The Guardian is reporting that both ITV and Channel 4, two of the nation’s largest commercial channels, are bringing their video catchup services to the PlayStation 3. The ITV Player and 4OD have had web-based services for some time and now they have both made deals with Sony, who expects their overall traffic to improve by 10 percent.

ITV says they are open to adding their content to “other consoles,” web-connected TVs, and tablets, while Channel 4 has had no luck with Xbox 360 deals and the Wii isn’t for them since it doesn’t support advertising. Sony however is very open to more content and welcomes them.

Fox, others considering 99-cent iTunes TV rentals?

There had been previous rumors, but now a new source claims that Apple is deeper into negotiations with Fox’s parent company News Corp., as well as “other media companies”, regarding deals for the plan, which would give one or two days of viewing at half the price of a purchase. CBS and Disney are also considering it.

The rumors around iTV persist as well. It would cost just $.99 and have a “smaller hard drive,” a flash drive, and would rely more heavily on streaming than locally stored media. Some other detailed rumors have said that it would still stop at 720p, but that it would run a variant of iOS and could have an app platform.
