Movies app_4Sony has launched a big update for the company’s Movies app, which moves from build version 5.3.A.0.20 to 6.2.A.0.8. New highlights include an overhauled user experience, allowing users to swipe right to bring up a drawer menu and the ability to pinch/zoom icons (similar to the Albums app). There is also improved player control, pinch gestures can be used for zooming in/out as well as searching scenes. The apk can be downloaded here.

The Video Unlimited app also saw a big update moving it to version 11.0.B.0.4. Improvements have been made to screen layouts, such as TV show listings. Some people are reporting that they have received the update, but are unable to access content. If you’ve downloaded the update, let us know how you’ve got on in the comments below.

  • What a Stupid Update

    The service not available in your current location…That’s all = =

  • ss

    Sony, it’s better to fix core bugs first, then fix your embedded apps that most countries can’t use.

  • Gary Halpin

    Video unlimited is not available in Ireland also movie app is still flickering!!!

  • Nabeel Raza

    Wow, india got video unlimited as well. Xperia Z and Xperia L.

  • Pat

    I just received the Movie update. Yes, it has a new UI, but I am still experiencing the bug in which I cannot find certain movie information via the integrated Gracenote. For example, I search “Thor” or “Pacific Rim”, the app tells me “No network available blah blah”. This used to work before the 4.4 update.

    I guess this is a 4.4 bug rather than the app itself? I’m still waiting for this system update that hopefully fixes not only the sound bug, but other bugs as well. I really getting impatient with Sony. :(

    Does anybody else have this? :(

  • jacmac007

  • Sumedh Patil

    Got the video unlimited app on Xperia ZR. But it say not available in your region. A Mumbai, India customer…!! I hope they make it available soon..!! :/

  • mustafa

    I wonder when they’ll update the album and Walkman apps

  • Nabeel Raza

    yes, no use as of now for you guys, but sony will be soon launching play station services as well ( i hope you saw that discussion ? ) . So i believe then would be the time when we all will be able to use it. Although i can use it now as i already have a sony entertainment network ID :) I use play station as well

  • Zoastra

    Why would you want the video unlimited app? It’s so ridiculously expensive! Do you not have Netflix or anything like that in India?

  • Zoastra

    If you guys are bemoaning that you don’t have some service in your area let me summarise:

    VideoUnlimited: Expensive. Buying a movie is twice the cost of having Netflix for a whole month. Waste of time.
    MusicUnlimited: Again, expensive, Google Play Music is a better option
    PSM: Terrible games. Not expensive but no where near worth the money they ask.

    Conclusion: You’re not missing out on anything. These services are not worth your money. I am a huge Sony fan from the Triniton days.

  • Fanboy

    I received this update but video unlimited is not working on India

  • Mohammed Khired

    is your arc s work perfectly? no lag at all ? no problems ?

  • glein

    which device?

  • Fanboy

    Z1

  • fun

    Indeed there should be an option to manage photos into different albums and folders and lock them with a password SONY??? Pay attention we want photo album folder management with built in security and privacy lock and encrypt content with a password be a winner…

  • spatch

    Woke up this morning, and the updates had installed overnight — that was a nice surprise! Everything works great, and I’m now using the movies app on my Xperia ZL for the first time ever.

    BTW, I haven’t received an update to any of my Xperia media apps on my Tablet Z in a long while. Would the Movies apk work on the tablet, or is it just for smartphones? Has Sony already forgotten the Tablet Z..?

  • benj

    Where is Canada’s Kitkat?!

  • Peter

    It’s nice that it can be zoomed now :)

  • Stephen

    i got the 2 updates just now but video unlimited says its not available in my region which is ireland but it is available in the uk
    fucking nonsense
    why send me an update that wont work

  • Riffienkuningas666 .

    Why can’t they fix the lockscreen wallpaper issue… It cannot be changed

  • Renmar

    I got these updates today here in the Philippines.
    Video Unlimited is a New App. I installed it. But it requires another app which is called “Account Manager”.
    I tried to install it but is NOT AVAILABLE IN MY COUNTRY. HOW THE HELL CAN I USE THIS APP?

  • mark

  • joh

  • sTEVEN

    No, I reinstalled 2 times using PC Companion and the result is the same: no Movies app update available, no Video Unlimited.

    Query:
    My Xperia Z Ultra (C6802) received the update notification for Movies and Video Unlimited, when on Android 4.3.3, but I didnt install it, as my 4.4.2 update was also released at the same time. Post installing my KitKat, the update for Movies and Video Unlimited is no longer available. Anyone facing the same issue?

  • Prasanth Namboothiri

    take it or leave it

  • Young Ooi

    Is this the original apk for Xperia 4.3 or a port?

  • DonDicksson

    Yes, it seems it’s a common fault of Sony: if you update the phone firmware, those updates are no longer available. Maybe somebody from Sony will fix this, considering that we paid a lot for our premium devices.

    How to search for scene in the movies app?

  • glein

    I agree on the updates, but walkman and album have been updated. I use an unbranded C5303 SP (Generic Greek cust. nr.) and got all the app updates normally, except the Movies update.
