  1. PlayStation Vue, Sony’s over-the-top service for live television aimed at cord cutters, is now available on Roku devices including Roku set-top boxes, the Roku Streaming Stick and Roku TVs.

    Dan Myers, head of product for PlayStation Vue, said they will also be rolling out support for Android smartphones and tablets next week.

    Sony’s PlayStation Vue service arrived in early 2015. At that time, it was only accessible via Sony’s own PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 game consoles to residents in select cities including Chicago, New York City and Philadelphia. It wasn’t until March 14 of this year that Sony launched nationwide. The service was initially missing some key networks like Disney’s ESPN but those have since been added.

    Pricing starts at $29.99 per month (or $39.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations) for a collection of more than 55 channels. Bumping up to the Core package for $34.99 per month grants access to 70+ channels while the Elite bundle at $44.99 per month offers more than 100 channels.

    PlayStation Vue is also available on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick as well as iPhone and iPad through the PlayStation Vue mobile app. Users can also access the service on Chromecast though compatible iOS devices.

    If you’re interested in trying PlayStation Vue, Sony is currently offering a free seven-day trial for newcomers.

    At $30/mo, it is too expensive for my tastes.

    I wonder when Playstation Vue will be available in Canada. Also hope Playstation Vue creates an app for Apple TV.
