In an effort to catch up with Microsoft’s Xbox Live services, Sony has also opened up for download TV shows in their PlayStation Network Video Store for UK PlayStation 3 owners, allowing them to choose from a wide array of TV shows such as Breaking Bad, South Park and Arrested Development-popular American TV shows.
The service does not come without some oddities. A costumer may not download the entire season and only some parts of a season are available for download. Odd in a sense that this service is supposed to compete against the much mature iTunes and lure others away from Xbox 360.
Price for Standard Definition (SD) starts at £1.89 for SD and up to £2.49 for High Definition (HD) shows. Downloaded shows are for keeps in the gaming console.
