Sony is going to offer LocationFree TV, its revolutionary service that lets you record and watch programmes from your home country no matter where you are in the world. The idea is pretty simple. You setup a Base Station to your homeâ€™s video sources â€“ for example a Sky box + DVD recorder + broadband internet connection and install some special software on internet-enabled video devices â€“ a laptop or a Sony Playstation Portable – PSP. You can connect to your Base station via Internet and watch TV programmes on your PSP or schedule a recording on DVD recorder or play DVD on your DVD player connected to the Base station. Sony calls this cool solution NetAV.
Once I played a bit with PSP. It’s nice to play some games or watch video. There is a possibility to surf Internet but non-touchable display makes a navigation a little bit difficult.
