Just in time for Christmas, online TV service Lightbox launches on PlayStation®4 consoles - the first time Lightbox has been made available on a games console.
The Lightbox App, now available to PS4 users to download free from PlayStation®Store, gives customers another way to watch Lightbox shows on the big screen.
Lightbox CEO Kym Niblock said "This new PlayStation partnership marks another step towards giving customers what they want: great, ad-free TV, where and when they want it."
"Last month, Lightbox announced availability on Smart TVs* and selected Android devices. Today, we're pleased to expand this to include the highest-selling next generation gaming console in New Zealand - the PlayStation 4."
Of this new partnership, Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment ANZ said, "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."
New PlayStation 4 users can sign up for Lightbox on their desktop or laptop, then log in to the Lightbox app on their PS4 console. Lightbox's PlayStation®3 app will be available early next year.

* Lightbox app is available on all 2012, 2013 and 2014 Samsung Smart TV and Smart AV devices.
