With the PS3 finally getting iPlayer and Hulu compatability, it all seems well and good for those who want to watch TV on their PS3. Well Sky might be the next big name to add to the PS3’s list of TV based features. Speaking to TechRadar, Sky’s OnDemand Director Giff Parry Said:

“Currently consoles like the PlayStation 3 won’t play the Sky Player because of the way we protect the content [through Microsoft’s Silverlight]; so the PS3 wouldn’t be able to cope with the DRM,”

“However, I think games consoles are an interesting opportunity and it is something that we are exploring.

“We have a relationship with PlayStation because we launched the PSP service (GoView) so I look at consoles, and there are a lot of them, and they are obviously connected to televisions and the internet,”

Sounds good. I will be watching out for this, it sounds like it could be another cool addition to the video side of Sony’s juggernaught.
