Sony's excellent PlayStation Vue streaming service arrives on Android TV
Yet another awesome live TV option is available on Android TV boxes.
Sony’s excellent live TV service, PlayStation Vue, is now available on Android TV. The service, which starts at $30 per month and offers a wide range of package options for streaming live TV from well-known channels, expands to being available natively on Android TV after previously launching on Android with Chromecast support.
Current PlayStation Vue subscribers simply have to install the Vue app on their Android TV box and sign in to start streaming right away, as Vue supports up to five simultaneous devices accessing its content from the same account. If you want to give Vue a try before buying, you can sign up for a seven-day free trial on its website as well. After that, you’ll have to work out which package appeals to your TV watching needs — prices top out at $75 per month.
Another interesting bit from the announcement today is that PlayStation Vue will soon expand to PCs and Macs via the web, which could really make it enticing for people who were on the fence waiting for that flexibility. Once web support arrives, you’ll be able to access PlayStation Vue on just about any device you could imagine.
Why is there PlayStation stuff here?
PlayStation on Android Central?!? We use our Android phones to interact with the PlayStation 4 — especially if you have a Sony Xperia phone. We’re also talking a lot more about VR, and PlayStation VR is just as big a part of that conversation. It stretches things outside of Android a little, but it’s also going to be a lot of fun. Enjoy!
