Sony Entertainment launches mobile content purchase in Canada

San Mateo, Calif. -- Sony Network Entertainment International LLC and Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC have 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 allows 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, with a mobile device.

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 PlayStation3 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. The wallet top-up charge will appear on their next mobile phone bill, or is debited against their pre-paid account.  

"Offering customers the best entertainment content across the PlayStation Store and Sony Entertainment Network is our top priority," said Eric Lempel, VP, 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."
