Grace Chen, Senior Manager of the PlayStation Store wrote on the blog post:
This is all part of a new television content offering from the BBC, making classic and current seasons of popular TV shows from BBC AMERICA available on the PlayStation Network. Each week, the “Video” section of the PlayStation Store will add additional BBC AMERICA programming, including Doctor Who, the channel’s record setting science fiction series featuring the eccentric galactic protector, plus many more hits set to debut in both High Definition (HD) for $2.99 and Standard Definition (SD) for $1.99 on the PlayStation Store throughout December.
UK users can access the BBC iPlayer via their PlayStation 3 consoles by connecting it to the internet, selecting the TV icon on the XMB (Xross Media Bar) and then BBC iPlayer.
The PlayStation Store offers a range of downloadable content both for purchase and available free of charge. Available content includes full games, add-on content, playable demos and movie trailers. [Wikipedia]
