday, August 1st, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue owners will receive a significant update that will take their racing and automotive experience to a new level.
The heart of this update is a new line-up of exciting automotive programming for "Gran Turismo TV", our in-game automotive media channel. Gearheads will enjoy a host of new free and pay-per-view programming, including "Top Gear", UK's premier car entertainment program, and Japan's "Best Motoring" video magazine, dedicated to the pursuit of the pleasure of driving.
Whether you're in the mood to tour Ferrari's factory in Italy with Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, or to be insulted by Jeremy Clarkson talking trash about your favorite cars, or even sitting down to watch some mad Japanese race drivers play 'car soccer', there is a variety of choices for all types of car fans. Gran Turismo TV is housed within Gran Turismo 5 Prologue so access and videos is all in-game!
