Sony announces PlayStation 5 Media Apps, includes Apple TV, Netflix, and more

The PlayStation 5 is launching in less than a month and based on the list of accessories, a certain media remote tends to get overlooked compared to the DualSense Controller the Pulse 3D Headset. Now, Sony have revealed details of what media apps will launch with the PS5 on day one, which will give context to what the media remote is for and what it can do.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced a list of apps that users will be able to enjoy along with their PlayStation 5:

  • Apple TV
  • Disney Plus
  • Netflix
  • Spotify
  • Twitch
  • YouTube

More apps like Amazon Prime Video, MyCanal, Hulu, Peacock, and more will be available at a later date.

During the UI presentation, a media section was briefly shown and it will be the central hub of all of these apps, and it will be quite interesting to find out if the new picture-in-picture feature of the PS5 UI will work here, allowing you to play your favorite game while streaming from Netflix at the same time. Maybe?

The PlayStation 5 Media Remote is sold separately for $29.99, or around PHP1,500.
