It our broadcast laws in Canada that are the hurdle here. You need to have a certain minimum of Canadian content (including a seperate requirement for french language content) on a service for it to be legally available in Canada. Hopefully Sony can work something out here like MS managed.

If they're hung up on broadcast rules, all they have to do is not allow streaming, just downloads.  Then they wouldn't fall under those regs, it would just be blockbuster online basically.

Another statement that points out the importance of the PSN-VIdeo Store (The Playstation 3 is a Family orientated Entertainment Console)!

It would sure be nice if Sony advertised the fact that the movies are  not  available in Canada !!!!   Does this also account for the fact that they don't show up on my ps store menu?  Is there some issue with the full new games???  I don't have either.    thanx

K i live in western Canada so all this stuff about french videos doesn't get through to me.  In Vancouver french is like a 6th or 7th language after various forms f chinese english and hindu and spanish.   French language doesn't exsist out here.
