Just received:


Just in time for Christmas, online entertainment service Lightbox today launches on PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles. This is the first time Lightbox has been made available on a games console.
Lightbox CEO Kym Niblock says “This new PlayStation partnership marks another step towards giving customers what they want: great, ad-free TV, where and when they want it”.

“Last month Lightbox announced availability on Smart TVs and selected Android devices. Today, we’re pleased to expand this to include the highest-selling next generation gaming console in New Zealand – the PlayStation4.”

Of the new partnership, Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment ANZ says, “We know gamers enjoy their content, so partnering with Lightbox is a logical choice. This exclusive console launch makes PlayStation4 the first games device in the New Zealand market to offer owners thousands of hours of great TV content through the app”.

New PlayStation4 users can sign up for Lightbox on their desktop or laptop, then log in to the Lightbox app on their console. Lightbox’s PlayStation 3 (PS3) app will be available early next year.

I just started the app to see how it looked but I got a message telling me it's undergoing maintenance.

Hi, are you still seeing this issue? Is the WiFi reception OK where your PS sits?

I don't suppose you have plans for a PS3 version? Or does making a PS4 version automatically mean you can release a PS3 version?

And will this appear in the store for those of us with US based PSN accounts?

Quick thought - do you have it setup with a VPN/DNS connection that could trigger our geoblocking? Anything else around the network setup that's odd?

PS3 to come ASAP - worst case in the new year, but hopefully before then (we're lowballing and then trying to surprise positively).

My DNS is set by my ISP, I don't use a VPN, I have an NZ PSN account. My network is normal and I don't have issues with geoblocking on any other NZ site.

The message I get says "We'll be back soon! We are currently undergoing maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patients."

Patients? That error message needs cleaning up looks like. 

Is your firmware up to date on the console? Anything at all you can think off?
