Sony will remove movies purchased from the PlayStation Store

It was March 2021 when Sony announced that the playstation store would stop selling or renting movies and TV series due to the popularity of streaming services like Netflix. However, Sony promised that users could continue to access movies purchased on PS4, PS5 and mobile devices. Now it looks like he broke his promiseas is deletion movies purchased by users.

Sony closed its section of films and series to rent or buy more than a year ago, specifying that its customers could keep those they bought. However, sony violated these words, as it confirmed that users will lose access to these, as published on the PlayStation web pages of Germany Yes Austria. It appears to affect titles distributed by studio chain and then it will happen August 31.

Digital content is not ours as long as there is a platform behind it

This is something that confirms the decision made by Sony and will affect the German and Austrian users. And it is that, buying something digitally and then having it stored beyond our reach, can be a mistake. With the latter, we refer as not to purchased content stored on a platform and not on our own device, computer or hard drive. This is something that should be implemented across all content services and platforms.

When purchasing a digital product, you must give yourself the possibility to download and thus be able to save it wherever you want. But of course we are talking about possible cases of piracy, which would further fuel the popularity and content of this sector. Even so, we also don’t consider it okay to be a slave to the decisions they make, as is the case with Sony and movies on the PlayStation Store. Moreover, the company itself has not announced its intention to refund your customers for films or series purchased from the PlayStation Store.

Here is the list of movies and series that will be removed from the PlayStation Store

Even so, we cannot exclude that Sony imposes it in other countries such as Spain in a future.
