Sony to launch PS3 Internet TV service in Korea

Sony PS3 PVRSony and KT, a large Korean telecom company have announced that they'll launch an internet-based service next month that will turn a Playstation 3 video game console into a television receiver.

This brings the number of ways to watch television on your PS3 to two: In August Sony announced the PlayTV, a digital TV tuner for the PS3.

The new service will allow PS3 consoles to tune into Mega TV, KT's IPTV service. Mega TV lets customers with high speed internet connections download and save programs for viewing later. It's kind of like a subscription-based video-on-demand service. There's no way to watch live content. The Playstation 3 hardware could certainly support live video streaming, but so far Sony has not reached a deal with any streaming IPTV providers.

There's no word on how much Korean PS3 owners will have to pay to access Mega TV.
