Video Unlimited_12.0.B.0.3_3Sony has updated its Movies and Video Unlimited media apps. The Movies app has moved from build number 6.2.A.0.10 to 7.0.A.0.8, introducing .mkv (Matroska) file support and the ability to select subtitles and audio from various options. Another new feature is the ability to pinch zoom during playback so that you can zoom up to 2x whilst watching your video content to get that extra detail.

The Video Unlimited app has also been updated, moving from build number 11.0.B.0.4 to 12.0.B.0.3. The preview screen for content has been improved allowing for automatic playback and preview control (seek, pause, play). The welcome screen has also been improved. See some pictures of both updates below.
