Gaming on your PlayStation 3 and in the mood for some Canadian videos?  How about the iconic I Am Canadian video, or a National Film Board classic, like the catchy Log Driver’s Waltz?


The new YouTube app for PlayStation 3 is now available in Canada! It is a free download in the PlayStation Store, under My Channels.




Canadian friends, you might have watched YouTube on PS3 before, but get ready for a whole new world of video and features. We have a completely new experience, designed for the big screen and PS3 controls. Here’s what you’ll find:

  • Search: Finding the videos you want is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.

  • Your subscribed channels: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes official music videos.

  • Your phone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with a button it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
