Sony makes PlayStations. It's also a huge movie and music production company. In 2012 the company offered the Sony Entertainment Network as a means of giving PlayStation owners something to watch and listen to that didn't involve a third-party like Netflix. It was also available in countries that competitors like Hulu didn't support.
That platform eventually turned into the PlayStation Network, with the video portion becoming PlayStation Video. Now an Android app has made its way into the Play Store that provides access to the same content.
With PlayStation Video, smartphone and tablet users can watch the same movies and TV shows they've purchased or rented from the PlayStation Store. You're also welcome to buy content directly from the app.
PlayStation Video is available in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK.
