Within these given hours, Sony could be currently planning to expand its PlayStation Plus service to include video content in the future and according to reports, this new model is called PlayStation Plus Video Pass.
Only last week we received the message that Sony, as a reaction to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, was interested in expanding its PlayStation Plus service. More specifically, an insider brought up a model at the time that could include PlayStation Now and Anime in addition to video games.
This rumor is now being fed back because according to a recent report from the site Video Games Chronicle a PlayStation Plus Video Pass logo has appeared on Sony’s Polish website.
This could now indicate that Sony is actually striving to expand its PlayStation Plus service in the future and actually make movie content available to subscribers. A description of the logo that you could find above these lines says: “A new benefit available for a limited time on PlayStation Plus… PS Plus Video Pass is a trial service active 22.04.21 – 22.04.22. The subscription benefit is available to PS Plus users in Poland.”
Based on the movie covers that can be seen next to the news, Sony seems to primarily want to offer films from its in-house Sony Pictures entertainment studios. For this purpose, in addition to the shown movie Bloodshot, Venom, and Zombieland: Double is better, works such as the current Spider-Man films, the Bad Boys series, or the adaptation of the novel Little Women would also be coming.
It is also conceivable that Sony Pictures Television’s own TV series, such as The Blacklist and Cobra Kai, as well as anime content from Sony’s VoD provider WAKANIM, including, for example, Demon Slayer or Sword Art Online, could be included in the service.
Furthermore, it is not clear whether this film service should be offered worldwide or only in selected regions. An official statement from Sony is currently pending in this regard.
