The PSN Store’s video side was full of promise when it launched. Unfortunately, some really dreadful download times, high cost and the arrival of services like Netflix meant that I haven’t looked at the Video Store in months.
I suppose there must be PlayStation 3 owners who love it but I don’t know any.
Well, it seems that Sony is ready to give it a little nudge in the right direction. The EU Blog has just announced that the PSN Video Store will now allow instant streaming of content as soon as you purchase. The streaming works in SD or HD and says it solves the problem of “hanging around watching loading bars” – which would be a nice philosophy for the rest of Sony to take into their patching and update systems for the next generation!
This might encourage me to take a little look back in the PSN Video Store, see what there is to offer and perhaps give it another chance. What about you?
