The Japanese company feels that the explosive growth in subscription and ad-supported streaming services has reduced the need for the option to buy and rent internally.
You must turn to third-party services if you want to buy or rent video clips on PlayStation later this year.
Sony said: “Any movies and TV shows that you have purchased through the PlayStation Store will remain available through the PS4, PS5 and mobile devices after the end of August 31, and we look forward to further enhancing the entertainment experience through PlayStation.”
It is not certain to what extent the rental of TV shows and movies via the PlayStation Store has performed well, but there is no doubt that these offers have lost much of their significance since their launch in 2008.
Broadcasting services dominate, such as:NetflixAnd “Prime Video,” now on the online video scene, and those who want to buy or rent content can use third-party options, such as the “Apple TV” app.
