      Hi remanutd5

      You can access VidZone via your Vita with Remote Play if you like. Give it a try and tell us what you think!

    Nice! Looks really cool. Can’t wait to try it.


    + Thwip on July 16th, 2013 at 9:21 am said:

    “…to our American comrades!” So no Canada? Is it one of those apps where I can use my American account to download the app and have it work when logged into my Canadian account? Imagine you can’t really answer that question anyway :)


    + Butters360 on July 16th, 2013 at 9:25 am said:

    Will definitely use this. At the same time, Music Unlimited desperately needs an update. Music Unlimited should already have this feature.


    + WrekGar on July 16th, 2013 at 9:30 am said:

    This is a definite add to my XMB right along with my Music Unlimited. Now not only can I share my music discoveries from MU now videos as my friend Cade would say AWSOME-SAUCE! Great video Sid.

    PS Vita???


    + digital_clover on July 16th, 2013 at 9:39 am said:

    Just watched the video. I’m curious, are there any Katy Perry tracks on this service?

      Hey digital_clover

      Miss Perry is definitely fully represented, go check her out now!


    + Wayndawind on July 16th, 2013 at 9:40 am said:

    Aww Snap, I didnt see this one coming. To busy trophy hunting. Thanks, PS and Vidzone Squads. Much love!


    + PhoenixDowny on July 16th, 2013 at 9:42 am said:

    Will this app feature Symphonic (Nightwish), Indie Music, EMO (Flyleaf) and Christian Rock/Pop/Rap (TobyMac/Andy Mineo)?

    I suppose this is PS3 exclusive once again. No PS Vita love?


    + Wayndawind on July 16th, 2013 at 9:52 am said:

    WHAT!! Remote Play… You should have said that in the Blog. Now if only the other apps can follow.


    + AngelCROME on July 16th, 2013 at 10:05 am said:

    Finally!!!! It took about 5 years to get this to the US but better late then never. Bring it to the Vita and PS4 next. Thanx guys, u just made my day. :)


    + SolduNuts on July 16th, 2013 at 10:07 am said:

    Man I thought this would never make it across the pond. Thanks for bringing this to the US. Remote Play as well, that is just insane. I will be fully testing this out later tonight after work especially Remote Play. Again thanks for making the PS3 better even though the PS4 launch is right around the corner. I hope that this app using Remote Play will be a good sign for more games and other apps to use this feature on PS3.

    I’m a little confused do you buy Music videos? Download…stream them?

      + Jon Pike on July 16th, 2013 at 10:22 am said:

      Hey DrApollo

      Unlimited, free music video streaming! Hopefully that is the answer you were looking for!


    + ossiecastro5 on July 16th, 2013 at 10:18 am said:

    Well this looks interesting. It better have some 80’s – 90’s Freestylemusic. :D


    + paulogy on July 16th, 2013 at 10:19 am said:


    I remember being excited when I first heard about this, then disappointed it wasn’t in the US. Then I forgot about it since.

    Being a huge fan of music videos, this is great news for me. Will be downloading it as soon as I get the chance! So great to continue to see PS3 / PSN support :-)


    + DrApollo on July 16th, 2013 at 10:23 am said:

    Yes! That was the answer I was looking for! …Thank you and Awesome!


    + Satnamji on July 16th, 2013 at 10:25 am said:

    As someone who grew up with MTV back when they showed music videos, I’m very excited about this. Can’t wait to catch up on some of my favorite classics!

    Quick question: I have a PS3, of course, but recently bought a Sony smart blu-ray player (BDP-3100) for another room. Any chance the app will be available across other Sony platforms like that as well?


    + PainOfSarrow on July 16th, 2013 at 10:25 am said:

    pretty kool but the youtube app is all you need. i guess this may be more easy to navigate ? il def download this app and give it a try. HIP HOP, is deadddd.

    About Damn Time! :D


    + Ryusennin on July 16th, 2013 at 10:32 am said:

    Enjoy the glorious VHS quality…!

    Seriously, VidZone is nice, but I rarely used it since its release a few years back. I can’t see US folks getting excited over this app, when they have so many VOD offerings that are completely locked out of continental Europe.


    + alexisloki on July 16th, 2013 at 10:33 am said:

    Is it out today? I don’t find it in the PS Store.


    + ICE_KOLD_KILLA92 on July 16th, 2013 at 10:40 am said:

    I have a VERY important question: Are all video from the European version available on the US one? I use to have the UK version and stopped using it because it was missing many big artists mainly from Warner. Are Warner artists/bands finally available? Is all content the same? I want to know if I should get the UK or US version.


    + ICE_KOLD_KILLA92 on July 16th, 2013 at 10:41 am said:

    It’s not out yet because the PS Store hasn’t updated. The PS Store updates in the evening on Tuesdays usually.


    + perrandy on July 16th, 2013 at 10:47 am said:

    can this app be downloaded thru vita’s download content manager and later copied to my ps3??


    + CaruthK on July 16th, 2013 at 10:47 am said:

    Its about time. I was thinking Vevo app but this will do just fine…


    + Sharingan_itachi on July 16th, 2013 at 10:56 am said:

    Thank you based Sony for not supporting PSVita and only by doing via Remote Play – which requires PS3.


    + ggoops on July 16th, 2013 at 10:57 am said:

    I still want a native app for Vita. So that I can use it while traveling in hotels, airport etc.

    I can tolerate 3rd parties not fairly treating vita. Sony should give PS3, PS4 and Vita equal treatment.


    + zenparadox1 on July 16th, 2013 at 11:07 am said:

    I think the youtube app is fine thank you very much. The video demo showed me all commercial hiphop junk. I have a feeling I would have to navigate (avoid) tons of popular stuff to get to see anything interesting. I’d rather just do a search on youtube.

    Good that there are more apps for people to enjoy though

    im in milwaukee and i dont see it at all

    Sounds like a great app. When can we get it in Canada?


    + Belkan2087 on July 16th, 2013 at 11:41 am said:

    “Hundreds of pre-programmed music TV channels”.

    That sounds good. I going to check it later.


    + DaPinz on July 16th, 2013 at 11:50 am said:

    Wow it’s about time! I wanted this since four years ago from the initial launch of the service… Please tell me this carrying over to the ps4?

    How come I cannot find this in the Playstation Store?

    Are these vids in HD?


    + iannmiguell on July 16th, 2013 at 12:33 pm said:

    Is it only for Playstation plus members?


    + PainOfSarrow on July 16th, 2013 at 1:06 pm said:

    iannmiguell maybe you have to wait for the official store update today.


    + iannmiguell on July 16th, 2013 at 1:07 pm said:

    ah, thanks so much!


    + DecadanceFantasy on July 16th, 2013 at 1:27 pm said:

    I love music videos, so this sounds like fun. Just hope I don’t have to wait for buffers all the time.
    I’ll have to give it a try. I have no clue how to enable remote play for the Vita.


    + Ryumoau on July 16th, 2013 at 2:27 pm said:

    couldn’t i watch these same videos and more on youtube?


    + tusunami on July 16th, 2013 at 3:45 pm said:

    lol just ignores all the canada questions…

    I’m all for more apps.

    I’d prefer a Vevo app though.

    No offense VidZone.

    Great App. Too bad there are hardly any videos on it. Not even 1 Linkin Park video. Really? lol
