Netflix Adds Search Functionality on Sony's PlayStation 3

100°
226w ago - Recently we reported that Netflix will be going discless on the PS3 by October, but today JoyStiq (linked above) revealed that Netflix also offers PlayStation 3 users the ability to search through their entire video library.

To quote: "Netflix just became a lot easier to use on the PS3. No, you still need a disc (for now), but the application has been stealthily upgraded with the ability to search for and watch videos from the entire Instant library.

For example, typing the letter "A" quickly revealed Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Live and Wii versions of Netflix don't appear to have been updated with this feature yet. Xbox owners will have to wait until November."
 

Sony Clarifies PlayStation Plus PSN Content Ownership for Users

250°
226w ago - Just over a month ago Sony updated the PSN Terms of Service and explained PlayStation Plus, but many consumers were still confused and so today Sony has clarified PlayStation Plus PSN content ownership for end-users.

To quote from Sony's Jeff Rubenstein via [Register or Login to view links] comments:

"Free add-ons expire if your subscription ends.

Add-ons you pay for (even if you pay at a discount) are yours to keep for good. The same thing is true for games- free ones expire if you don't renew your subscription. Anything you pay for - even at a discount - is yours forever. Themes and avatars that are free, stay free for good.

There may be instances where a downloadable game is free and the add-on is priced at a discount. In this case, if your subscription ends, you would still have access to the DLC, but would need to re-purchase the game in order to use the add-on."
