PlayStation Network Video Content Update

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Apr 03, 2009 // Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

Hi Everyone,

By now, you’ve heard about the latest PS3 Firmware update (v2.70) that allows you to backup the movies and TV shows you purchase from PlayStation Store to an external storage device, so you can make room on your hard drive and restore the videos any time in the future. Also, the videos you purchase for the PSP can now be transferred to the PS3 for playback.

Here are this week’s updates to the video store. We also wanted to share with you a short clip from Krod Mandoon, a show that debuts on Comedy Central next Thursday, April 9. It will be available for purchase on PlayStation Store the following day.

Saddle up with reluctant hero Krod Mandoon and his band of inept freedom fighters as they battle an evil warlord—and their own incompetence—in Comedy Central’s epically outrageous fantasy series.

This week we’ve added the following new HD movies:

  • Extreme Movie
  • Soul Men

well i feel the reason for no canadian video content, cause we have less piracy laws and it is easy as waking up and checking ur email and u can have all these videos downloaded. i don’t state this to condone it, but that is a real good theory why no canadian video content. but being a candian i have to say i would purchase video files just for the convenice and quality, I put $25 everyu paycheck on my psn and their is always left over change i spend on things i don’t use like playstationeye aquarim, but i would love to spend that on new episodes of television shows, so to continue the canadian beg, Please sony give canada video downloads

@98

Those are ‘classics’?

@100

Doesn’t seem to stop MS and Apple. I’m sure SONY is working on it and it would be nice if the SENIOR MANAGER of the PlayStation Store would take the time to help her neighbours to the North by directing them to the proper SONY Canada contact. If she is too busy, I’d assume that a MANAGER has staff that she manages and perhaps one of them could take the time.

Jeff sets such a good example for communication on this blog that it is truly astounding that there is zero communications on the weekly video and psn content posts. Jeff…I work for peanuts…I’ll moderate the two posts if you’d like!

Hi Grace,

Thanks for the update – I always look forward to seeing what the new movies & tv series are.

Say – I have a question. You mention this “Also, the videos you purchase for the PSP can now be transferred to the PS3 for playback.”

Can you elaborate on this a little? I played around my PSP & PS3 and couldn’t figure this out.

Cheers,
Paul

These are the main things I would like added to the Playstation Store:

1). HD movies to own instead of just to rent on Playstation Store!

2). PS2 games for download for those of us that have backwards compatability!

@106 YODA798907: 1). HD movies to own instead of just to rent on Playstation Store!

That might be a studio thing. Some of the latest video releases – like “Zach & Miri make…” and “Extreme Movie” have HD purchase options.

Cheers,
Paul

What happened to the new Incredible Hulk movie? It was there last week and then I went to download it this week for the kids and it is gone? What’s up with that?

Wow. I was waiting to see if ANYONE was complaining about NAS media servers not working with this new Firmware update, but I guess it’s only limited to the forums?

SONY: I’m from Canada. I don’t want any movies. Just more good video game downloads.

When will you be releasing PLAYTV to the United States? I have cable and just need the PlayTV box to get the digital video recorder functionality. I would buy a second Playstation 3 (for my bedroom) if PlayTV were around.

I would much rather buy PlayTV rather than a Tivo, Windows Media Center PC, or something of the sort.

Thank You,

Please read and let me know if any of this is possible or even taken into consideration for the next firmware update:

1). The ability to use the In Game XMB for PS1,PS2, DVD and Blu Ray titles!

2). The ability to own not just rent HD movies on the Playstation Store! Hopefully its not a studio thing.

3). The ability for PSN to leave the purchased symbol on movies (like you do on the games we purchased) we already own so I dont have to buy that movie again, I can just redownload it. Just in case I upgrade my Hard Drive and run into problems!

4). The ability to have more options to choose from on the Visual Player not just the current 3!

5). In Game Chat with a highlight option to select which friend or friends you want to talk to and be able to talk to them no matter if there in Home or another game (through the headset)!

Thanx

DO YOU LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS?

I am mostly using the PS3 to stream video from my network. Everything was peachy until release 2.70. Now nothing works. Hopefully it is something that can be patched up in short order. If it was done by design then you are bigger morons than I thought. I know many people that use the PS3 to stream video content just like I do and I imagine they feel the same way. So you can expect an onslaught of PS3s on eBay if you don’t fix this soon. Idiots.
