Sony is shutting down PlayStation Vue

Sony’s television streaming service PlayStation Vue will shut down in January 2020, the company announced Tuesday.

First rolled out in 2015, PlayStation Vue is a live television streaming service with nearly 800,000 subscribers. The service includes live television channels, on-demand content, and cloud-based DVR. Plans start at $49.99 with channels like AMC, CNN, ESPN, and TBS.

“We are very proud of what PlayStation Vue was able to accomplish. We had ambitious goals for how our service could change how people watch TV, showcasing PlayStation’s ability to innovate in a brand-new category within the Pay TV industry,” says SIE deputy president John Kodera.

“We want to thank all of our customers, some of whom have been with us since PlayStation Vue’s launch in 2015,” Kodera added.

PS4 owners will still be able to access movies and television content through the PlayStation Store and various third-party apps. The PS4 supports video streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Now, Twitch, YouTube, NBA, NFL, MLB.TV, and more.
