There is bad news for PlayStation users who use video rentals and online shopping. Sony is shutting down the service later this year.
As you may already know, you can watch movies and TV shows by going to PlayStation Store. Sony will stop this later this year.
Sony has announced that it will be discontinuing service on the PlayStation Blog. You can read the full announcement below.
“At SIE, we strive to provide the best entertainment experience for PlayStation fans, which means evolving our offerings as customer needs change. We have seen tremendous growth from PlayStation fans using subscription-based and ad-based entertainment streaming services on our consoles. With this change in customer behavior, we have decided to stop offering movie and TV purchases and rentals from the PlayStation Store as of August 31, 2021.
When this change takes effect, users can still access movie and TV content they purchased through PlayStation Store for on-demand playback on their PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. We thank our fans for their continued support and look forward to making the entertainment experience on PlayStation even better.“
Sony may abandon it since most people use streaming services like Netflix or Disney +.
