Important News for PlayStation Now Subscribers February 15, 2017Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Very important breaking news for PlayStation Now subscribers. Sony has just announced they are discontinuing the PlayStation Now game streaming service on many of its platforms. That specifically means PlayStation Now support is being dropped for all PlayStation 3s, Sony Blu-Ray Disc Players, PlayStation Vitas, PlayStation TVs, and Samsung HDTVs as of August 2017. They will discontinue support for Sony Bravia HDTVs made in 2016 even sooner, those will be cut off as of April 2017.
Once your device has become discontinued from PlayStation Now support, unless you also own a PS4 or a PlayStation Now compliant PC, you won’t be able to actually use the PlayStation Now service even if you’re still paying for it. Sony says they will continue to automatically charge their customers for the service on a monthly basis unless the user disables the auto-renewal feature. If you don’t own a PC or PS4, I advise you to discontinue your subscription to the service as soon as possible.
