Sony has announced that Freeview PVR device PlayTV will launch on September 19th in the UK for 69.99.

According to a post on official Sony site Three Speech, the PS3 device allows ‘recorded content to be transferred to your PSP, or viewed remotely with Remote Play - something we reckon will come in quite handy'.

Sony boasts that the device is 'future proof' for HDTV transmissions – currently planned by OFCOM to be introduced in the UK between 2009 and 2012, as the analogue signal is turned off.
