PSN Video Store Can’t Come to Canada Soon Enuf! |

Sony’s planning to bring the PSN video store to Canada, and I can’t wait.

I recently stopped my Canflix subscription (it’s like Netflix in the States). The service was too slow and I’m having problems with Canada Post eating my movies and Canflix blaming it on me. I had the same problem with Sheesh.

So now I don’t have a source of a wide range of easily procured movies. I’m a lazy sort and don’t want to go to the local Rogers. And besides, their selection isn’t all that good anyway.

But I read recently about one guy’s effort to rent the movie “21”. He said that there wasn’t any rental option, only purchase. Do any of you in the States have comments as to how many movies are rentals versus buys versus both? HD versus SD? 5.1 surround versus stereo?

Because I’m personally wanting to:

1) Rent, not buy.
2) HD, not crappy SD.
3) In full surround sound, because I have a surround sound system!

Observations, anyone?

    I haven’t taken the time to compare how much is there to buy vs rent, but I have seen a few movies that you can only buy. I don’t think ANYTHING is in 5.1, it’s all stereo. The PS3 upscales the SD, so it doesn’t look horrible. My bottom line is that I’m sticking with Blockbuster online. Unless Sony integrates BB with their store and ups the audio ante, I’ll keep getting Blu-Rays mailed to me and from the store in full surround sound.

  • German… so no go for me for being from the wrong country (talk of “racism”^^)

    I just hope, when the start the store over here, we get a) movies up to 16 (not just 12, like the stuff on PSN is now) and b) PLEASE let me choose the language… I never watch anything dubbed…

  • Henning ya idjit- you had me thinking maybe there was something announced about it finally coming to Canada when I seen the headline in Google Reader! :p Not that I’d be making use of it that often (hardly any time to watch the various DVDs/ Blu-Rays I have now) but it would be nice to have the option.
