PlayStation Vue is Sony’s cord-cutter TV service and it is now coming to Android TVs. A later update will bring PS Vue to the web.
PS Vue on Android TV
The PlayStation Vue service delivers a classic bundle of TV channels via streaming, allowing you to cut the antenna cable. The service is already available on PS4, PS3, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, Roku as well as Apple iPhone/iPad and Android mobile devices.
It is now expanding to Android TV with a new app. It works on TVs from Sony, Philips, Sharp and others as well as boxes such as Nvidia Shield and Nexus Player.
- “If you already have a PS Vue account, you can begin streaming your favorite TV content starting today by downloading the PS Vue app on Android TVs running Android OS 4.4 or higher,” said Sony.
Web support “coming soon”
Additionally, web support for both PC and Mac is “coming soon”. This will also include a “mini-player, which allow you to shrink the player to the corner of the browser window and continue browsing PS Vue for a convenient experience”, the company added.
You can stream PlayStation Vue on up to five devices simultaneously. Vue offers a cloud PVR for recording content. More information is available at psvue.com.
