From August, Sony’s PlayStation users in Germany and Austria will no longer have access to the StudioCanal titles they purchased.
Citing the rise of streaming services, on August 31, 2021, Sony’s PlayStation stopped selling and renting movies and TV shows. At the time, Sony told customers that they could still “access movie and TV content they have purchased through PlayStation Store for on-demand playback on their mobile devices, PS4, and PS5.” It appears the company did not mean the access would be forever.

“As of August 31, 2022, due to our evolving licensing agreements with content providers, you will no longer be able to view your previously purchased StudioCanal content and it will be removed from your video library,” a notice posted on the gaming platform’s website reads. “We greatly appreciate your continued support.”
Sony did not say if users will be refunded for the purchases once the titles are removed, Variety reported.
In Germany, 314 titles will be removed, and 137 in Austria.
The StudioCanal titles that will be removed include both Paddington movies, Shaun the Sheep Movie, Non Stop, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The removal also affects a few Lionsgate films including the Saw film series, the John Wick series, and The Hunger Games series.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
