When you bought that video last febuary Sony wasn't even allowing you to redownload a video without paying for it again. You should have backed it up to your pc if you didn't want to leave it on your vita. Cause at the point you bought it there was not very much chance of getting to redownload them again. I have all my sd videos backed up from my vita to my pc so that if I wanted to delete them from my vita I could still put them back.
I went from downloading them on my ps3 then sending them to my vita and then backing up to my pc. When my ps3 died in November of 2012 I was able to restore them back to my ps3 (at least the sd versions of my videos.) by restoring them to my vita and then from the vita to my ps3. All of this before Sony started letting us redownload psn videos.

But now that sony has seemingly changed the download policy on psn videos they also changed some (but not most) of the video files so that even if you had backed them up the backups wouldn't play.

Sometimes things were meant to be two parts in the first place. Sadly sony is under no obligation to give you part 2 when they change the file to be just part one of two.
Those rules suck, but that is the way it is. At least their rules changed enough to let you redownload it in the first place. I'm sure if you complain enough they might give it to you or ban you. (one of those)

I was really happy to finaly be able to redownload all my HD videos again. Sadly the way ps3 backs up psn videos to an external hdd doesn't backup the license with them. So when my ps3 died I wasn't able to restore the hd versions without having to pay again. But when sony started letting us redownload I was able to get all of them back without having to pay again. Most of the backups worked fine when I restored them to my new ps3 and then did a trick where I would just start the download of the video and then cancel once it was activated again. Quicker then just redownloading the video.
Some of the HD videos needed to be redownloaded due to the files being changed from 720p to 1080p.
I had part 6 of the sd FLCL anima finaly be able to be downloaded in sd. Sonys psn store had the hd version of it as the sd version when I bought it. Both the sd and hd of that part 6 were Hd at the time I bought it. I was tending to take the bargin of being able to get both sd and hd for the same price as just the hd version. Since I had a vita and ps3 it was great.
One more thing you can do if you back up your standard (SD) videos to your pc is you can play them Using media go. You just have to point media go's library to where the backups for those videos are then sign in with the same psn account and activate media go for playback. I recommend deactivating playback after playing stuff on the pc since media go tends to lose your activation when it updates itself.


What do you mean ban me? Ban me from what??

Why don't you just check the email account tied to the psn?
Purchases get email confirmations.

Have you not read the terms of service?

Sony can ban you for any or no reason.

you could suck it up and pay the buck or so it costs to redownload it, or just you know download it elsewhere

Are you sure that you weren't just high when you downloaded it?

This thread should have been a poll. A well-greased pole, for the audience to show their appreciation for the performers!

You should have an email receipt from when you bought your video telling you what episodes you have, it's not like Sony can hack into your email address and change what the receipt says.
