IS PLAYSTATION VUE FOR YOU?

If you’re fed up with your cable or satellite TV company, it’s time to get rid of those contracts and hidden fees. Today, streaming services like Sling TV and DirecTV NOW give viewers countless options for contract-free, subscription- based viewing, often at a fraction of the price of traditional cable TV. But there’s one service that’s turning heads. require a PlayStation console to use, is conquering cable in households across the nation. But how do you decide if this livestreaming service is right for you? PlayStation Vue works with PlayStation consoles, Amazon Fire TV, iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and Chromecast. It has an innovative, show-centric interface and offers profiles for different family members. With this and more, who knows? Maybe it’s time for you to cut the cord with your cable company. PlayStation Vue, a subscription- based service that doesn’t actually

PlayStation Vue’s pricing and packages are confusing, in part because the service’s local channel affiliate contracts are extremely complicated. Your channels and plans will depend on your location, and packages come in two varieties: with or without local channels. The packages that do not include local programming are called “slim.” PlayStation Vue packages range from 45 live channels at $30 per month to 90-plus channels at $75 per month. Each package gives you access to a variety of live TV channels, but it is important to note that PlayStation Vue does not feature Viacom-owned channels like MTV, MTV2, VH1, Spike, and Comedy Central. Standalone subscriptions are also available for a variety of channels, depending on your package. On Amazon, PlayStation Vue stands tall at 4.1 out of 5 stars, with reviews ranging from “Amazing. Period!” to “It doesn’t work.” Amazon reviewer S. Lewis said, “Nothing compares to Vue’s five streams at a time and no restrictions on titles.” But, according to Lewis, there are things PlayStation Vue needs to improve on, just like any subscription service. At the top of the list is better customer service. In addition, Vue’s higher prices, especially in certain cities, mean you might not save much after switching from TV bundles. Plus, it can be difficult to view PlayStation Vue content on mobile devices. Livestreaming services are still fairly new, but PlayStation Vue has quickly risen to the top with its channel selection, cloud DVR, and accessibility. But before you make the switch, make sure to start your five-day free trial to get the full, cable-free experience. Happy streaming!
