At Sony's GamesCom press briefing, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe chief executive Andrew House announced six new Catch Up TV channels for the PlayStation 3, including ITV in the UK. Today, ITV has detailed its deal to make the ITV Player service available on Sony's console by the end of this year.

The deal is the first of its kind with a commercial broadcaster in the UK, says ITV (the BBC's iPlayer service is already available on the PS3 and Nintendo's Wii), and will add the channel's catch-up service to Internet-connected PS3s. The service allows viewers to watch ITV shows up to 30 days after they have been broadcast.

The ITV Player will be free but funded by advertising, with "pre-, mid-, and post-roll video ads being sold and served by ITV," meaning ads may play before, after, and during shows. After the ITV Player launches for the PS3, owners of the console will be prompted with a software update, which will add an ITV Player icon to the TV section of the main menu, where the iPlayer service currently resides.

The Sony deal is part of ITV's broader plans for "multi-platform distribution," including "games consoles, TV- and mobile-based devices." The ITV Player, based at ITV.com, was first launched in 2007 and gives access to programmes on ITV1, as well as on digital channels ITV2, 3, 4, and CITV. At the time of writing, the ITV Player's most popular shows include Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Dinner Date, and The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Excellent! Now I can choose to avoid watching Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Dinner Date, and The Jeremy Kyle Show!

BBC4 IPlayer FTW!

Forgive me if I'm wrong but can't you just bookmark the url of ITV player in the ps3's internet browser , and 4 on demand for that matter and view them that way?. I did it with Iplayer before I noticed the link to it in the TV menu.

Well I don't know about the PS3,I don't have one, but on the Wii if you use iPlayer through the browser it's quite laggy. Using the iPlayer channel it very rarely glitches.
Hopefully ITV and channel 4 will follow the Beeb's lead and come up with their own Wii channels.

There is a site called www.tvcatchup.com which used to play via the ps3 but since this latest update it's just sound and no pic.

Works ok on PC/Laptop. Also iPhone aswell.

Not sure, bbc player works still.

In some cases it's easier for people to use a Ps3 to get TV as there is no need for a good arial signal.
