Recently we’ve learned that the creator of PS5, Sony, is testing a new streaming service called PlayStation Plus Video Pass. Consumer habits change over time, forcing companies to modify their service offerings to meet current demand. In this regard, Sony is testing an alternative to the PlayStation Store, the online store through which PlayStation console users can purchase and rent movies and TV shows, which will cease to operate on August 31.
In this regard, we have learned that Sony is testing a Netflix-like service in Poland according to a leak. Then, it has just been officially confirmed by the company itself.
PlayStation Plus Video Pass is in the testing phase
PlayStation Plus Video Pass will come for PS4 and PS5 console users who have an active PS Plus subscription at no additional cost. For starters, the service will have 15 movies and six TV shows from Sony Pictures.
Sony relied on specific data for the choice of Poland as the location for the test of its new service but we are almost sure that they will test this service in some other countries as well.
Sony is betting on a new streaming platform
The company wants to know which titles are most viewed. Sony has the advantage of having a huge catalog of movies and TV shows.
In addition, very recently, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Netflix signed an agreement, valued at more than one billion dollars, according to specialized media, whereby the movies that Sony releases in theaters in 2022, will subsequently become part of Netflix’s catalog.
