It is come to light this week that Sony will soon be revoking access to purchased TV shows and movies by removing them from the PlayStation store. The removals will affect PlayStation owners throughout Austria and Germany according to legal documents posted to the regional sites and cover films produced by StudioCanal.
Unfortunately in this day and age we have come to expect movies and TV shows to be removed from streaming services that we have subscribed to. But removing individual purchased films, box sets and shows as a step in a different direction. Sony explains more on the official PlayStation website.
