Quote from Sony Entertainment Network’s website:
We’ve incorporated a new technology that will greatly enhance your viewing experience by providing you a more adaptive, faster stream whenever you rent a movie from the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 3. But, before we roll out with our entire catalog, we want to test the technology out and get your opinion. For a limited time, we’re discounting some HD and SD movie titles. Check them out and let us know what you think.
Here’s how to cash in on the deal and help us out along the way:
- Log on to the PlayStation Store on your PS3.
- Scroll down to the Movies section where you will immediately find our beta test in the first section.
- Rent one of the five movies for only $1.99 in HD or 99¢ in SD.
- Fill out the brief survey that will be emailed to you after you purchase and watch the movie.
