Just like Freeview?
A channel full of adverts? We're nearly there now. Other than the BBC channels I've managed to flick through the entire range of Freeview TV channels, hitting nothing but fecking adverts, on many an occasion!

A central 3D hub for users.
Sounds like Central Station on PS2 which was an online news portal accessible from the console. There was very little content on there and it was updated infrequently. That's likely what we'll see here. Very few people will access it so sony won't update it while it will become just a no-where selection taking a slot on the menu and a binary slot.
