    I mean the redeem code for the free movie that we’re supposed to receive by email. I know the store is already up :p

  • At long last! Thank you so much! I can finally curtail my use of iTunes.

  • Sweet thanx!!!! So i went to the video section of the store on my ps3, when will i get the email??? Does anyone know if I need to do anything else or do i just sit and slam back some beer till i get it….

  • YAY! Its about time! Thanks Sony :)

  • Celebrate it better in Playstation Home Central Plaza. :)

  • lmao… Charlies Angels…

  • Thank you! now Comic Store to Canada!

  • Shouldn’t you have picked a more Canadian Movie?

    Men With Brooms or something?

    Or better yet Porkys.

  • Nice! i just hope that someday this reaches Mexico! happy canada day!

  • There is a little window dressing since almost all the rentals only show the title and a blank selection screen… but it’s a start. Will we have to wait two more years to get the rentals and TV shows now?

  • hmmmm i just checked it and hmmm theres like 20 movies to rent…. will we get some more in a reasonable delay or it will take a while? because yes its great that we got the service but if theres no reason to use it for, its not better

  • Thank you sony. Drinking and watching movies before noon. Best Canada day ever.

  • Thank You Sony, this makes Canada Day that much sweeter, Has anyone received their codes to DL Charlie’s Angles yet?

  • Thank you!!!! FINALLY, amiirite? ca’t wait to download tonnnns of cool Animes and Movies and what not~ Happy Canada Day Everyone!

  • this is kool and about time.I visited and checked the mail,No code yet!!!!

  • Congratulations to all the Canadian users!

  • Great news for all Canadians lucky enough to own a PS3. Today marks the end of Blockbuster for us ! Can’t wait to download HD movies from the comfort of my sofa. Thank-you Sony.

  • Is this out all across the country? I’m in Toronto and I can’t find it.

  • @45

    Kyle Moffat is no longer with the company.

  • Woot woot!! Bit of a random choice but I won’t complain. Merci!!

  • thank you very much Sony
    HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYONE!!

  • Blame Canada, blame Canada!

  • Ok I found the video store section after selecting an add on the right of the PSN store. I can see all the available movies etc, but when I select a movie I want, it says “this content cannot be accessed on your account” is it just me who has this problem?

  • Yes! Finally, I’ve been waiting for this.
    Thanks Sony!!

    && Happy Canada Day everyone. :)

  • kinda makes me wish i lived in canada but thats fine, california gets too much love anyways so im good =P

  • Well, it’s a start. And a damn fine one at that.

    I look forward to things that come in the future.

  • I was surprised how much content we started off with!

  • take off ef?

  • hot womenz 4 all!!!!!!

  • @66
    20 movies??? In the New Release section maybe. But I see HUNDREDS of movies here.
    Great news – no more giving Rogers Cable my $ for overly compressed
    HD on-demand movie. This is cheaper and the rental lasts longer. Great news!

  • thanks Grace and Sony , been looking forward to this .

    a question though , is it still updating the canadian store or are a lot of these videos not available here ?
    I browsed for movies to own and the first 3 I wanted showed the title page but then when I clicked on them it said no content found – they are copycat , eddie murphy raw and ferris buellers day off

    after that I stopped looking because it seemed there weren’t any I could actually rent or buy .

    hope it’s just a glitch .

  • Haha. Really. You’re giving them Charlie’s Angels? Wow.

  • Thank you Sony.

    Happy Canada Day everyone!

  • Hahaha Charlies Angels? Really? Is this a subtle way of insulting us? No, i’m not mad or complaining, I just find this genuinely amusing. Bad movie was baaaad.

    But yay! Video store!

  • squallxlionheart

    Great JOB SONY!
    I know the Canadians have been waiting for this service for a while now… Great job on listening!!!

  • South America exist too! Make for us a Store almost descent!

  • Dear PlayStation,

    I’m a french canadian, yet I absolutely want to see films in their original version. Sadly, it seems like the films I want to see are dubbed and there is no way to change that. What should I do?

    Sincerly,
    VincentVendetta

  • Congrats

  • I complained before, so now I’m here to say Thank You!

  • Solid-Snake-Eyes

    Thanks for finally bringing this to Canada, would also like the PSP comic store.

    My immediate impressions:

    Content is better than I expected, I thought half of it was gonna be Corner Gas and other Canadian crap like that. That’s how iTunes was for like a year.

    Rental prices are good, much better than I expected.

    More things need to be available in HD.

    Half the things I click on go to a blank “not found” or error screen.

    Now they just need to add more HD and more content (I wanted to rent Youth in Revolt but it’s not there) and I may actually rent some HD movies on this thing. Good start, 3.5 thumbs up!

  • will there be any french version of movies?

  • Great new feature for all Canadians! Has anyone bought a movie yet ? Do they support subtitles ? In french and english ?

  • Charlie’s Angels…BLARGH

    Free is free I guess.

  • @97

    Only some movies are available for rent. You might want to check the buy section as Youth in Revolt might be there.

  • Happy Canada Day everyone.

  • Thank you so much. I already have 110 blu rays. Dont no what I will do with the video store. Maybe rent something before I buy it see if its worth the buy. Anyways thanks PS and also just waiting for that code in my email for the free movie I tried downloading it from the store there was no content. Guess redeem only xD
