Sony has announced its discount movie rental program for US PSN users is coming back starting today.

The $0.99 fee is for standard definition flicks, while HD ones will run you $1.99.

The list will be updated every Tuesday, and the movies discounted the previous week will return to their original price.

Since its initial debut in July 2011, the $0.99 movie rental program has been one of the most asked-for offers from the PSN community, according to Sony, so good for you who kept mentioning it to the firm.

  • Sicko
  • The Longshots
