One of my favourite (added a "u" for this British-themed post) sayings is, "Variety is the spice of life." The PSN just got a little more spicy thanks to BBC and BBC America programming being made available for download. Some of the more popular titles like Top Gear, Doctor Who and Being Human will join the network in the coming weeks.
Those interested in checking it out can download an episode of Top Gear for free until December 7. The regular price will be $1.99 (SD) or $2.99 (HD) per episode. While I'm not sure if it's worth it individually, it would be nice to see a subscription option. Check it out on your PS3 or PSP today!
