Comparing PS4 & Xbox One entertainment apps

by William Schwartz

With the recent launch of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One looming ahead, it would seem fitting to compare the entertainment apps both consoles have prepared at launch (or in the case of Microsoft, at the launch window), as these consoles do much more than simply play games. Keep in mind that the Xbox One apps have a window from the respective launch day in each country to spring 2014, so some apps may not be available at launch.

PlayStation 4 Entertainment Apps for the U.S.

  • Netfix
  • Amazon Instant Video
  • Vudu
  • Hulu Plus
  • Redbox Instant
  • NBA Gametime
  • NHL Gamecenter Live
  • Twitch
  • Crackle
  • Epix
  • Crunchyroll
  • Sony Music Unlimited
  • Sony Video Unlimited
  • VidZone
  • Yupp TV

Canada

  • Netflix
  • Crunchyroll
  • Crackle
  • NHL Game Center

Currently, no word from Sony on what apps will be available for the rest of the countries the PS4 is launching on, but this post will be updated once more news arrives.
