PS4 owners can now download and get SBS on demand on their PS4 in Australia.
The announcement was made today to allow gamers who are also football (soccer) fans, the ability to watch each match of the 2014 World Cup at a time of their choosing. A lot of the games of the World Cup this year are shown quite early in the morning from 2AM to 8AM on most days making it very difficult to watch for most people. The SBS on Demand app for the PS4 will help a lot for people who might like to simply wake up in the morning and watch the games (while avoiding spoilers of course) and the PS4 can now help with that.
Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia said “As the official video game console of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, we are really excited about the timely synergy of this collaboration which sees us expand our partnership with SBS ON DEMAND. Now, PS4 owners are able to cheer on Australia while they catch up on all the action from Brazil at a more palatable viewing hour!”
“Australians can already access SBS ON DEMAND via their PS3 and by adding the service to the PS4, our extensive range of quality shows will be accessible in more homes across the country for viewers to watch whenever they want.” said Caroline Bartle, Manager SBS on demand.
Of course players can also watch a lot of SBS’s other TV shows with the application as well and it allows you to browse through each of them and choose one that suits your interest. SBS on demand adds to the video player list for the PS4 which is starting to become more full with content as the months have gone by since launch.
The application is currently free to download and free to watch on the PS4 and is already available on the PS3.
