For awhile before Amazon's video app was released on PS3, but even then I think I maybe rented like 12 movies

I've never rented a movie online... I actually want a movie, I buy the disc.

I only buy movies that I can't find a hard copy of.

I've actually used PS Video a handful of with no problem, mosty on my TV's PS Video app though because I have a Sony TV. It's nice to be able to have it on the TV, PS4, phone, and PC (plus being able to use leftover funds on the PSN Account towards rentals is convienent). Although in most instances I have rented rather than buying, usually I'll buy a movie on disc because Blu-Ray will always look better due to a higher bit-rate.

 

However if I absolutely can't find the movie on disc then I have rented or bought movies on PS Video. While it doesn't look quite as good as Blu-Ray, it still looks fine, and it doesn't really matter much if I'm watching on another device outside my TV as my TV is the only 4K monitor I have, everything else is 1080p like my PC monitor or my phone. I really would like for PS Video to start offering UHD versions of videos. Sony does have a UHD video service but it's completely seperate from PlayStation Video and I don't want to bother with a whole new platform just for that.

 

On a side note, I actually liked the PS Originals show Powers. It was slow to start but by the end it wasn't half bad. Unfortunately, it wasn't renewed for a 3rd season.

Not  really. I don't buy or rent movies/TV shows from XBL either. Because I use Netflix and Hulu instead.
