PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers are getting a cool little bonus with the ability to stream movies for free. Announced today, Sony is bringing over its Bravia Core movie app to the PS4 and PS5 consoles, and the app is being re-branded to Sony Pictures Core. The app will be the home base for early access to movies from the Sony Pictures studio. With the ability to purchase movies on demand right on both consoles.
Additionally, subscribers will have the ability to stream up to 100 movies from the Sony Pictures catalog at no extra cost. These will be curated and will change from time to time so things will stay fresh. And all of it is included with the Premium membership. You can also buy or rent over 2,000 movies from the catalog. This will also include more recent blockbuster titles like Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Uncharted and more.
PlayStation Plus Premium movies are available starting October 5
If you already subscribe to the Premium plan or you upgrade to it, you can access the free movies immediately. As the Sony Pictures Core app is already available to install on your console. With up to 100 curated movies in the app you can stream for free there’s bound to be something you’ll find intriguing enough to watch. Some of the titles include Premium Rush, Looper, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, Resident Evil Damnation, Elysium, and more.
There’s quite a few old movies included as well but many of them are classics and worth a watch. PlayStation Plus Premium also now costs $160 for an annual plan. So the addition of this new app as a perk with free movies adds a little more value with the price increase. It’s not likely to sway people to subscribe if they haven’t already. But for those that already are, it’s a definitely a bonus.
