PlayStation and Sky have announced the Go!View service, the first official PSP video download service in Europe, will go live in the summer.

Go!View will provide programming from the worlds of entertainment, comedy, sport and movies for PSP owners and will let them create their own individual TV schedule on their PSP - to watch whenever and wherever they choose.

Go!View will work on either a subscription or pay-per-view basis and users will need to register on the Go!View website where they can then download content to the PSP via their PC rather than via Sky box hook up.

"Go!View allows PSP users to take advantage of a unique service, adding another dimension to PSP's offering", said Owen Jenkinson, Go!View marketing manager.

"The opportunity to watch top TV and movies on-the-go and on-demand will allow PSP owners to enjoy their favourite entertainment on their own terms, enhancing the PSP's offering as a portable gaming console."

No firm dates, other than a "summer" launch, or pricing details have yet been revealed. We will keep you informed.
