You can now download tele from the BBC and Sky, along with movies to watch on your PSP with Sony’s new Go! View service. While we still wait for Sony to launch a film and TV download series for PS3, at least we have Go! View for PSP. The Go! View website offers TV shows and films for a free. The current line up includes Lost, Heroes, plenty of comedies and documentaries, along with sporting highlights from Sky Sports and a smattering of recent blockbusters.
There are subscription packs to choose from entertainment, sports and comedy. They each offer unlimited TV downloads at $5 a month, 8 for two packs or $10 for all three. You can also rent individuals episodes for $1.50 and films from $2.50. A 45 minutes TV show weighs in at around 300 MB and a go minute film straight to your PSP too. TV shows must be watched within 28 days and films within 7 days before they are ‘locked’ and must be deleted.
Pictures and audio quality is excellent, but I really like the audio quality of the songs, but the programme line up could be more up to date, it’s a shame you can’t download the previous night’s TV or football match to watch the following day. It would also be nice to download shows using your PS3 before transferring them to PSP. If this was the case, Go! View would be a more compelling proposition.
