PS3 Live Events App Hits Today, Watch WWE SummerSlam Sunday

Andrew Varda's Avatar + Posted by Andrew Varda on Aug 13, 2013 // Marketing, Sony Entertainment Network

John Cena will take on Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship this Sunday, August 18th at 4:00pm Pacific Time — and you’ll be able to watch directly from your PS3! You can watch WWE SummerSlam and many more live events to come using the new Live Events Viewer PS3 app that launches later today after the PlayStation Store update.

Live Events App

The Live Events Viewer PS3 app will serve as a hub for your favorite sports, concerts, and other entertainment events. The Live Events Viewer allows you to watch live content or catch up with on-demand viewing of wrestling events, concerts, races and more all with no subscription and no commitments. Some live events will be offered on a pay-per-view basis and other events will be completely free. New events will be added weekly, so be sure to check back each week.

To get ready for WWE SummerSlam, download the Live Events Viewer app for free:

  1. Log on to the PlayStation Store on your PlayStation 3 system.
  2. Scroll down to the Apps section and find Live Events Viewer for download.
  3. Once the Live Events Viewer is downloaded, find it on the XMB under TV/Video Services.
  4. Log on with your PSN or Sony Entertainment Network username and password.
  5. Then, enjoy watching WWE’s SummerSlam this Sunday, including the pre-show starting at 4:00pm Pacific Time (7:00pm Eastern), and other to-be-announced live events on the Live Events Viewer.

    Hi CaptinRadical. SummerSlam is a pay-per-view event. You can find further details and pricing on the WWE site: http://ppv.wwe.com

Free Summerslam? Oooooooohhhh yeahhhhhhhh. Dig it!

Pretty sure just the app is free and you’ll have to pay for the events…but it’s very handy.

Please find a way to get Drum Corps International competitions live on this app. That would be awesome. Thanks.

Will this app include coverage of Sony at events such as E3, Gamescon, Pax and TFS?

I cant find it in playstation store

+ komentra on August 13th, 2013 at 10:38 am said:

@13 – They’re saying it will be up when the store updates. They’re very bad about telling people that [and updating the store at a consistent time every week].

Andrew,
Will I be able to watch College Football on this app?

Glad to see you followed XBL’s lead on this – its a useful one to have. So how about having it on Vita?

Also, no one cares about stupid WWE

I hope you guys plan to use this to stream gamescom and other PlayStation Events. I’m hoping the quality will be better than the browser ;)

This is awesome.

+ cubbielovr on August 13th, 2013 at 11:10 am said:

I wish this was worded better. You are making it sound like we can watch SummerSlam for free as a “Welcome to Live Events” promotion. I plan on downloading this regardless, but you are really making this deal sound better than it really is, and @18, speak for yourself. I’m not in love with the WWE, but this SummerSlam card looks AMAZING.

Love this, anyway we can get a NBA TV app? or will NBA games be available on here? (i don’t have cable(nor want it)) so i would love it if it were on here, and you guys have nfl and mlb n stuff, only seems right to have basketball on there


25

+ lwolfcub on August 13th, 2013 at 11:16 am said:

this app is not worth it unless your willing to fork out lots of money


26

I would also like to note for you guys..I remember when there was maybe 3-5 plus sings on your blog comments..now look at these comments 90% playstation plus subscribers! keep up the good work folks! we really love and appreciate it!

Is the app only for the US?

+ Ryumoau on August 13th, 2013 at 12:30 pm said:

Would be nice to see SummerSlam on my ps3 but i don’t wanna spend more than $12 on it, considering how badly WWE creative has been lately.

+ ReyMo610 on August 13th, 2013 at 12:34 pm said:

Sweet app! This is going to be awesome if I can get all my WWE and UFC events on this, then there’s another reason to dump cable.


36

+ VanguardFate on August 13th, 2013 at 12:38 pm said:

Really was making it sound like Summerslam was a free promotional deal with the app…Should’ve worded it more like “If you order Summerslam, you can watch it on the Live Events Viewer” instead of “You can watch Summerslam on Sunday with the Live Events Viewer!”

    Hi makai1978 and the-foxxer. The PS3 Live Events app is available in the United States only.

I’d like to see more of a substantial list of live events that can be pay-per-view. As I’d like to get a better idea of “favorite sports”.

Is there any chance that this Service will be coming to Canada anytime soon? This is one feature I’d use a lot.

You’d also be doing something the Xbox isn’t currently offering in Canada…think about it

Ah too bad. Thought I could finally buy a PPV with a method of payment I actually have.
Is there a possibility this app will become available worldwide in the future?

Mayweather vs Canelo?
No?
Thats a pretty big event, it would be a great way to send off the service.
Give us boxing fans a reason to use this and we will support it.
Thanks for the app btw.
