The PSP with its outstanding screen was made with video in mind. First came video on UMD, yet another proprietary format from Sony that never really caught on. Then you had the ability to download your own video clips, originally at a crippled resolution - but with more recent firmware releases at full device resolution. For those in the know it's a fairly simple process to copy your own DVDs onto a memory stick to watch on the move.
Sky have now teamed with Sony to provide the PSP with it's first official video download service - called Go!View. It's to be launched this summer. Details are a little scant right now - but it looks interesting. From the press release it appears you'll have to download video to your PSP via your PC - which would be a pity given the PSP is perfectly capable of connecting directly to the Internet.
Go!View joins a range of Go! branded services and products to go along with your PSP. Details of some of these are available on the following site :
Not much there on Go!View right now - but you can register your email address so you're the first to get details.
We're hoping to take a closer look at what seems to be a very interesting product and we'll of course bring you a full review.
