Angry Why is there no PS Entertainment Movies in SG ?

Hi there,

How come I can't access Playstation Movies/TV in Singapore?

Is it a region limitation?

Netflix has limited 4K content, and there are no other video apps.

Yah, we are only small market so Sony think not worth the time, money and effort. It's not like ps vue is doing exceptionally well in the US either.

Haha, Singapore is Region 3.

The game region coding system denotes a pecking order in terms of good stuff. What do you expect from Region 3?

R1 is king, R2 is lord and R3 is peasant.

On the bright side, R3 is still better than Australia/NZ or South America.

A lot of ppl are casual gamers only. They spend so much money to buy PS4, VR, Switch etc, play a bit then leave there collect dust. If can play movie then at least don't need to put additional box and can get more use out of the PS4.

Ps4 in build got blue ray and is much better then those normal blue ray player brand.

I sometimes order blue ray jav disc online and watch or order ship to singapore =) but need to verify identical at singpost if collect, and after the newest update you can use a external HDD portable will be good and you can store many many high definition 1080p video, as ps4 media player in build codes mostly support all type of files, so mainly I use them as a Jav player.
