PlayStation Network Launches New College Sports Applications

Brandon Stander's Avatar + Posted by Brandon Stander on Jan 10, 2012 // Director of Marketing, PlayStation Network

If you’re a fan of college sports like I am, you’ll be excited to hear that we are launching two college sports applications on PlayStation Network today to complement your sports entertainment experience.

Through the XOS College Sports and SEC Digital Network applications, PS3 users now have access to a customizable college sports platform to stream current and classic content on-demand, and make the PS3 the first and only gaming console to offer these applications. The new applications give fans multi-sport, multi-conference access to full games and historic documentaries along with the ability to play, pause and replay your favorite moments from some of the most watched games in history.

XOSSEC

Additional features of the XOS Digital college sports apps for the PS3 include:

  • Pre-game analysis from the XOS Digital Studio during the week
  • Post-game highlights immediately after the game as well as a “Game of the Week” extended highlight
  • Full games are available to purchase and watch the next day
  • Classic games and documentaries dating back to the 1950’s
  • Free daily programming including “SEC Today,” “SEC In The Paint,” “Game Day Central,” and weekly coaches teleconferences

PlayStation Network users will be able to download the applications from the “Media & Apps” category in the PlayStation Store later today and launch it from the TV/Video Services icon of the XMB™ (XrossMediaBar).
Hope all you college sports fans enjoy the games and features delivered via PlayStation Network!

    Most of the programming is free to watch. It’s only special events that you can pay per view.

Yea, I am wondering about the price of each game. However I like the idea if it is free for each game like the 360 has ESPN. I was wondering if we were ever going to get ESPN or any other channels.

Purchase games that happened the day before?! that makes sense. Social media,lame apps glad everyones hitting these phenomenon at the height of their trendiness. Why not install a better browser, have a firmware update actual DO something people care about.

Oh right sony dosent really listen to its customers. It just pumps out bandwagon gimmicks in technology now.

loving the sport apps on ps3. now I want to make a suggestion…though I know wrestling isnt a “sport” but can you guys consider getting a tnaondemand app? You already get their weekly show as a download from spike tv on the video store

This seems like it might be pretty cool, ill have to try them out. I still think we need a Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube application.

Thank You Sony. I love the SEC. It’s great college sports beyond football. I already have MLB and NHL apps. I wonder if we will see more apps like NBA or WWE for that Matter. I’ll be keeping my eyes open. Again. Thanks Sony.

If I can watch March Madness on it I’m in. Otherwise I’m a Big Ten guy so i have no interest in the SEC channel. The free programming will be cool, I’m just curious how much and for what we have to pay for.

+ AldenG on January 10th, 2012 at 1:32 pm said:

The SEC, where kissing your sister is also considered scoring.

Seriously, did anyone watch that fiasco of a game last night?

As long as they dont EVER put commercials on the XMB like on the 360 now (which is funny cause they are paying to see advertisements), I will be a happy PS3 owner.
