PlayStation Store to stop selling movies and TV shows
PlayStation Store to stop selling movies and TV shows

Sony announced on August 31 that it will suspend purchases of movies and TV shows through the PlayStation Store.

The thriving video streaming business makes it easy for some companies (like Sony) to access a lot of content, but it makes managing the digital storefront less attractive.

For this reason, Sony decided to stop buying or renting movies and TV shows through the PlayStation Store at the end of August.

If you want to buy or rent videos on PlayStation later this year, you will have to look for third-party services.

The Japanese electronics giant believes that the explosive growth of subscription services and ad-supported broadcasting has reduced the need for inbound purchase and rental options.

Sony said: Any movies and TV shows you purchase from the PlayStation Store will still be available on PS4, PS5 and mobile devices after August 31. We look forward to making your PlayStation entertainment experience even better.

It's not clear how effective it is to rent TV shows and movies through the PlayStation Store, but there is no doubt that these products have lost much of their importance since their introduction in 2008.

Streaming services like Netflix and Prime Video now dominate the online video space, and those looking to buy or rent content can use third-party options like the Apple TV app.

Plus, there aren't many incentives to use the PlayStation Store, especially if your device can't use it.

However, if you rely on the PlayStation Store to check out relatively new movies and TV shows, this ad will be miserable and the experience will not be as smooth as before.

This isn't the first time Sony has removed unknown media from the PlayStation Store.

The company announced in October of last year that the revamped store had arrived before the launch of the PS5 and users would no longer be allowed to purchase old games and downloadable DLC content that was originally released for the PS3 or PSP and Vita, unless you browse that content. equipment
