Watch PlayTV at work

Simple to follow guide to Sony's PlayTV in movie form inside

Interested in turning your PS3 into a TV tuner / recorder? If so, then you need to take a look at this handy little video that guides you through the process.

PlayTV will initially be available in UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain in "early" 2008 with other PAL territories following in due course.

The movie (in the player on your right) should answer most other questions you've got about the system operates. It all seems pretty straight forward. What it doesn't do though is tell us how much the box costs and when we're likely to see it down the shops. And that's quite important, don't you think.
