First look at the RTÉ Player for PS3
Yesterday RTÉ announced the availability of their video on demand service RTÉ Player for the PS3. The player is now available to Irish PS3 owners as a separate icon from the PlayStation home screen, under a new ‘TV’ menu item.
The move from RTÉ to make their content available on the games console comes just one day after similar strategies from ITV and Channel 4 in the UK. The service is similar to that offered by the web version, allowing viewers to watch RTÉ One and RTÉ Two shows for up to twenty-one days after their original airing.
Commenting on the deal with RTÉ, Niall O’Hanrahan, managing director of Sony Ireland stated:
“The availability of RTÉ Player on the PlayStation 3 adds even more entertainment to the console and gives people yet another reason to enjoy the PS3”.
