In a recent interview, a BT representative commented on when the Onlive streaming service will hopefully launch in the UK. For those of you unfamiliar with Onlive, it is a gaming on demand service that streams gaming content to gamers and doesn’t require any large downloads. It can be used from either your Mac, PC or Onlive console.
“Well announce further details about our launch plans later this year, but we would hope to make it available by the end of 2011.”
Now that to me does sound like quite a wait especially when you consider that the Onlive service launches this month in the US. It will be interesting to see how well Onlive functions with various broadband speeds and quality settings.
