TV streaming services Now TV and Sky Go are coming to the PS4 console, Sony has confirmed.

Hopefully, eager fans shouldn't have too long to wait. Now TV will hit the console this summer, and Sky Go will follow later in the year.

With both, viewers will be able to stream live TV programmes over their home Wi-Fi network.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky's brand director of TV products, said the services were coming to the PS4 because they've been such a hit with customers on the PS3.

"Sky is committed to helping customers access our great content, whenever and wherever they want," he said in a statement. "This deal is yet another example of that."

Sky's Now TV Box only costs £10, so it shook up the set-top box market when it launched last summer. The broadcaster has since made the streaming service available through an app.

It's not all been plain sailing for the service though. Last weekend, it suffered an outage with left customers unable to access the platform. This was especially galling for any who had shelled out the £9.99 daily rate Sky charges to access its sports channels.

The day of the outage saw plenty of football action taking place, including Sunderland v Cardiff, Liverpool v Chelsea, and Crystal Palace v Manchester City.

Sky will offer a refund to affected customers.
