What is PlayTV?
PlayTV is a High Definition Digital Video Recorder (HD/DVR) add on peripheral for the Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3).
Adding a PlayTV unit to your PlayStation 3 will allows you to watch HDTV or DTV on your TV as well as recording television programmes to the hard drive for later viewing.
The LiveTV feature gives you access to free-to-air TV channels in the widely available DVB-T network. Live TV programs are cached as they are displayed, so you can pause, rewind and fast forward any recently-viewed shows. You can also record and turn subtitles and audio description on/off.
PlayTV also allows you to watch one programme whilst recording another. Live TV also has a now and next bar so you can scroll through live TV and view what’s on other channels and what is coming up.
