Sony Playstation Video app

There is already plenty of choice in the video streaming app market, but today Sony is throwing its hat into the ring with the launch of its PlayStation Video app for Android. The app grants full access to the range of TV shows and Movies available through the service, which are available to rent as well as buy without the need for a subscription.

The major selling point of this app is probably that the service is tied into the same PlayStation Store that runs on Sony’s PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita consoles, as well as the company’s web store front. So if you purchase or rent a film on one device you will now also be able to access it from your Android phone or tablet too, and vice versa. This isn’t completely unique as steaming services tend to be quite universal, but it might appeal to the gamers out there.

Sony boasts that its video service offers many of the latest movie releases and popular TV shows. Its list includes Spectre, Crimon Peak, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones, which might make the service a winner if you’re looking to recap the story before the new season begins.

    Sadly, it’s only for Sony devices. Other Android users can’t really install this yet. I hope they release it soon so I can try it out on my G3! Otherwise, great idea!!!
