- PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen
has revealed that popular shows including Top Gear from BBC America officially debut today on PSN.
To quote: A lot of us around here are big fans of Top Gear
, the wildly popular and Emmy award-winning BBC
show that features a group of men doing exciting, interesting and potentially dangerous test drives of cars in different environments.
Now, we are excited to announce the U.S. version of "Top Gear" is making its debut in the PlayStation Network Video Store today. And, for the next two weeks, you can download and enjoy the first episode for free, offering a great segue to today's launch of Gran Turismo 5.
This is all part of a new television content offering from the BBC, making classic and current seasons of popular TV shows from BBC AMERICA available on the PlayStation Network. Each week, the "Video" section of the PlayStation Store will add additional BBC AMERICA
programming, including "Top Gear," "Doctor Who," the channel's record setting science fiction series featuring the eccentric galactic protector, "Being Human," the popular supernatural drama featuring a trio of friends who happen to be a vampire, a ghost, and a werewolf, plus many more hits set to debut in both High Definition (HD) for $2.99 and Standard Definition (SD) for $1.99 on the PlayStation Store throughout December.
So grab a pint, kick back, and enjoy... Cheers, mate!
