PlayStation Now on PC

How to set up PS Now

  1. Click here to download the PS Now on PC app.
  2. Install the app and any support software and drivers by following the onscreen prompts.
  3. Start the app and browse as a guest, create an account or sign in with your existing account.
  4. Connect a compatible controller to your PC via USB*. You can browse PS Now using a controller or keyboard/mouse, but you need a compatible controller to play. Sign up for a free trial (you are only eligible for a free trial if you’ve never tried PS Now before), or, if you’re not eligible for a free trial, sign up for a paid-for PS Now subscription.  

Note: PS Now subscriptions are ongoing subscriptions with a recurring monthly subscription fee. If you do not cancel your PS Now subscription prior to the end of the free trial period, it will renew into a paid-for ongoing subscription on that basis. Find out more important information about the terms of PS Now or learn how to cancel your subscription.

  1. Link your credit/debit card or PayPal account. If you do not have sufficient funds in your wallet to pay the recurring monthly subscription fee, the required balance will be debited from the default payment method linked to your account.
  2. Choose a game and get playing!

* Connection via USB is usually required for any controller type, but you can sometimes connect controllers via Bluetooth if you can install a compatible third party driver. However, we cannot guarantee continued compatibility as these drivers are not SIE software and therefore are not supported by SIE.
