PS4′s 11 Entertainment Apps Available at Launch in US & Canada Include Netflix and More (Update: Canadian PS4 Launch Apps Confirmed)
Update: We reached out to PlayStation Canada and they confirmed that the PS4 Apps available at launch in Canada on November 15th are as follows: Netflix, Crackle, Crunchyroll, and NHL GameCenter.
Original Story: When the PS4 launches on November 15th in the United States and Canada, there will be 11 different entertainment apps to choose from in the TV & Video section of the PlayStation Store.
Now, while all of these will be available in the United States, it seems highly unlikely that all of them will be available in Canada (we’ve reached out to Sony for more info), so don’t be disappointed when you see fewer options come next Friday.
Here’s the list of 11 apps:
