IGN published this video item, entitled “Sony Leaks Plan to Bring Movies to PlayStation Plus – IGN The Fix: Entertainment” – below is their description.
In today’s IGN The Fix Entertainment, Sony accidentally teases PlayStation Plus Video Pass, which is a service that could add movie and TV content to the existing PS Plus subscription service. The PS Plus Video Pass might turn out to be home to Sony’s own large movie portfolio and a way to add more value to PS Plus subscribers based in Poland. Would something like this encourage PS5/Playstation 4 gamers to watch more movies on their PlayStation? More importantly, could this be Sony’s answer to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass for both the PS4 and PS5? If you’re a PlayStation 5 owner, would you like to see something like the PlayStation Plus Video Pass? Are you excited for a PlayStation now? Playstation Now vs Xbox Game Pass, who you got?
In other entertainment news, you might remember back in March, when Netflix introduced an account authentication feature, where you had to verify your account via text or email. It included a warning that said, “If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching.” Well it seems Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings, says they’re going to be testing a few new things out at Netflix. During Netflix’s Investor Relations interview, Hastings said, “we will test many things, but we will never roll something out that feels like turning the screws… It has got to feel like it makes sense to consumers, that they understand.” What could this mean for your Netflix subscription? This is obviously an attempt to prevent Netflix password sharing
