Default broke down and bought the PS3 slim

What a great machine, I am even impressed with the rechargable wireless controler. The only game I have bought so far is Infamous, I am so hooked on it, what a great game. I have been playing a couple of hours for 3 days now on just one charge of the controller. Thats some great battery life.
The only down side is I have not found a way to use the internet feature with any flash applications. I want to go to the NBC TV website and watch episodes of old shows I missed in my living room instead of on my computer. Anyone know if there is a way to do this ?

No Flash at this stage as SONY has not updated their browser. As far as I am aware the only way you can do what your asking is to download the episodes to your PC (Legal issues and availability not withstanding) and then stream or copy them to your PS3.

On the "Down the Road" plus side, there is a HD TV adapter coming for the PS3. This will allow you to record Free to air TV straight to your PS3 Hard Drive. (No confirmed release dates at this stage that I am aware of).

So up grade your HD size (very easy and non warranty voiding mod) in preparation

The browser must have some kind of flash plugin as I've been watching vids through flash based players for months. Youtube, megavideo, etc all work.

Maybe you could find the eps you're looking for on one of those sort of sites?

Infamous is great so is killzone2 and Batman. I hear Uncharted 2 is really great as well.

FYI Ash, Play TV (the HDTV adapter thing) is out in the UK, and from all accounts it works in Australia.

See the huge discussion on Whirlpool about it here:

FunkyJ I am sure I read some where that the UK version is only standard definition while the Australian release will be High Definition.

This is why I had not imported one myself ... and I have trouble waiting for anything! (Unless it is better to wait ... and as long as I keep telling myself it is better to wait ... "twitch" )
