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
