UK PS3 Owners Can Now Download US TV Shows From £1.49 a Pop

By Sam Gibbs on at

Still looking for somewhere to get your over-the-top TV without the likes of Sky or Virgin? Sony's just let loose a load of TV shows for purchase in the UK on its PlayStation Network. US TV shows are available in SD for £1.49, with HD setting you back another quid.

Highlights include 24, Arrested Development, South Park and Two and a Half Men, but season coverage is, apparently, spotty at best. Whether you're likely to pay £2.49 per episode, even if you do get to keep it, is questionable. Were are the 99p HD TV show rentals that would totally revolutionise the TV model? Considering you get a whole month's worth of unlimited streaming from LoveFilm for £9.99 a month, and with Netflix incoming early next year -- the thought of buying TV shows just seems a bit antiquated.
