What Streaming Apps Are Available on PS5?
Last month, Sony announced that PlayStation 5 would launch with some of the top entertainment streaming services on the platform. The console launched on Nov. 12, though it quickly sold out at many locations.
Since the PS5 supports 4K HDR and Dolby Vision, you will be able to stream at the best quality these services support.
To make life easier for customers, the PS5 will also have designated game and media spaces. This allows customers to navigate quickly between Game or Media content with more ease. Within the Media space, users no longer need to download entertainment apps through PS Store, as they are all made available under that tab.
