Step-by-step guide to Go!View video download service


Curious about the new Go!View on-demand style video service launched in the UK and Ireland? Having trouble downloading from the service? Oh, you are not in the UK or Ireland but you are nosy? Either way, Pocket Gamer has a nifty step-by-step guide to the service just for people like you. It tells you how to go about everything from downloading the PC client to a number of possible errors you might encounter. Check it out here.

European video download service 'Go!View' now live

The fruits of Sony and Sky's partnership (which, scarily, we first reported on just under a year ago) is now finally available to the masses. Go!View allows you to download video content to your PSP across an array of genres for a relatively small fee. Content travels to your PSP via a PC, so Mac users are sadly left out in the cold. Pricing runs on both a subscription model and a pay-per-view model, depending on the content you are viewing.

Movies and "Latest TV" will all be individually priced and include series 1 of Doctor Who (not sure that counts as "latest", seeing as series 4 just finished), season 3 of Lost and Resident Evil: Apocalypse. TV episodes are priced at £1.50/€2.00 with movies at £2.50 - £3.50 (€3.20 - €4.50). Alternatively, there are "Entertainment," "Comedy" and "Sports" subscription packs which cost £5/€7 per month and let you download as much content as you like.

These subscription packs are surprisingly fleshed out with classic 70s Doctor Who, Scrubs, Life On Mars, Red Dwarf and Coupling. The assumption is that the site will be constantly updated with more content, but we notice this fact isn't advertised. It seems like a pretty decent service to grab UK-centric on-the-go video content, but we would love to see it somehow integrated into the EU PSN Store. Might lessen the sting of knowing we're not getting a video-download service until 2009.

Go! View launched in UK & Ireland

Sony has just launched the European-exclusive video-on-demand service, Go!View, in the UK and Ireland. The service allows patrons to download content from the Go!View website onto their PC and transfer those programs onto their PSP.

Content ranges from such companies as: Disney-ABC-ESPN Television, BBC Worldwide, Sony Pictures Television International, NBC Universal International Television Distribution, National Geographic and Sky Sports. Some noteworthy shows are Lost, Desperate Housewives, Doctor Who, Top Gear, FA Premier League, and tons of movies have all been mentioned.

Comedy, Sport, and Entertainment Packs are available by monthly subscription, while movies and TV series can be transferred via the rental service. Subscription packs are priced at £5 (€7) for one pack, £8 (€11) for two packs, and £10 (€14) for all three packs. Users can try out all three packs free for a month. Rental TV is available for £1.50 (€2.00) per episode while movies are available for £2.50 (€3.20) each. Head on over to the website to get started.

Go!View available in Europe on June 30th


As expected, PSP news was few and far apart in this year's PlayStation Day conference in Europe. One thing of note: the Go!View video download service (exclusively available in Europe) will be available on June 30th. PSP owners will connect to a PC in order to download videos to their PSP systems. Content will be available on a pay-per-view basis, and through subscriptions as well.

Sony announces Summer release for Go!View

Sony has announced a "Summer" release date for the European PSP video download service, Go!View. Nothing more specific than that has been announced. No doubt we'll hear more news nearer the time. Go!View will allow PSP owners to download TV shows, movies and sports courtesy of the British TV provider, Sky.

From the looks of the official website, content will have to be downloaded to your PC then synced across to your PSP. We're hopeful that there will be support for non-Windows operating systems, but if the PC Store is anything to go by then that's probably not very likely. We're looking forward to hearing more about this service and, if you are too, then be sure to sign up for email updates on the official Go!View website.
