PlayStation 5 will have Disney+, Netflix, Spotify & YouTube apps

25 Sep 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony has yet to reveal the revamped PlayStation 5 user interface but we now know that the console will have Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube apps – probably others too.

PS5 as a media hub

After Microsoft's missteps with Xbox One that was originally pitched as part game console, part media hub, Sony and Microsoft have both promoted PS5 and Xbox Series X/S as game consoles first and foremost. Xbox Series X/S will come with the same refreshed user interface as Xbox One, so there is little question about its role as a media hub for streaming entertainment. Sony on the other hand has shared almost nothing, saying only that the PS5 operating system is a "100 percent overhaul of the PS4 UI" with "some very different new concepts", and that it is "more subtle than flashy, but no pixel is untouched".

PS5 Media Remote

We now know that PlayStation 5 will Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube apps. How? Well, because these four services have their own dedicated buttons on the PS5 Media Remote. Sony has just now uploaded fresh pictures of the remote to its official pre-order page. The buttons were previously depicted as empty. - "*Internet and account for PlayStation Network required. Streaming services may require paid subscription and are not available in all countries. PS5 system software update may be required," Sony's website noted in reference to this text: "Conveniently navigate entertainment* on your PlayStation 5 console." Also see: PS5 section 4K HDR streaming support? More than likely, we would say. Dolby Vision and Atmos? Those remain open questions. We expect other streaming services to be available on PS5 too, but we will have to wait a little longer for Sony to confirm additional details. Besides controlling PS5, the media remote will be able to adjust your TV's volume. - Source: Sony
