ITV and Channel 4 on-demand channels are live [update]
Soon commercial programming from ITV and Channel 4 will be available to view via the PlayStation 3. The ITV Player and 4oD channels should arrive this week, according to the Guardian, allowing UK users to catch up on Corrie and the Peep Shown on their HDTVs
The update expands the PlayStation 3’s media capabilities. Last year, it started with BBC’s iPlayer, which has proven to be extremely successful, and recently we saw the addition of film streaming services from MUBI and LoveFilm.
Alan Duncan, the marketing director for PlayStation in the UK, has been reported to have said that ITV and Channel 4 could expect an incremental increase in traffic of about 10%. With figures like that, everyone will be a winner.
