Xbox 360 owners have been enjoying SBS On Demand on their console of choice for a few months now, but PlayStation 3 owners can join in from today, with Sony announcing that the service has landed on the PlayStation Network.
"Announcing our SBS partnership, Australia’s premier broadcaster of original multicultural programming is exciting and signals our continued commitment to the expansion of the PlayStation 3 entertainment on demand offer," stated Sony Computer Entertainment Australia boss, Michael Ephraim. "Our entertainment armoury is broad, deep, immersive and compelling – with quality content across TV, games, music and movies.
“We are dedicated to providing our PlayStation customers more content and choice in the way they choose to access and consume it," he added. "We know from other TV on demand roll-outs on PS3 in Australia there is great appetite for the trial, uptake and customer appreciation of the convenience of new online entertainment delivery methods. Further, the opportunity for content providers to access a footprint of 1.5 million PS3 consoles in Australia, on the highest selling console of 2011, is also an incredibly compelling one.”
My first recommendation for anyone who hasn't dabbled in the SBS On Demand service is the awesome Aussie-made Danger 5.
