Crap! I wish Canada didn’t have these stupid laws. I hope we’re able to get a video store soon.

Great news for the PSN! I eagerly await the day that the PSN Video Store is available to Canada. I am certain you are working on it, so I am not complaining; just anticipating.

This is great news from Sony and NBC!!! Can’t wait to view 30 Rock, Heroes, and The Office episodes. Hopefully they have previous seasons so that I can catch up on the stuff I missed!

Well PSN just got one of the best shows…ever! Seriously though, The Office is pure gold.

About time these guys supported the PSN. The bias needs to end!

Niiiice! Battlestar Galactica in HD is awesome.


Thank you. :)

this should shut some of those 360 fanboys up. Now hows about some Netflix or Blockbuster Streaming??

EvoAnubis said:

“Hey…is it just me, or are our PSN Avatars MIA?”

Whoa . . . no, it’s not just you. I didn’t notice it until you mentioned it, but you’re right.

EvoAnubis said:

March 10th, 10:26 am

And it’s not just in this post, but everywhere. What’s going on?

unstablefears said:

March 10th, 10:29 am

Wish Canada had the video store, hope it’s coming soon!

“You’ve been asking for it, and now we have it” We’ve also been asking for CROSS GAME CHAT! Still no sign of that

Enforcer_X said:

March 10th, 10:31 am

The only thing that would make this announcement better would be to offer DRM Free video in 1080p HD and Surround Sound!

Otherwise keep the content coming in.

dapper said:

March 10th, 10:32 am

I sure hope the TV shows are free like on and Hulu. Don’t try to charge us for something we can already get for free, please.

I have ONE thing to say to this post.

The dude abides.

SWiPPER said:

March 10th, 10:35 am

yeah CANADA really needs this service…. I really hope it won’t be much longer as it’s already been way overdue

March 10th, 10:37 am

wow! who need streaming/renting companies when you have this? thank you psn for letting me keep my favorite movies instead of renting them and I can even transfer them in seconds for psp viewing on the go.

Whoah! I didn’t think iTunes even had NBC content!

Merilya said:

March 10th, 10:39 am

very nice, but what about germany? Why cant u make this aviable for german users :( . Im a big fan of SciFi Channel Series like Battlestar Galactica, and i love watching them in english because imo movies should be watched in the language they are made in (hate german sync <.<) .
Why cant you let me buy em on my ps3 :( , importing the dvd´s always takes so long ^^

Any news on when this is coming to the UK, or is it never.

fan1310 said:

March 10th, 10:40 am

Would be great, if it was available outside the US!

tirminyl said:

March 10th, 10:41 am

Nice. Any plans to add a subscription service for tv shows or a purchase season option?

StalkingSilence said:

March 10th, 10:41 am

You already had Chuck, which was weird since you didn’t have NBC support. But the addition of The Office is great. I have all seasons on DVD already.

In related Universal Pictures news, Role Models was pre-ordered from Amazon on Blu-ray and shipped yesterday.

haran_elessar said:

March 10th, 10:41 am

woohoo Battlestar Galactica in HD…awesome. It would be great if prices were more reasonable, as it is I could buy a Blu-Ray in amazon for around the same price or even less. A special price for those of us interested in downloading a whole season in HD…that would be great.

keep it up!

March 10th, 10:44 am

and when is the video store coming to Canada???

NDC89 said:

March 10th, 10:46 am

ummmmm how bout you have the service in canada before making improvements…

teflon14 said:

March 10th, 10:48 am

Would someone be kind enough to explain why I would want to pay to d/l shows that are already available on their respective network sites for free?


dehumanizer_666 said:

March 10th, 10:48 am

once again Canada misses out….

Amnesia said:

March 10th, 10:48 am

It’s good to see that you’re adding more TV shows in HD. I could easily imagine using the PS Store to rent an episode of a show that I’ve missed, but only if I get to watch it in HD…

Ftwrthtx said:

March 10th, 10:49 am

Will the TV episodes be free? We can access most of them from our PC for free.

islandfellow2 said:

March 10th, 10:53 am

I like the PSN video store, but the one thing that keeps me away is Netflix. The PSN store with a monthly “all you can eat” subscription, and Netflix is history….for me.
