As announced on the PlayStation Blog a couple of days ago, PS5 and PS4 owners have gotten the Sony Pictures Core app. The movie streaming app was previously called Bravia Pictures Core and was usually found on Sony Bravia TVs.
The Sony Pictures Core app contains about 2,000 movies that you can rent or buy straight from your PS5 or PS4 console. The app will also let users buy select Sony Pictures films during an exclusive early access window. The first film available for purchase during early access will be the Gran Turismo film. Buying the film will net you some credits to buy stuff in Gran Turismo 7, such as cars from the film.
PS Plus Premium Members Get Free Films
As an added bonus, PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers get a curated catalogue of up to 100 films to stream for free as part of your PS Plus Premium membership.
The movies available to Premium subscribers include such gems as District 9, Legion and many more. Sony recently bumped up the price of 12-month subscription plans for PlayStation Plus, so it seems that the free movies are a way to sweeten the deal.
How to get the Sony Pictures Core app on your PS5 or PS4
The Sony Pictures Core app is now available to download on both PS5 and PS4, here’s how to get the app on your console.
