Is it just me, or do Playstation 3 owners in the United States, which is the biggest market for them, get hosed when it comes to TV options? In Japan they can actually use their Playstation 3's as a DVR for certain TV providers. We do get some fairly good apps like the NHL and MLB apps, but nothing like what they are about to get in Europe.

Over on the European Playstation Blog they have announced that there is going to be a BBC Sports app coming this summer before Wimbledon. It will be in the Video section of your Cross-Media Bar (XMB) and will feature over 2500 hrs of live streaming of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England. It has the ability and will stream over 24 events simultaneously and they will all be in HD and FREE.

They will also be bringing Formula One and Wimbledon coverage live, with alternate viewing angles and coverage. Once again, the BBC Sports app launches this summer before Wimbledon. There will be more information in the near future.
