Sony PlayTV


If you don't have TiVo or MySky but you do have a PlayStation 3, you may want to take a look at PlayTV. It's an add-on for your PS3 with no ongoing subscription costs, just a downpayment of $200.

This add-on device for PlayStation3 owners has its limitations.

One more time without Freeview please?...

For $169.95, PlayTV turns your PS3 into an HD PVR. And they’re bundling a 250GB PS3 with PlayTV for $599. Looks like a clear bargain, you’d think — and another step in the PS3’s advance to home entertainment status beyond gaming. Any problems?
