Connecting the Playsation 3 game console to the Inernet creates a new way of distributing television content to the TV screen in the home. BBC Worldwide, Polyphony Digital and Sony Computer Entertainment have just completed an agreement to make BBC’s Top Gear programme available for download through Gran Turismo TV (GT TV).
GT TV, a dedicated online channel packed with the latest news and content from the motoring world, will launch worldwide on Playstation Network in 2008. BBC Worldwide will provide 40 episodes of Top Gear for download. In addition, the Top Gear Test Track, the track featured each week on the show, where host Jeremy Clarkson and the Top Gear team test the latest cars, will be replicated in the game Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) on PS3.
