Lightbox now beaming to PS4

17 Dec 2014

New Zealand’s own entertainment streaming service, Lightbox, will now be available to use for the PS4 console from today. This is the first time the Lightbox service will be available on a video games console. The service was available for Smart TVs and Android devices last month. Lightbox CEO Kym Niblock says “this new PlayStation partnership marks another step towards giving customers what they want: great, ad-free TV, where and when they want it” Of the new partnership, Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment ANZ says, “we know gamers enjoy their content, so partnering with Lightbox is a logical choice. This exclusive console launch makes PlayStation 4 the first games device in the New Zealand market to offer owners thousands of hours of great TV content through the app”. User can sign-up for Lightbox on their laptop or computer and then log-in to the app via the PS4 console. Lightbox will be hitting the PS3 console sometime in early 2015. Lightbox offers a free 30 day trial, and then will cost you $15 per month from then on. The service includes many hit TV shows including Breaking Bad, 24 and more.
