Sony has announced today changes will be made later this year to the compatible and supported devices for its PlayStation Now subscription service.
On August 15th, 2017 Sony will be discontinuing the Now service for a number of PlayStation devices and third party hardware including the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, all 2013, 2014, 2015 Sony Bravia TV models, all Sony Blu-ray player models and all Samsung TV models.
In addition to the already listed hardware Sony will also be discontinuing the PlayStation Now service on all the 2016 models of its Sony Bravia TV from April 1st, 2017 onwards. Brian Dunn Senior Marketing Manager, PlayStation Now explains a little more about the decision to remove support from these devices.
After thoughtful consideration, we decided to shift our focus and resources to PS4 and Windows PC to further develop and improve the user experience on these two devices. This move puts us in the best position to grow the service even further. If you use any of the above devices, we want to give our heartfelt thanks for your support, and we hope you’ll continue with us. Remember that all of your PS Now cloud game saves can easily be accessed on both PS4 and Windows PC.
If you do not wish to continue your subscription, please remember to disable auto-renewal in your account settings so that your subscription ends by April 1, 2017 on 2016 Sony Bravia TVs, and August 15, 2017 on all other devices. For 3 months subscribers, depending on when you joined the service, your subscription may auto-renew a month or two before the service discontinuation date if you do not turn it off.
