As long as you don't want to follow the Home nations as the BBC is sharing coverage with ITV and SKY. 

BBC has very few Home nation matches.

This sounds terrific - anything that gives me more F1 content is welcome. Also, coverage for the Olympics will be great (for those of us without tickets ;-)

Re: BBC Sports Application coming to PlayStation 3!

Is it going to stream in various qualities, or is it just a one for all?

Being publicly owned content provider the BBC will not be allowed to block, BT ADSL broadband users.

you can expect the same 1.5Mb/s and lower Streaming. the same as Iplayer. The Content is as stated the lower quality RED button feeds as well any way and they are Not the 3.5Mb/s HD feeds. 

This app is not a PS3 exclusive it will be on Tivo boxes and Sony Internet enabled BD players, HDTVs and Apples IPADs.

Re: BBC Sports Application coming to PlayStation 3!

Er should this not have been out buy now to tell how many UK viewers are going to over load it. Would it not have been better to release the App with limited sport content so the servers could be adjusted for load balancing.

25th of june is less than 2 weeks away.

It's the BBC, I think the servers will be able to cope with it and will be prepared.
