It’s not quite a delisted games marketplace but since the PlayStation Video service has been available on every Sony console and handheld since 2010 (not to mention that PlayStation is right in the name), I wanted to share the news. As of August 31st, 2021 Sony will be shutting down its movie and TV storefront on PlayStation 3, 4, and 5, Android and iOS devices, and any Sony TVs, phones, tablets, and blu-ray players still able to get online.
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.
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.
I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar but I’m not planning on adding a page to the site right now. So far I’ve kept apps and streaming services to the news section.
