Sony PS3 and Yahoo!7 finally connect

Similar to ABC's iView, the PLUS7 service will allow PlayStation 3 users to stream their favourite Channel 7 shows via their PlayStation Network.

The launch of the service marks the first commercial catch-up TV service optimised specifically for the PS3.

Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia said, "With Plus7 now live for nearly one million PlayStation 3 owners across the country, Australians can enjoy more great TV content delivered not only exactly when they want to, but also subscription free in the heart of the living room."

This is also good news for PS3 owners as Sony continues to beef up its free online service in its increasingly intense battle with Microsoft and its Xbox Live service.
