Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that they will no longer be offering sales and rentals for movies and TV series from the 31st of August 2021. Users that purchased movies or TV series will still be able to stream or download the content on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and mobile devices.

Here’s the statement from Sony Interactive Entertainment:

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 PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and mobile devices. We thank our fans for their continued support, and we look forward to further enhancing the entertainment experience on PlayStation.
