There are some movies on the new PlayStation app not yet available on any other streaming service.

Happy days for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners, as all of you now have early access to some of the biggest movies coming out of Hollywood in the past few weeks, months and years, while some of you will be getting FREE access to 100s of movies right now and in the coming weeks and months.

This is all off the back of the new Sony Pictures Core app, which was previously called the Bravia Core app, and was only available on Sony Bravia television sets. The official statement from PlayStation about the new movie access is as follows:

“Our friends at Sony Pictures Entertainment produce a lot of fantastic films, and today, I’m pleased to tell you about our new collaboration to provide the PlayStation community with access to some of these memorable movies on PS5 and PS4 consoles.


The Sony Pictures Core app on the PlayStation 5

Once you sign up for Sony Pictures Core app on your PS4 or PS5, you will be able to buy or rent up to 2,000 movies straight from your console. At launch, this will include blockbuster hits such as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Uncharted, The Equalizer, No Hard Feelings, Bullet Train, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, among others.”

While those movies above are available for rent or purchase, certain PlayStation users will have have free access to LOADS of other great movies, as the official statement continues:

“If you’re a PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe member, you’ll get access to a curated catalog of up to 100 movies, through the Sony Pictures Core app to stream on demand from the Sony Pictures library as part of your membership. The catalog, which will be ad-free and updated periodically, features movies such as Looper, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, Elysium, and Resident Evil Damnation. There will also be additional benefits for all PlayStation Plus members, so stay tuned for more details.”

It should be noted that the rollout for the Sony Pictures Core app has only begun this week, and at the time of writing, only available in 22 markets (including Ireland and the UK), so you’ll need to check your PlayStation apps store to see if it is available for you yet.
