Are you looking for something to watch on your console beside the best PS4 games?
If you’re into the idea of being a cordcutter like I am, then the newly announced PlayStation Vue app for the PS4 and PS3 is likely going to be for you. The Vue is a new cloud-based TV service that “reinvents” the television experience. The service uses the cloud to combine live, on-demand and catch-up TV content from some of the best networks available — all without a cable or satellite subscription!
Prepare to be able to watch live and on-demand content from some of the top TV networks, including:
- CBS – At launch, PlayStation®Vue will offer the live linear signal from CBS Television Network’s owned-and-operated TV stations in select leading markets in addition to on-demand prime-time programming.
- Discovery Communications – Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery, Science, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, Discovery Family Channel and 11 more brands.
- Fox – Fox Networks Group’s portfolio of national entertainment programming services, including – FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD. Additionally FOX Sports’ national and regional programming services – FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, BTN, Fox’s regional sports networks, including YES Network and Prime Ticket. The agreement also covers Fox’s owned and operated television stations.
- NBCUniversal – All local offerings from NBC, Telemundo and regional sports networks as well as Bravo, CNBC, E!, NBCSN, Oxygen, Sprout, Syfy, USA Network and more.
- Scripps Networks Interactive – HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network and Cooking Channel.
- Viacom – BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, PALLADIA, Spike, VH1 and more.
Viewers will be able to save their favorite shows to the cloud without storage restrictions or scheduling issues, and will automatically have access to the latest episodes of that show for 28 days so that they can watch it whenever.
There aren’t any details on pricing just yet, as PlayStation Vue will soon begin an invite only beta preview during November for select PS4 and PS3 owners. The pricing and packages appears to be basically a la carte, but we’ll find out more once the service launches commercially at some point in the first quarter of 2015. Hopefully, there will be more of an emphasis on the live portion of the service rather than the on-demand stuff.
