SONY PICTURES CORE is an entertainment app for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles where you can rent, buy, or stream movies.

There are three ways to watch movies on SONY PICTURES CORE, but each begins with launching the app and creating an account.

Once signed into your account, you can select a movie, TV show, or other content by clicking on the artwork, and from there you will have the option to rent, buy or (in some cases) instantly stream the content:

  1. When renting a movie, you will have 30 days to initiate playback and 48 hours to finish the movie after pressing play.
  2. When buying a movie, it will be added to your Library, and you’ll be able to access that movie as many times as you like when signed into your account on SONY PICTURES CORE.
  3. If the movie is part of a streaming package included with a PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe subscription or other streaming offer, you will be able to watch (stream) at no additional cost.  

No, you don’t need to be a Plus member to buy or rent movies from SONY PICTURES CORE, but active PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe members will have access to exclusive benefits not available to everyone else.

It’s free to sign up for an account. Once you’ve created your account in the app, you can buy or rent movies. You may be eligible for additional content based on your active PS Plus Premium/Deluxe subscription.

Depending on the country in which you’ve created your account, you can choose from up to 2,000 Sony movies to buy or rent.  Availability varies by territory. 

You must be at least 18 years old, or the age by which you can legally enter into contracts under the law of your jurisdiction, to create an account, view content, and complete transactions on the app.
