Sony has introduced PlayStation TV, an entertainment system that allows PlayStation 4 players to stream their PS 4 games to any TV in their house. It also has access to video and music streaming services and the ability to play hundreds of video game titles.

Released in Japan and Asian last November as PlayStation Vita TV, the system has since continuously evolved through software updates and content enhancements. Adopting the same chip sets and system software as the PlayStation Vita, PS TV has a 6.5cm × 10.5cm ultra slim size – the smallest of any PlayStation platform that connects to a TV.

● PlayStation 4 remote play: As with PS Vita, PS TV supports PS4 remote play and Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 4). This will allow PS4 owners in the living room to continue playing a game on a PS TV system in their bedroom. You can also enjoy most of your PS4 games on PS TV as if you were playing it on your PS4 system*.
● PlayStation Now: Once PlayStation Now is rolled out across the PAL region, PS TV users will be able to comfortably enjoy PlayStation 3 games via streaming.
● A vast line-up of software titles: PS TV offers a huge library of PS Vita*, PSP and classic PS One titles. You’ll be able to enjoy all of these titles using a DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 4 controller.

PS TV will be available this year in Europe and across the PAL region for €99 (RRP) and in the United States and Canada for $99.

This is useless if you don't have a PS4

False. You can use it without PS4 perfectly fine. All the video and music streaming services from Hulu, Netflix etc. and the music ones are installed on the playstation TV itself, not run through the PS4 either. Same with PSP and PS Vita titles. Can all be run directly from this without any other hardware.

In addition to what Waitwut? stated, you'll also have access to the PlayStation Now service when it launches later this year, which means you can stream playstations 3 games via the internet without anything else than a TV, PlayStation TV, and a controller. It's Playstations entry into video and game streaming, and from my experience using the Vita to stream PS4 games over the Internet and on my network, it works really well.
