Subscription video-on-demand service Stan is set to launch on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on Thursday October 8.
The partnership means the streaming service will be available to PlayStation owners ahead of the anticipated exclusive premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead launching on Stan on October 31. The TV adaptation of the cult horror franchise Evil Dead sees original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert reunited for the series, with Bruce Campbell reprising his iconic role as Ash.
Michael Ephraim, Managing Director at Sony Computer Entertainment, said, “Partnering with Stan is one of the most exciting additions to our entertainment offering to date, and another step towards allowing us to bring a full suite of gaming and entertainment to the whole family – not just gamers.”
Mike Sneesby, Stan CEO, said “Our partnership with PlayStation brings Stan to the highest selling game console in Australia. We are thrilled that new and existing subscribers can now access Stan’s library of award-winning TV shows and box office hits directly on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4.
“Launching Stan on PlayStation is a significant milestone in our roadmap as we bring Australians more ways to access our exciting lineup of content in HD on the big screen.”
To celebrate the momentous entertainment friendship, every time an eligible customer spends $30 or more on any eligible PlayStation product at participating retailers, including JB HiFi, Target, Big W, EB Games and the PlayStation store, they will be entitled to a three-month bonus Stan subscription.
Existing Stan subscribers can log in to the app on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 from Thursday October 8 with their existing username and password. New subscribers can sign up at www.stan.com.au and start their 30-day free trial.
