Vidzone launches Vidzone TV on PS3

Thursday, 22nd April 2010 23:15 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Thanks to an update on PSN, VidZone on PS3 is now known as VidZone TV, and now hosts over 100 music TV channels.

Launched last spring, VidZone now has 3 million users, which have played over 350 million streams, which equals to about 2500 years of videos streamed.

That’s loads of Adam Ant music right there.

VidZone has now been renamed VidZone on Demand, and VidZone TV just a new feature of it.

“We have dreamt of having over 100 music TV channels at your disposal for any mood or occasion at the touch of a button – this dream is now a reality,” said Ben Creasey head of production at VidZone.

“Via a small update to your existing application, VidZone TV gives you all the music you can wish for. Channels will fall under 5 categories – Artist, Genre, Year, Label and General (for everything else!)

“We think you’ll enjoy VidZone TV just as much, or even more, than VidZone On-Demand because, just like regular linear TV, it means you can simply select pre-programmed music TV Channels and let the music roll.

“No need to search the VidZone catalogue and no need to create your own playlist. In other words, prepare the party or get lazy and let VidZone do the work!”

Channels include: Pop Punk TV, 80s TV, Rock Legends TV, Celebrity Playlist: Dizzee Rascal TV, Dave Grohl & Friends TV, Video Of The Day, Kids TV, Teen Pop TV, Karaoke Favourites TV and loads more you can view through the
official website

There’s also been new features and updates added, which you can get in full over on the EU PS Blog.

    Its actually pretty good, got a fair bit of content, but for me the UI is a bit complicated. Not very easy to use.

    No enough indie/alt for my tastes.
    I guess 80′s TV will have to do.

    Also… Dave Grohl & Friends TV?? WTF?

    one of my most used apps on PS3, other than games of course;) , loved making up playlists of music vids but this saves you the effort if you’re not too picky i guess.

    I just gave this a try and found it slow to navigate, not very user friendly and then it crapped its pants and crashed. Dont think I’m going to rush back to this one.
