Sony Computer Entertainment Australia has announced that support for video-on-demand service Foxtel Play has launched on PlayStation 3, allowing subscribers of the service to view content from the console.
“Whether it’s music, TV, movies or games, PlayStation fans love all forms of digital entertainment and we remain committed to delivering the most immersive digital entertainment experiences on our platforms through PlayStation Network,” said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia. “Foxtel Play is a fantastic addition to our suite of entertainment services, one that all the family can enjoy.”
Rohan Lund, Foxtel’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “We’re thrilled to continue our drive to expand availability of Foxtel Play for Australian subscribers. With the addition of PS3, that expansion just got a massive boost for the 2 million Australians already enjoying great digital experiences on their PlayStation 3 consoles. Today that experience gets even better.”
Support for PlayStation 4 is also said to be "coming soon". Foxtel Play can also already be accessed via Xbox 360 consoles, PCs and several Smart TVs.
Sony and Foxtel are promoting the deal with a focus on the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, which premieres on April 7, controversially exclusive to Foxtel in Australia.
