I will miss DLNA support as I used my PS3 to stream content from my Plex server. Obviously its possible for companies like Plex to write native clients for the systems but that takes time and its an investment they need to make when Sony already have the technology to do it!

I often copy video files to USB drive so I can play them through the ps3. Of course these are mostly torrents of American TV shows and they'll probably be wanting to push their own paid services for that kind of thing on me.

PS3 was FAT32, which means via USB no file bigger than 4GB could be transferred. Without DNLA I would've never gotten to store EIGHTEEN GIGA*****S worth of Avatar on my PS3 just so I could show off my shiny new TV to people.
... Damn that's a lot of caps lock.

Basically, no stuff from un-licenced sources, then (at the moment, at least). Video will come from the Sony Video Unlimited, video store Netflix etc. music from Tune In Radio and Music Unlimited for now.

I can sort of understand video, but MP3s are widely used legally as DRM free files.

My problem with digital film download at the moment is that if I buy a film on Blinkbox the license is only on Blinkbox it doesn't transfer to Apple ITunes, Google Play etc. Think there should be a central license database every time you make a purchase it is accessible via all stores or locations. This would make the world a better place.

My problem with this setup is if I buy a film/tv series from google play/itunes etc how do i view it on my PS4 or Xbox One at the moment. You can't sad times.

That's certainly a pain I face as well.

Unlimited Rental services like Netflix, Lovefilm and Now TV certainly help, but if you want to keep films then there are few apps that work across products (Blinkbox is one of the few that does).

However, I guess if you were to buy all Sony equipment (Sony TV, phone, tablet, computer, console) then you'd at least have this. Doesn't really leave much choice, though.

The issue is that most video sources not tied into one of these are illegal ones.

I love BlinkBox simply because I like buying BluRays so tend to buy them all from Tesco now so that I get the digital copy on BlinkBox free as it is associated with my clubcard.
