Sony has quietly changed the digital rights management policy for its Video Unlimited feature on PlayStation devices. With the change in its DRM policy, consumers can now re-download purchased content from the company's Video Unlimited service. In a statement on the official website for the service, Sony detailed what this means to subscribers:
"The Video Unlimited service is your ticket to on demand entertainment - Hollywood's latest hit movies, select classics and TV shows from every major network - including movies and TV episodes in SD, HD, and 3D!
Movie rentals are available for viewing up to 30 days after purchase and can be viewed multiple times within 24 hours on the same device. If you purchase a copy, the video or TV show download will be available infinitely and can be transferred to other enabled devices."
The change adds cloud library support and re-downloads across all devices. Before this change in policy Video Unlimited users could not re-download purchased content.
