The PlayStation Store is testing out a new video streaming technology that they hope will make movie and video streams a bit faster and smoother on your PlayStation 3. The program is open beta right now, discounting a few movies while Sony gets user opinions on the update.
Usually when hear the word “beta” you’d picture a sign up page and some sort of email confirmation, but that’s not the case here. In fact, the Sony Entertainment Network blog says all you have to do is log in to the PlayStation store on your PS3 and make way over to the movies section. There you’ll find the beta program and the available movies front and center.
The program offers up a small selection of films in HD and SD formats, priced at $1.99 and $0.99 respectively. All Sony asks in return is that you fill out a survey emailed to you after your purchase, letting them know what you thought of the new streaming tech.
