PlayStation may delete your purchased movies!

News culture PlayStation may delete your purchased movies!

We just learned that movies produced by Studio Canal will be removed from the PlayStation catalog, even for users who have purchased those movies!

You know her, The PlayStation Store catalog lets you purchase games and DLCbut also (until last year) from Rent or buy movies. Unfortunately, some go straight disappear from libraries

In March 2021, Sony confirmed that it has not removed your movies and series

in In March 2021, Sony confirmed the withdrawal from the VOD business. In fact, in a press release from Vanessa Lee, Head of Video at Sony Interactive Entertainment, we can read:

We’ve seen an exponential growth in PlayStation fans using subscription-based streaming entertainment services and ads on our consoles. With this change in customer behavior, we decided No longer showing purchases and rentals of movies and TV series through PlayStation Store as of August 31, 2021.

When this change takes effect, Users will still be able to access the movie and TV content they have purchased Via the PlayStation Store for on-demand playback on PS4, PS5 and their mobile devices.

March 2, 2021 Vanessa Lee, Head of Video at Sony Interactive Entertainment

If we can understand that Sony no longer wants to compete with streaming giants like Disney+ and Netflix, whose apps are available on PlayStation consoles, there is still a real problem now. The problem is that today we found out that the second part of this press release…turned out to be false!

In July 2022, Sony returns…

in Article published on PlayStation Germany playstation austria (In Germany and Austria, then), this is what we can read now:

Effective August 31, 2022, as our licensing agreements with content providers evolve, You will no longer be able to view previously purchased Studio Canal content and it will be deleted from your video library.

In fact, as of August 31, the PlayStation owners in Germany and Austria will watch all movies and series produced by Studio Canal simply and completely removed From their consoles! It will be impossible to download them again, so we understand that despite the purchase, Despite the money users spend, they will be deprived of their content. still represents More than 300 deleted content ! If this problem does not appear at the moment Only Germans and AustriansWe are entitled to imagine that this is possible Spread to other countries With the PlayStation Store, including France, therefore.

Above all, this raises the question again: Do we own our own digital content? In fact, Sony had Ensures that previously purchased content is not lostAnd we see that the Japanese company is now regressing. So we wonder Whether content purchased from Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play or Microsoft Store can be subject to the same treatment. Some countries have consumer protection systems in place, as in the US with Movies Anywhere, a free cloud movie storage service. Only, even this kind of protection has drawbacks, because even if Movies Anywhere allows you to store movies from Amazon, Apple, or Google, the service is owned by Walt Disney, so there are still special interests to consider. What is certain is that German and Austrian PlayStation Store users who own Studio Canal movies are entitled to feel cheated.
