Okay, in a previous post I mentioned how I quite liked the GO!VIEW service for the PSP from Sony and Sky.
Having now used the service for two months I have unsubscribed.
I think I would have probably unsubscribed last month, but the service wouldn’t let me so I was automatically subscribed for another month.
So what’s the problem, it’s not as if I don’t watch “rented” video?
Well let’s see?
Was it easy to find what you wanted?
Basically yes, the Flash based interface was a little annoying and a little too clever for it’s own good, but for most purposes it was fine.
Were the files good quality?
Yes, as I said previously:
The quality of the Doctor Who video was quite poor, almost VHS quality, however I was more impressed with the quality of the Hustle video which was (in my opinion) as good as the quality I have managed converting EyeTV Freeview recordings.
Was it easy to move the files to the PSP?
Yes, and when you consider I was doing this on parallels on my iMac, I had added a extra layer of complexity.
So why have you unsubscribed then?
To be brutally honest, the one reason I have unsubscribed is that there is no new content.
In the last two months, there have been no additions to the content line-up. So we have Hustle season 1, but no seasons 2, 3 or even 4! We have Spooks season 1, but none of the other seasons. We have a single Doctor Who story and though you can rent the new Doctor Who, as part of the Entertainment package you only have the single Jon Pertwee Spearhead from Space.
True I could have watched other stuff, but I didn’t want to watch Desperate Housewives or badly made TV movies. I wanted more of the stuff I had watched.
So though it was only costing £5 per month, I’d rather not pay £5 per month for re-watching the same content again and again…
If they bring in new content, I may subscribe, but for now I’m going…
