Sony previews upcoming PlayStation Vue cloud TV service

Sony plans to begin testing its new subscription cloud TV service PlayStation Vue in New York City later this month.

After that initial test of the service, which is delivered via the Net to PlayStation 4 and PS3 game systems, Sony expects to launch the service in four cities – New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and L.A. – during the first three months of 2015. More cities will go online after that, says Sony Computer Entertainment President and Group CEO Andrew House.

I'm interested to see how they incorporate it with the ps4. I'm open to the idea of this and will gladly give up Hulu and Netflix for it if done right. Just hope that they don't stray away from having the ps4 as a gaming console first. All in all I'm just curious to see where this service goes. Hopefully they are able to offer a better pay layout. Don't want another ps now incident.

As long as it doesn't mess with the gaming side of things, I'm all for it.

This is great news. I have to ask why they're rolling it out in certain areas though? Being cloud based would mean it should be available to all of us right?

pwnsause_returns1131d ago

the point seems to be that they want to bring it everywhere. they're going to start beta testing it on select cities though starting in NY.

It's probably because the service integrates with local network affiliates as well as national networks. So they have to set it up so that people in New York receive the NY Fox or NBC channels.

you could always use vpn and use it anywhere you are technically as its cloud based

this service would of helped me big time if it was around when i lived at college. the cable tv serice they offered just sucked, didnt even have the YES network, or channels that I wanted.

i see potential Here, hopefully it lives up to it. now i see why the PS TV was made. gives a shot in the arm to the vita if it ever makes an appearance there. Cable tv companies must be pretty pissed.

"now i see why the PS TV was made."

Once and if they make it available to the PS TV. From the article it sounds like Tables will be higher priority.

PS3, PS4, iPad first
Other Sony products and Non-Sony products later

Yea, but eventually it's going to end up there. It's going to happen.

Godmars2901131d ago

I expect price is where they're going to mess things up, but this is something I'm very interested in.

Damn this has potential. That's a lot of channels to start. If the pricw is right *no pun intended* then I'm all in!
