I read from GZ that PS3 will have DVB-T at some stage - anyone knows when?

(Er mm DVB-T is HDTV tuner, correct?) Cheers!

It is supposed to be released in Europe around about now.

Here is a bit of info:

Probably won't be released here until after DVB-T transmissions start, maybe around the middle of the year?

There is also talk of TVNZ launching an on-demand service that will be accessed via the PS3 or X-box 360. Here is the article, however it's the Herald so who knows how acurate it is!

In an interview with The Press, Warwick Light, head of marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand, said "We're also hoping next year - about the same time that Freeview launches its terrestrial broadcasting service - to release a digital tuner for the PS3, turning it into a programmable TV recorder."

Has anyone heard anything more regarding this?

You can check out reviews of PlayTV here:

It looks like the European launch has been pushed back as a result of the testing process.  I think there are other threads on GZ that suggest an NZ launch later this year (3Q or so).
