Get your hands on the PlayTV Live Chat upgrade available to buy on PlayStation Store now.
Make sure you never miss your favourite series with the addition of series record.
Experience Live Chat with friends while watching TV. Set up your own chat room or join an existing one and text chat with your friends or anyone on PlayStation Network without interrupting your TV viewing. Up to 64 people can chat in each room and you can choose if you want your chat room to be open to your PSN friends, everyone else or just the people you invite.
Recommend programmes to Facebook and PSN Friends. Share your favourite shows and films with your friends. Send a recommendation to your Facebook wall with your own comments or recommend it to any of your PSN friends. Plus, your PSN recommendations appear as a message to your selected friends with your own message and a link for them to record or watch the show automatically.
Need some inspiration to help you decide what to watch or just curious what your friends and the PSN community are watching? With Community Favourites you can check out what people are watching right now and what they have been watching and recording over the last two weeks. You can also sort the info by your friends, or the overall number of recommendations, to see what's most popular with the PSN community.
Check out the new Premium Programme Guide. This update also includes a premium programme guide that gives you loads more info on the TV shows happening now and up to seven days in advance. The Internet based programme guide accessible via your TV allows you to see far more information on programmes than before, and with PlayTV's fantastic search function, you can search for the perfect show or film based on an actor, director, genre, plus a whole lot more.
To use these new features you will have to first download the latest software update from the PlayTV menu. Once this is installed, simply purchase the upgrade from PlayStation Store and start using the new features.
From 30 September 2009, all PlayTV owners in the UK must retune their channels. To do this, go to Settings > [Set Up] > [Channel Scan] and follow the on-screen instructions.
