So when can we expect to see Crunchyroll on the ps4?

YAY !!!! we get ……

Vid-Zone.. :/


Hi! We will have some news about Portugal soon… Cant say just yet though. Watch this space :)

I’m so pleased both Lovefilm and Netflix made it for launch, and unlike the Xbox One we get the iPlayer! So much for it being the best media hub available!

Are these more than on xBox too? :-)

nice :) could do with a few more though… Flixter?


An additional 20+ apps will follow between now and Spring 2014. Keep watching the blog for more updates!


Need to get the SingStar app on PS4. It’s our goto party app!

I hate this only IGN, VidZone and Maxdome in Austria.

It´s not your fault Sony, but its so sad for us :(
Hate our local ORF


We continue to work hard to bring even more services to PS4 in the future

Big surprise, no Video Store for Ireland.

Fred, we were promised that this service would roll out to more regions by Andrew House back in 2009 and nothing has happened.

Will you share with the community the road-map for when this service will expand beyond six SCEE countries? You can’t keep leaving your consumers in the dark and expecting them to just except no information. It’s extremely poor customer service. Or at least admit that the Video Store will NEVER come to other countries. Show us some respect and be honest with us.

Thank you.


Sweden disappoints, yet again :(


Hello Sweden! Im glad to confirm that VidZone will be launching in Sweden on PS4. Apologies this was missed of the list!

VidZone will also be launching in France.

“Accept” no information, even.



Hi there. Although we dont have any news about YouTube, in the meantime it can be fully accessed via the PS4 Browser. Simply go to and press square for full screen. Works great!

As usual nothing for Poland :-(

What is with the entertainment services in Poland?! We are situated in Europe too!! …


Hi There, thanks for the feedback. We are working hard to bring even more services to Europe in the near future.


Netflix at launch for PS4, any chance we can see it on the Vita like the US have had for the last year?

Now, if only Sky GO would appear on the PS4, you have all my wishes fulfilled. ;-)

Im with you MrGarry. Disappointed there is still no Sky Go!

Any idea if Grece will get at least some of those applications at 13th of december ? ( ps4 first day for GR )

Jippie TuneIn ;D.

Maybe I am a little too early for asking this question. But can you use TuneIn while playing a game ?


More information about TuneIn will be available closer to its launch. Watch the blog for updates.

Wow I’m mighty please with lovefilm & Netflix it was reported that Netflix was not to be there at launch I’m so glad they were wrong must be a 11th hour deal then my iPad can use Netflix with. The ps3 so my iPad is the to toe control. :)

YOUTUBE… For everyone…. Please!


Hi there, we dont have any news for YouTube yet but in the meantime check out via the PS4 browser and press square for full screen. works great!


VidZone is the only thing I use on PS3. I’m glad to see it carry over to PS4. If I set up another TV I can use it on PS3 while I play PS4 and same other way around


We love VidZone here! Glad you like it

I’d really, really like to see YouTube.

I’m looking forward to ITV Player/4oD being available in the UK. iPlayer has always been so much better (and stable) than these 2 because it was a dedicated app…let’s hope they partner with Sony to make it happen this gen!

Why not Russia?


Hey… Were working hard across Europe to bring loads of cool Apps & Services to PS4. Watch this space!

* dam my iPad sometimes remote control. :/

Any news on Crunchyroll and Now TV for UK?

well we lose VidZone in France… <_<


I can confirm that VidZone will be launching in France at the same time as all other markets. Sorry for the mistake!

‘BBC Sport’ and ‘NOS Sport’. ‘Sport’ is both singular and plural.

Thanks for the list..great to see netflix. Pity NowTV, Blinkbox and possibly Flixster haven’t made it

… and that’s why it sucks to live on a fragmented continent with right holders calling dibs on their little corners.

What wouldn’t I give for Netflix. And in best case a Netflix enhanced by Hulu content. ;)

Ooooh yea! Looking forward to this! Netflix FTW :)


Glad you are happy :)


I wonder how long we have too wait for the youtube app because xbone has it, hope its not a long wait.

wish friday would hurry up :D

What a nice surprise yesterday to see 4 events in Poland for the PS4 lunch, more than any other country.

What a let down today to see not even a single app available in Poland. What a developing country I live in God damn.


I’d love to hear about the Apps & Services you would like to see in your countries!

to me IGN appp
vidzone app

rtbf app = 50% of contry speaks dutch no french ( so no use to dutch peopel in belgium ) do some deal with vrt to dutch peopel
stil missing = facebook – you tube .


I’d love to hear about the Apps & Services you would like to see in your countries!

Pretty pleased we are getting iPlayer and Netflix. Now I just need DLNA and to be able to use my PS3 bluetooth remote and I’ll be fully happy now :D


Is there some apps for Russia in the future? There is many PS fans lives in Russia. Don’t forget about us.

What about Flixter and Sky Go??

Hi Fred,

I can’t get answer from anyone on twitter or anywhere else but can I use the PS4 1.5 update from the US on my UK PS4? Or is there a EU version available somewhere?

I want to download the update early to save on waiting on Friday?!


YOUTUBE – come on, must we wait again for years?

YOUTUBE please

So remind me again why am I paying 420 euro for a console (priced like that in Poland) and not get any services and perks with it?

Pay more for half the value is it?



lol we just get on ps3 nowh them take away , xbox one get day 1 you tube .

No applications will be available in Russia? I’m disappointed. Very, very disappointed. =(


Hi there.. sorry to hear that :( We are working hard to bring more Apps in the future, so watch this space!


So, zero apps in Russia (thumbs up to guy from Poland above).
Sony, Sony never changes. The entire value of the console comes from the fact it’s region free.
Myself being interested in games only I still think PS4 should come with free towels in Russia. Sony spits in our faces so much they have to provide something to wipe it off.


Come on lads. Ireland is the highest concentration of PS4 preorders in the world. Get the RTE and the new TV3 Player on the console ASAP.

I am so happy that Vidzone and IGN are among the launch apps on PS4. Now PLEASE give us the Youtube app release date?????


HI there, we dont have any news Im afraid about YouTube but in the meantime give it a try via the PS4 Browser. and press square for full screen


This launch app list is a lot bigger than I expected (for the UK anyway).
Any idea if any of them will be available early? I noticed IGN, BBC iPlayer and music unlimited are already on the store for PS4, any chance more will be up when the store gets updated tomorrow? I Would like to add them to my download queue before I pick up my console.



Sorry for being off topic mate n I don’t want to sound ungrateful but do you know if they’ve sent over the codes for Tearaway from the debate yet? Just that I’ve not got mine n I’m DYING to play it! LOL

If Poland gets nothing cause of ZAiKS… I’m really angry then.
