Laugh Factory app hitting PS3 in September
Hollywood-based comedy club releasing app on PlayStation Network on Sept. 1 with past shows and live performances; free until December, then $3 per month.
Come September 1, PlayStation 3 owners interested in comedy can download an official Laugh Factory application from the PlayStation Network. Titled The Laugh Factory Live, Sony says the streaming service will be the first live comedy application available on any console.
The Laugh Factory app comes from the Hollywood-based comedy club of the same name, which has hosted famous comedians like Dave Chappelle, Dane Cook, Tim Allen, Carlos Mencia, and Jimmy Fallon.
Those who download The Laugh Factory app will have access to video from "some of the best moments of the club's past," as well as upcoming live comedy performances. Sony did not say which previous performances or forthcoming acts will be available.
All programming through The Laugh Factory app will be free until December. Those looking to split their sides and slap their knees further can pay $3 per month after the free period ends to continue watching.
The Laugh Factory app is the latest video streaming service to arrive on the PS3. It joins Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, MLB.TV, Vudu, NHL GameCenter, and Hulu Plus.
