On Thursday, Rogers announced that their TV streaming service shomi is now available on Sony’s PlayStation 4. The announcement gives shomi subscribers another way to enjoy all the movies and TV shows that the streaming service has to offer.

The PS4 system streams from the shomi app, which means that subscribers will get the full streaming service experience in HD quality. Director of shomi Ann Tebo said:

“Members have been asking for shomi on the PS4 system since we launched, and I’m thrilled we are now able to provide our service on this platform. With the addition of the PS4 system there are now four Internet-connected ways for members to get great shomi content on their TV screen.”

In order to use shomi on your PS4, you must first secure an activation code from the shomi app on the PS4 system. Then, head to shomi.com/activate, select PS4, and log in to your shomi account. Once you enter the activation code on the website you’ll be ready to start streaming content to your PS4.

Rogers and Shaw’s shomi is available to all Canadians through Rogers Channel 300, select tablets, mobile devices, set-top boxes, and now gaming consoles.

    Better than the Apple TV app! It supports user profiles (so you have access to both your recently watched, and to-watch lists), which is a huge plus over the Apple TV app.

  • User profiles are definitely a must. Maybe this is a sign the Apple TV app will soon get them.

    Rogers being Rogers, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
    The first feature I would like for Shomi on the Apple TV, though, would be for it to be integrated in Siri’s search results like Netflix is. Searching for anything in the app is a drag.
    But I guess that’s more on Apple’s side: they have to integrate more services, or alternatively, open the search API to third party apps, like they did with Spotlight on iOS.
