Sony To End PlayStation Now Support On Many Devices Such PS Vita, PlayStation 3 & More On April 1 & August 15
Sony PlayStation recently announced that they are going to end the PlayStation Now support on numerous devices including PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PlayStation TV, all Samsung TV models, all Sony Blu-ray player models, and all Sony Bravia TV models from 2013 to 2015. The announcement was posted on a blog page of PlayStation and the message came from Senior Marketing Manager of PlayStation Now. The service/support will end on August 15, 2017, which is why there are a few months that the players and owners can still use PlayStation Now. In addition, additional information regarding the 2016 models of Sony Bravia TVs will be discontinued this April 1, according to the announcement.
Sony will now focus on the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC to develop a new feature to improve the gaming' experiences. This also goes to the upcoming games on the PlayStation 4 and imports on the PC. However, ending the support for PlayStation Now is not the end of everything because the company will end the support in order for something new to come in.
Furthermore, for those owners or players who do not want to continue the subscription, they should disable the auto-renewal option in the account settings so it will end on April 1 for Sony Bravia TVs and August 15 for other devices. Moreover, the 3-month subscribers, the service may auto-renew a couple of months if they do not turn auto-renewal off. To reminisce with the announcement, PlayStation Now was launched in January 2015 on the PlayStation 4 console and was brought to the PlayStation 3 in May 2015, says Polygon. According to the same source, Sony announced the ending of PlayStation Now on the PS Vita during the fifth anniversary of the console in North America last February 15, 2017. A wise move is to turn off auto-renew for those who haven't turned if off yet.
