The free-to-view PlayStation Access TV show is a success. The weekly programme from Future Publishing has amassed over 14,500 Facebook fans since it launched and has become the most popular free download on the PlayStation Network.
Episode one of PlayStation Access TV went live in late September after Future’s paid-for show FirstPlay was axed in July. The latter charged users to download episodes whereas Access TV is free.
The show takes its name from a series of PlayStation Access community events.
SCE UK senior product manager Ian Vinten told MCV: “PlayStation Access is an opportunity for us to reward gamers with trials of titles before release, invitations to exclusive events and an array of awesome prizes.
"We’ve been working on Access TV with Future Publishing as a way of highlighting everything that’s happening in the world of PlayStation that week. It provides an awesome platform for us to showcase what Access has been up to, the latest and greatest games on the console as well as raising awareness of what’s available on PSN.
“Feedback to the show has been very positive and gamers have liked the distinctly local take on their gaming world.”
