Sony has revealed that Apple TV+, Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch, and YouTube will all be available on PS5 on its launch day of November 12, 2020.
Announced on PlayStation.Blog, the PS5 will also be getting additional streaming apps in the future like Amazon Prime Video, MyCanal, Hulu, Peacock, and more.
Some of these apps also have an integrated experience with PS5, including being able to play Spotify in the background while you play a game, watching or livestreaming on Twitch, and broadcasting and sharing gameplay moments from YouTube.
Furthermore, these apps, as was shown in the PS5’s UI reveal, will have a dedicated media entertainment space next to the Game home screen. There will also be no need to download the entertainment apps through the PS Store as they will now all be contained in the Media space.
This will allow for switching quickly between Game and Media spaces and PS5’s new Control Center will also make controlling your music even easier with the ability to switch between channels, skip, and pause whatever you may be playing.
The PS5’s Media Remote will also be available with the launch of the console, and will let users power on the PS5, quickly navigate media, adjust volume and power settings on compatible TVs, and will feature dedicated launch buttons for Disney+, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube.
