Sony Entertainment Network Launches Mobile Billing In Canada

New Wallet Funding Option Makes It Easier to Purchase Games, Movies, Music, 
and More Through Sony Entertainment Network and PlayStation®Store 
SAN MATEO, Calif., April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Sony Network Entertainment 
International LLC and Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC today unveiled a 
new feature that enables users of participating mobile networks in Canada to 
top up their account wallet to purchase content from the PlayStation®Store 
and across Sony Entertainment Network using a mobile phone account. 
Working with mobile payments company, Boku, the process makes it easier for 
users to obtain PlayStation®Store and Sony Entertainment Network content, 
including downloadable games, add-ons, themes, movies and TV shows, as well as 
subscriptions to the Music Unlimited service.   Mobile billing works in 
conjunction with select mobile network operators in Canada. 
From launch, wallet top-ups with mobile billing can be made through the 
PlayStation®Store on PlayStation®3 (PS3™) systems or Account Management 
via the Sony Entertainment Network website.   Customers can choose "mobile" as 
the payment option, enter their mobile phone number, and respond via SMS to 
confirm the wallet top-up(1).  The wallet top-up charge will appear on their 
next mobile phone bill, or is debited against their pre-paid account(2). 
"Offering customers the best entertainment content across the 
PlayStation®Store and Sony Entertainment Network is our top priority," said 
Eric Lempel, Vice President, Sony Network Entertainment International. "Mobile 
billing is another secure and convenient way for users to fund their wallet 
for immediate access to the content they want." 
With an unprecedented amount of digital content now available across the 
network, and new and easier ways to top-up user account wallets, the 
PlayStation Store and Sony Entertainment Network online store deliver 
convenient and immediate access to games, movies and TV episodes, music, and 
more for PS4™, PS3™, PlayStation®Vita, PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) 
systems and other devices.
