Soon you’ll be able to get hot and sweaty over this year’s Olympic Games without even needing to switch off your PS3. The BBC has confirmed that it’s bringing 24 channels of high definition Olympics coverage to Sony’s home console, as well as various Bravia televisions and standalone Blu-ray players. Naturally, you’ll find us tuned into the stream with Jessica Ennis on screen.

Once the Olympics are over, the application will be used to stream sports coverage previously only available via the "red button". The feature’s set to launch on compatible Bravia televisions ahead of this year's Wimbledon in late June.

Ace.
