How do I rent Movies on my PS3?

14 Replies 4,725 Views Created 20-09-2011

 

Hi everybody,

 

I just bought a Playstation 3 about 2 days ago and have so far been learning all the features like Vidzone and PS Home but the question I have is how do you rent Movies, I have looked at all the menu's in the PS Store and can't find them anywhere.

 

Is there something really obvious I am missing?

 

Thank you for all your help

theres a Games Store and a Video Store. both in the same place, just go on to the Store, and up the top of the screen there should be a little tab to get to the video side of things :smileywink:.

theres also different services like LoveFilm and stuff like that which are just on the main XMB menu.

Re: How do I rent Movies on my PS3?

Thank for the answer guys but I need more help,

 

when I go into the PS Store it looks like this

 

[Store Top] (<- which does nothing on the main page)

 

- Play Offer

- PS Plus

- Latest

- Charts

- All Games

- Game Franchise

- Demoes

- Themes & Avatars

- Other Media

 

At first I thought 'Other Media' might be it but its not

 

Also I cant find the link at the top you guys are talking about, sorry, is there anything else I might be doing wrong?

Directly above "Play offer"...you have two other buttons.

 

Game and Video, click on Video and that takes you to the Video Section of the store.

 

Edit: got this sketchy photo from the Web but you should still be able to make it out....

 

Can you see between  "PlayStation Store"  and "PlayStation Plus" it has two extra buttons that say Game and Video, you want to be clicking on Video.

You also have to go into account settings & activate your ps3 for for watching movies..

If you go to the store link under video will take you straight to movies aswell.

Re: How do I rent Movies on my PS3?

Another question is, what Country are you from or What country is registered to your PSN account?

 

As i have just noticed the "Store Top" section you stated....this from what i have been reading means the Video Store isn't available to you? If instead of Games/Video it is just Store Top.

 

Someone may want to firm that up though, as i have barely used the Video Store, but i know i have it available to me....you should also check if you have the option to take you straight to it, via the XMB, like the other two guys above me mentioned :smileyhappy:

The icon should still be there in the store regardless of if you've registered your PS3 to play movies.

Another crazy Irish person on board. Welcome - where abouts you from fella?
