Forums - Sony Discussion - PS Plus Video Pass incoming?

Sony looks set to announce ‘PlayStation Plus Video Pass’ | VGC (videogameschronicle.com)

Seems like it will be announced in the next hour (I guess).

Seems to include the video selection from Bravia Core (a feature on the new 2021 Bravia TV Line)

Will be a free trial with PS + for 1 year.

(will update with an official announcement if it happens)

I'm down for this. Would love to see Sony include Funimation/Crunchyroll with this.

With the amount of content that Sony has, from both their films and animation companies/acquisitions this could be an attractive concept - if priced competitively! I am due to renew my PS Plus membership in June so could be something to trial...

I still expect that Sony will look to combine their PS Plus/PS Now and this Video Pass into one ongoing cost in order to compete with Games Pass

The Crunchyroll acquisition went through? I thought it was halted.

Here comes Don Matrix of Playstation... consoles are meant for gaming.. not watching movies.



TVTVTV done right!

Sony increasing the value proposition for PS+/PS Now with their entertainment pillars is the smart thing to do even if this is just a trial period. Eventually, if it isn't already, the majority of people will consume movies through a subscription. However, a Sony Pictures subscription service would pale in comparison to other streaming services like Netflix or Disney+, so it might as well be used to prop up the value proposition offered for Now/Plus. I can see this being part of a higher tier of PS+, that will include a revamped PS Now, and other benefits. I hope Sony doesn't justify a price hike for PS+ with PS Plus Video Pass though lol.

How is that the case if this is another feature added to PS+?
