PlayStation Vue is the infamous gaming company’s own version of streaming internet TV. This live experience is offered on-demand with a live tv component without the all the hidden fees and contracts that traditional cable companies are known for.
Sony PlayStation Vue has many channels including ESPN, CBS, ABC, TBS, HBO, SYFY, ETC. Many of you are probably thinking that you will need a PlayStation gaming console to access this rich live content but I beg to differ. PlayStation Vue does not need a PlayStation gaming console you can watch it on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku players and TVs, and even your mobile device. Just download the app and you’re in business.
Vue does cost more then Sling TV but it also offers more channels where SlingTV does not. It currently has 4 tiers of service:
Access for $44.99/month which includes many of the popular channels
Core for $49.99/month basically the same channels as Access with the addition of some sport channels and non-sport channel.
Elite for $59.99 gives you complete access to all the channels in the previous two tiers and several movie channels.
Lastly Ultra at $79.99 offers all the channels in the prior tiers and adds 2 “premium” channels.

Yes. You can watch up to 5 devices at once. However, Sony does require that you tie all your devices to a single address if you disregard this requirement Sony may block you altogether. This is done in a cheap effort to ensure no one shares their account with friends and family…bummer right.
