PlayStationVue Mobile is Sony's TV streaming service, offering live channel viewing and an On Demand library. Originally focused on the PlayStation system, the service is now available across a number of devices and allows access to five people at once. As the service has stiff competition from other market favourites like Netflix and Amazon Prime, the question is whether the extra monthly subscription is worth the money.
The main difference between PlayStationVue Mobile and other streaming services is the ability to stream live channels. This can be a great alternative to a traditional cable subscription as Vue can be installed on a wide number of devices at once, ending the need to have a single living room set-up. With a DVR system available on the cloud, the app works well to integrate your viewing. Combined with simple set up and add-ons, PlayStationVue Mobile offers an entertainment package with a greater degree of personalisation than other options. A free seven day trial is offered that can be a good way to judge the system.
PlayStationVue Mobile is currently a less popular option in a world dominated by a select few streaming favourites. Live television watching is a great move forward and offers a real bonus, but with a higher monthly fee.
