At the beginning of this month, Sony announced that the roughly 1,200 series from TV studio Discovery, which were available on the PlayStation Store, will be removed from the video library of accounts that have purchased them from next year. However, the Japanese company is now backtracking.
In an update on the PlayStation website, Sony announced that it has signed a new licensing agreement with Warner Bros. at the last minute. has closed, so the Discovery content will not be removed after all. GamesIndustry.biz shared a longer statement from the company, in which it said users will “still have access to their purchased content for at least the next thirty months.” The question remains whether Sony will then be willing to extend the license agreement again. It has no longer been possible to purchase films and series in the PlayStation Store since 2021, but content that has already been purchased can still be viewed.
