Do NOT purchase movies on PSN! Thay are one time downloads.

24 replies 617 views Edited Nov 14, 2012

I just found out that movies that you purchase in the PSN Store are one time only.  I would not suggest anyone to purchase any movies from the PSN Store.  Amazon instant video would be a better option since it is always available to you after purchase.

Transfer the video and keep the file safe.

The problem with that is one would  need an external hard drive for that .  Point of purchaseing on PSN Store  is to have access without the need for physical media .

I know, I found out the hard way, but I continued to do it anyway when I was catching up on the The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. Movies on the other hand, I will never purchase until they either lower the price or allow more than 1 download. I would say that the movie is yours to own and therefore should be able to download it as many times as you like, but I can understand piracy would be a problem.

This is also why everyone needs to read the fine print. Unfortunately, a lot of us don't think to do it.

I recommend Amazon, also. PSN is only good for renting or viewing the trailers.

If I really love a movie I will buy it on blu ray..other wise I have netflix and will rent sometimes on the PSN if I dont want to wait for my netflix movie.

 

Also some movies on the PSN are buy only..Sony you really need to give us both options.i am not going to buy only rent.

Yeah I had this problem. I replaced an HDD so I can have more space. Needless to say movies like Avatar are gone for good. Bad move Sony but I still loved the old store.

Sayinf it's a one time download, does that mean if I buy for example the season 1 through 3 of The Walking Dead on my ps3, I can't download them on my Vita?

You can't download them again, but you can copy it from the PS3 to the Vita.
