Your PS4 is more than just a game console. It is also an entertainment hub that hosts a wide variety of streaming services. Whether you want to catch the latest movie release or binge on a retro TV, chances are the PS4 has a streaming app for that.

All the big names are available, like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, along with a few smaller players. We’ll show you how to get these apps on your PS4.

What streaming services does the PS4 support?

The streaming apps offered by your PS4 depend on your region. Makes sense – you wouldn’t want NOW, a UK streaming service, to be available worldwide, for example.

The PS4 offers apps for both free and paid streaming services. As such, even though you can download most apps for free, some of them still require a paid subscription to use.

Some of the streaming services available on the PS4 in the US are:

  • AppleTV+
  • CBS All Access
  • CBS News
  • Disney+
  • ESPN+
  • Funimation
  • HBO Max
  • NBC Sports
  • Hulu
  • netflix
  • Paramount+
  • Pluto TV
  • Tic
  • Vudu
  • WWE Network
  • Youtube
