Sony Cancels Movie And TV Rentals On Playstation Store

Sony Cancels Movie And TV Rentals On Playstation Store

Sony announces that their own contender in the ever-growing race of movie- and TV streaming services are being canceled. This is what they had to say about their decision.

At SIE, we strive to provide the best entertainment experience for Playstation fans, and that means evolving our offerings as customer needs change. We’ve seen tremendous growth from Playstation fans using subscription-based and ad-based entertainment streaming services on our consoles. With this shift in customer behavior, we have decided to no longer offer movie and TV purchases and rentals through Playstation Store as of August 31, 2021.”

However, it seems like if you’ve purchased any media content previously you can keep watching regardless of Sony’s discontinuation of the service.

“When this change takes effect, users can still access movie and TV content they have purchased through Playstation Store for on-demand playback on their PS4, PS5 and mobile devices. We thank our fans for their continued support, and we look forward to further enhancing the entertainment experience on Playstation.”
