Sony is closing down the film and TV show sections of its PlayStation Store soon

Through the PlayStation blog, Sony has announced that you won’t be able to buy or rent films and TV shows from their Store. Any content that people have already bought will still be available for purchase, but you won’t be able to buy anything else. Vanessa Lee, the head of Video Business at SIE, stated:

At SIE, we strive to provide the best entertainment experience for PlayStation fans, and that means evolving our offerings as customer needs change. We’ve seen tremendous growth from PlayStation fans using subscription-based and ad-based entertainment streaming services on our consoles.

With this shift in customer behavior, we have decided to no longer offer movie and TV purchases and rentals through PlayStation Store as of August 31, 2021.

This decision honestly isn’t bad at all, as subscription services for stuff like movies are always better than just buying them one by one. That’s why Sony is closing down the film and TV show sections on August 31st.
