Does anyone know if Sony intend to bring the BBC iPlayer to the vita?

If you have a PS3 its possible to watch iplayer through remote play and the ps3 web browser, probably not what you are after but works for me until something better comes along :)

As far as I'm aware, they haven't made any announcements full stop.

Could really do with any tv catch-up app. or any app for that matter.
remote playable ps3 games? skype? netflix?

 

All promised. no news. typical Sony.

 


I'm the proud owner of an expensive psp emulator.

it's not that I 'aint' happy with the vita.
It's an excellent piece of hardware, I'm just not happy with no skype, ps3 remote play games, uk netflix or any information regarding the reason why we haven't got them yet.
If we have to wait another month or so, then fair enough. I just want to know why.

ok?

none of them were promised everyone just assumes we will get them or should already have them

if it was as easy as most people seem to think we would have every single app on the vita already but its not

when all these become possible sony will make the announcements until then have a little patience . its only 6-7 weeks old

Sorry about 'sounding like a broken record'. I just feel strongly about this.

I thought that's what forums were for. Obviously not.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

:Stupid:Countless times. just saw it here first, and just now on the other thread. So I stand corrected on the remote play thing. Sorry

 

Would've been cool though.

 

Still....

They did promise skype

Sony did announce Skype would hopefully be out at launch. That said they don't own it and obviously for what ever reason technical or other wise Skype/MS hasn't been able to deliver yet.

i would post the link, but using my vita browser so i dont think i can copy and paste (seriously)

google 'skype on vita' and you shouldf find the official skype blog announcement dated august 2011.

point of interest. it does only say voice calling.....

if you go onto the Playstation EU website and find the vita, under apps it has Skype as one of them. As BlackKnight said though, Sony do not own Skype, so as for an ETA on it, that's left to the developers.
I think Iplayer would be a great addition, aswell as the others too (4OD and ITVPlayer)

no news on that front I think, its up to the bbc and other owners of the services to create the app for ps vita and then give it to SCE to publish it to the store.

And you're beginning to sound like a broken record by posting the same old complaints and moans in every other thread. Remote play has never been promised or confirmed by Sony. Netflix and Skype do not belong to Sony so they aren't going to be able to do anything about or give you any updated information.

That's great news. Cheers for sharing that with us :xRolleyes:

 

Most people bought a Vita to PLAY VIDEO GAMES and there are loads of quality ones out for the Vita and plenty coming out further down the line.

 

If you want apps then buy a smart phone!!

 

Again DO YOUR RESEARCH!!

 

Sick of people moaning that the Vita doesn't have X,Y and bloody Z.

 

Just play and enjoy the great games available to you and if you are not happy with it then fair enough but people really do not care if you are selling your Vita or not!!

 

*Edit  Great first post by the way :xRolleyes:
