    I'm glad I never bought into that service only for it to come to an end.

    Plex is available on PS4 and PS5. Just put your movies on there and don't deal with having your videos locked into a service. Plex's player is proprietary but you control the actual video files, with no DRM.

    Multiplatform too so you don’t really need to worry about file types. Just point to your media folder and go

    nothing beats picking up a disc and putting in into my UHD and play it anytime i want without no fears of not ever being able to watch it. you can keep your digital and streaming BS :creep:

    Disc rot, bruv. Nothing is permanent. Your best bet is indeed buying physical media, but also creating a digital backup of it.

    I have a few things I grabbed on sale but I don't go out of my way for it since I have both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video anyway.

    It's probably going to be revamped as an alternate service, altogether. Sony isn't out of the streaming business entirely, but it seems that stuff like Playstation Vue are going away to make room for something new.

    ...Maybe? I dunno. Just guessing.

    I rarely watched the same movie or tv show twice, so it doesn't make sense to buy any movie. streaming subscription is the future.

    plex is in control and it's not totally open source. To watch things over the internet, you need a plex account, for some devices you need to pay. Having media on storage that I own, I want to be in control. relying on plex... I'd rather not.
    I do use the plex app on my tv though sometimes, free and it works ok.
    Specific to the PS4, I've read the plex app isn't that great. I only used it briefly so can't give much input on that myself.

    There's emby which looks interesting, and then the newest contender, jellyfin, which is totally free.

    I know on my Xbox Series X, the quality of the videos purchased on the Microsoft store far exceeds the streamed editions. Better video and audio quality, longer cuts etc. It guarantees that you will have access to it should the streaming service lose the rights (Full Metal Alchemist). So I purchase most of my anime. I think Microsoft cripples the apps, but I cannot blame them. It is a pretty business savvy move.

    Nintendo is eating their lunch in Japan, has been for a long time. Playstation is almost dead there, only looks good when compared to xbox which barely even exists there.

    People seem to think physical disks are magical and give you some sort of ownership of more than just a license that is attached to a disk...

    Depends on the service, some streaming services are certainly lower quality than others. I would have to rip the files from multiple places to tell you the difference.
