In another move to break away from video and focus on gaming,
PlayStation announced in a blog post Tuesday that it will no longer offer movie
and TV purchases and rentals through the PlayStation Store beginning August 31,
PlayStation notes that the move is being made based on a “shift
in consumer behavior” toward subscribing to streaming services to watch
content, rather than renting and buying titles directly through the PlayStation
Titles that have already been purchased will still be
available on users’ 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,” the
company shared in the blog post.
