Sony Playstation 3
The sony PS3 has been around for a long time now and is due to be replaced by a new 'PS4'. As well as being a very good games console, it is also a great device for playback of media and streamed content in the home. It is also one of the few consoles with a Blu-Ray player.
At the end of 2008, BBC iPlayer became available on Sony's PS3 console. In September 2009, a link was added to the PS3's XMB menu, linking straight to the iPlayer site. The PS3 accounts for a sizable amount of iPlayer usage now, mainly because it uses a 1500Kbps stream for a high quality picture
21st September 2010 - PS3 update 3.50 adds 3D Blu-ray movie support.
