Sony Bravia Core, the video streaming service offering movie purchases and rentals at up to 80Mbps bandwidth speeds, has now launched as its own app on Sony PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles, where it will now be known as Sony Pictures Core and can be freely downloaded via media section on PS5 console and PS Store for PS4.
If you haven’t heard of Sony Bravia Core before now, chances are it was because only select Sony TVs and devices had access to it. As of April 2016, however, that will change gradually to Sony Pictures Core to better represent one of its major differentiators from streaming competitors: Subscribers can purchase certain Sony Pictures movies early through an early access window before other platforms. Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story will make its first early access debut here (it has already arrived here in the US).
Videophiles will surely appreciate Sony Pictures Core when it launches on Sony console, as its high data rate streaming capabilities differentiates it from streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.
Netflix 4K HDR titles only need 25Mbps connectivity to operate at maximum quality levels; Sony Picture Core can more than triple that bandwidth up to 80Mbps compared to 50 GB 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc’s 72 or 92 Mbps data rates; Kaleidescape can offer even higher data rates but requires separate hardware, thus not running on consoles like PS4 or PS5.
Sony Pictures Core offers a much narrower selection of movies. Although only 2,000 titles exist within its library currently, notable releases like Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse and No Way Home have made an impression – unresolved issues, equalizer concerns, don’t feel bad bullet train and Ghostbusters Afterlife among others can all be found there.
PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe members gain access to over 100 movies that they can stream ad-free and on demand without paying, such as Looper, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV NandanAnd resident evil damn, among many more titles.
PlayStation Video goes beyond simply providing movie viewing pleasure: users can also unlock bonus features like behind-the-scenes footage and deleted scenes to make their experience truly interactive and captivating.
Sony Pictures Core allows cross-platform viewing, so that if you start watching a film on PS4 or PS5, for example, then seamlessly switch over to another device like smartphone or tablet – adding convenience and flexibility to the overall streaming experience.
One downside of Sony Pictures Core, however, is that it does not provide access to live television channels or sports events – meaning this service may not meet all your streaming needs if they include both movies and live TV events.
Sony Pictures Core may boast a smaller library compared to other streaming services, but its unique content and special features make it worthwhile for movie enthusiasts. Furthermore, as Sony Pictures Core’s selection continues to increase over time there’s always something exciting new or unique to watch on this platform – give it a go and witness first-hand why Sony Pictures Core has gained so much traction among movie enthusiasts worldwide!
