PSP GoView Due in Summer

Sky's upcoming on-demand TV service (now dubbed Go!View) for Sony's PSP will be available this summer, the British TV network said today. The service lets owners of the handheld game system use the Wi-Fi connection to watch shows offered on Sky independently of the satellite connection. Viewers will have the option of either paying per view or else paying a flat-rate subscription fee for watching many more shows. Shows can be downloaded first to the PC for transfer to the PSP later.

The TV network doesn't discuss specific pricing or content but expects a diverse range of shows that will include sports as well as full-length movies. Sky also hasn't said whether the service will be limited to the PSP or whether it will eventually expand to include other Internet-capable handheld devices in the future.

At least some markets are expected to separately receive a PS3 video store later this year that offers downloads or rentals of movies and other content online, independently from traditional broadcasters, but isn't yet known to include an option for transferring movies to the PSP.
