Yesterday information started circulating that Sony was testing a great new feature for its users and now the company has made it official, confirming that the test has already started in Poland, a revelation made to the website Spider’s Web, from Poland.

Sony was already testing a new PlayStation video streaming service, and now it has confirmed that this is indeed the case. According to the information, the PlayStation Plus Video Pass will allow users to stream TV shows and movies on a PS4 or PS5. In the current testing phase, the service is limited to only 21 titles, but the library will be updated quarterly.

“We want to see how players benefit from this service,” said Nick Maguire, vice president of global services at SIE, to the Polish website Spider’s Web. “What titles they watch, what they care about, how often they use them.” The service will come as part of the PlayStation Plus at no additional cost, which is excellent news for current subscribers to the service, as well as it will certainly add more interest to this service.

Sony is undoubtedly interested in capitalizing on the explosion in streaming video that happened recently. With services like Netflix and Disney + gaining huge numbers of subscribers recently, Sony clearly wants a piece to take advantage and gain market share in this “new” segment.

You already own the rights to many films through Sony Pictures and many animes thanks to your recent purchase from Funimation and Crunchyroll. It also recently launched a high-tech video streaming compatible with 4K and HDR, called Sony Bravia Core, which offers “the world’s largest selection of IMAX Enhanced films and the latest box office releases from Sony Pictures”.
