YouTube app available now for the PlayStation 3

PlayStation 3 owners will be able to browse YouTube with an optimised app, available now as a free download for available countries.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has partnered with YouTube to release a new application optimised for the PlayStation 3. The YouTube app allows PS3 owners to sign-in and see subscribed channels, search using new tools and control the app using a smartphone. Official music videos are also included when viewing channel subscriptions, a feature previously unavailable.

Conduct an optimised search for LOLCATS on your PlayStation 3 with the new YouTube app.

The YouTube app is available in YouTube Serviced Territories where the PlayStation Store is also available, including Australia.

PlayStation 3 owners who wish to access the app can download it free of cost via the XMB, under the TV/Video Services icon in ‘My Channels’.

Earlier this month, Sony released a 45-second teaser video suggesting the company will make a significant announcement on February 20 at 6 p.m. EDT. The "PlayStation Meeting" will be taking place in New York, according to an invite sent to GameSpot by Sony. The Wall Street Journal has speculated that the event will serve as the official unveiling of the PlayStation 4.

Works fairly well in sync with the tablet. Way better than then samsung app on the smart tv (which is quite fidgety to connect to the wireless anyway). Had a bit of a problem at first as for some reason it started in spanish and I could not figure out why. Turns out it picks the language from your PSN profile and not for your console settings


Yes finally thats why i bought a gaming console to watch youtube clips now i can sell my pc, mac, ipad and iphone.
