The PS5 media remote. While all four of the services at the bottom there will be available on launch day, some other PS4 video services will not.
It seems that many of the video-streaming apps on the PS4 won’t be available on the PlayStation 5 at launch. That’s a marked contrast to the Xbox Series X, where media apps designed for the Xbox One work seamlessly on the new hardware.
In a blog post this morning, Sony listed “some of the entertainment apps scheduled to hit the PS5 console on day one.” Those include:
- Apple TV (new to Sony consoles, and also coming to PS4)
The post also lists a few “additional streaming apps” that are simply “coming to PS5” with no mention of timing, including Amazon Prime Video, MyCanal, Hulu, Peacock “and more.” While the wording is a little vague, the implication seems clear that these apps, and others not listed, are part of the promised “more apps to come in the future” and are not expected to be ready for the PS5’s Nov. 12 launch. (Sony has yet to respond to a request for comment from Ars Technica.)
