Sony has said the new PlayTV, which turns any PlayStation 3 into a fully fledged DTT tuner and PVR, will hit the stores on March 28 in France, Italy, Germany, Spain and the UK. The recommended retail price is set at €130. The device allows viewers to pause live televisio, as well as record a second channel while watching another thanks to a dual tuner. The device also has Slingbox-like capabilities using the Remote Play functionality which allows viewers to watch live TV (or recorded programming) from anywhere with a WiFi connection. This can be done on any laptop, but also the PSP. See also our earlier report for more information.
