In a new leak it has emerged that Sony will soon announce PlayStation Plus Video Pass, which will offer streaming video content to subscribers. Current PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive the service for free for at least a year.
A logo was accidentally posted on a Sony website, and promised access to Sony movies like Bloodshot, Venom, and Zombieland: Double Tap. It would make sense that Sony plans to launch it soon, as they have previously announced they will be shutting down the sale of shows and movies through the PlayStation Store on August 31st this year.
Since the leak, Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that PlayStation Plus Video Pass is a “test service” launching in Poland. “A new benefit available for a limited time on PlayStation Plus… PS Plus Video Pass is a trial service active 22.04.21 – 22.04.22. The subscription benefit is available to PS Plus users in Poland.”
It isn’t clear if or when Sony intends to release the service in other areas of the world.
Sony already makes other streaming services available through apps on its PS4 and PS5 consoles, like Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+ and more.
