TVNZ and Sony to Play Catch-Up?

TVNZ and Sony appear poised to launch their long-delayed video on-demand partnership that will let PS3 users watch “catch-up TV” online – but on a TV screen instead of a computer screen.

Media today received an invitation to attend a joint PlayStation and TVNZ event in Auckland on Tuesday that will announce an initiative that’s “set to bring entertainment lovers the best of both worlds”.

Details are being kept under wraps, even though news of such a service was accidentally leaked late last year when a TVNZ Ondemand icon inadvertently appeared in the video section of the XMB during the rollout of a PS3 firmware update.

In a November 20 statement,  TVNZ confirmed the broadcaster and Sony Computer Entertainment were working together to enable a TVNZ Ondemand interface optimised for the PS3. “Both SCENZ and TVNZ look forward to releasing more information in the New Year regarding the collaboration.”
