  • Hi All

    Just a note to say unfortunately, because of an issue (we didn’t get the video in time from the label:S) Eminem is no longer our Artist of The Week this week. But don’t worry Hip Hop fans, we have replaced him with Lil Wayne! He has been collaborating with everyone atm so see all his videos on VidZone!

    Thanks for your time

    Ben

  • Hi Again

    Sorry, Lil Wayne is only AOTW for the UK. Apparently we didn’t get the UK rights in time! New I should have checked before I posted that last one. Everyone else gets a healthy dose of Eminem!

  • Are the videos of Selena Gomez also available in The Netherlands?
    But I am happy to hear the issues have been fixed before I go on holiday.
    What about the Lena songs any news about those?

    • Hey DWF (hope you don’t me abbreviating.. your name is long to type all the time!)

      Yeah, you can get Selena in NL, you just have to search for her. As for Lena… Nothing more as yet… hit a bit of a dead end but we will think of a way… I hope!

  • Couldn’t care less about Eminem or Lil Wayne… Let’s hope Foo Fighters are working again :-)

  • Excellent news. Will check it out later today :-) Keep up the good work!

  • Ben does that mean all Sony videos are back on the service and when will the update hit are Ps3’s and finally whats the E-mail address to send in request for new Music Vidoes :)

    • Hi Reload

      Yep, Sony is back! all existing Sony videos will be live straight away, we are getting the most important new videos back up live as soon as possible (within the week) and then all the rest of the videos will be on the service as soon as we possibly can (We have a lot of great videos to get through!)

      Hope this is ok?

  • Artists Of The Week – Selena Gomez (Germany)

    Does this mean i cant watch all her videos in NL ?

    Or does she just have a spotlight on the banner in germany?

  • Problem….

    All the writing is black on black, so I can’t read most of the text. Is that a general problem, or just me?

    If I delete Vidzone will the icon still be on the XMB so I can re-install it?

    Thanks

  • i love vidzone … sorry … I LOVE VIDZONE . Ben any info about *de souza feat shena – guilty* , *lifelike & kris menace – discopolis* ? it was ther before. THANKS guys for your work

  • hi ben, i’ve tried to compile a list but i’m now having the same problem as mister_g (post no.8).

  • I hate VidZone …

  • Ben,

    I am so hacked off with VIDZONE right now. I’ve been a huge fan and always talk it up with people and have it on when I have people round. It’s never been perfect, but you guys kept refining and clearly cared, so I persevered.

    Last week I got fed up with nothing I wanted to see working and vowed not to bother with this service anymore – then I saw this post and just went straight on and put one of my playlists on. RUBBISH! 1st 3 songs: Angels – Within Temptation, Anathema – pressure and Forever After – Paradise Lost. It skipped th 1st 2 completely, then played Forever after, which jumped and flickered halfway through before stopping. But guess what? The effing ad break (which are TOO LOUD and TOO FREQUENT) worked fine!

    I want it to work, but I’ve had it with VIDZONE – as for sending it to the right email address…you send it; I’m trying to help you.

    • Hi G2owly

      I’m sorry you feel this way, We were having some issues getting all the videos working again and it only came to our attention when users started reporting it. As for the adverts, we need these adverts in order for you to not have to pay for the service. I know they can be annoying, but they are no more frequent than you would find on music TV channels which you have to watch what they think you should watch (and pay if you want a decent amount of them). We know our service isn’t perfect, we have so many plans to take all of your feedback and turn it into the service you wish for but it takes time to implement, but it will be worth the wait.

      Please bear with us, we know its been frustrating recently, but everything will be sorted.

  • more green day please and remove miley cyrus from vidzone thanks

  • Knock, knock… it’s Poland, again…

  • Really hope this service is back doing what it always did before the problems of the last couple of months, and that is a top notch music service.

  • Vidzone is nice and all, but Ireland doesn’t even have a video store yet! It’s been 2 years since it was first rolled out in the US. Any info would be much appreciated

  • Meat Loaf. Bat out of hell doesn’t work.

  • Meat Loaf. Bat out of hell isn’t working.

  • Guess what? Still no Poland!

    Come on, how hard can it be? Surely you have better lawyers than ZAiKS ;)

  • One small thing: The video for Malk de Koijn’s “Fågt op i skalle” has never worked in Vidzone – even before the PSN hack.
