If you didn't already know, Sony's PlayStation isn't just a powerful gaming console: it's also a media player that can host music apps like Spotify, livestream apps like Twitch, and perhaps most notably, streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney+. And it makes sense for the console to be an all-around entertainment hotspot. After all, it's built to support 4k and crisp surround sound, which is basically all you need for the ultimate TV and movie viewing experience.
Now, if did already know all that, what you might be surprised to learn is that PlayStations are fully equipped to host not just on-demand streaming platforms, but also live TV streaming services like Sling TV, sports services like ESPN+, and specialty streaming services like Crunchyroll and CurioistyStream. In fact, it's not uncommon to find PlayStations listed under the "compatible devices" sections of most, if not all, streaming services. Sony also recently set up what it calls "Sony Pictures Core," a storefront that allows you to rent theatrical releases and watch them on the console, just in case whatever title you're looking to watch isn't available on streaming platforms yet.
At the time of this writing, we found more than 30 noteworthy services that can be downloaded on this device, so if you're interested, read on to learn all about the best streaming services on PlayStation below.
