Sony’s PlayStation Vue is finally ready for use on Android devices in the United States.
The app will allow you to stream live television to your phone or tablet without a traditional cable or satellite subscription. PlayStation Vue is similar to Dish Network’s Sling TV that launched in 2015. Both offerings are proving to be viable options for cord cutters as they continue to add valuable content.
In December 2015, Sony brought this service to iOS devices before its own Android devices. Amazon’s Fire TV devices, too, received support months ago. That’s why everyone has been puzzled with the wait for PlayStation Vue to come to Android.
Pricing for PlayStation Vue starts at $29.99 per month and can be as high as $54.99 per month depending on your location. The cable channels included in every bundle cover television shows, movies, and sports in addition to your local broadcast stations.
- Access: 55+ channels, including live cable TV, movies, and sports channels for $29.99 per month ($39.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*)
- Core: 70+ channels, including all the channels from Access with the addition of live national and regional sports networks for $34.99 per month ($44.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*)
- Elite: 100+ channels, featuring all the channels from Core with the addition of top movie and entertainment channels for $44.99 per month ($54.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*)
If you’re interested, Sony is giving out free trials for new customers.
On mobile devices, however, there is a little bit of a catch. Due to streaming rights being tied up in intricate ways, not all content can be viewed on a phone or tablet. So Sony will put special marks on the restricted content.
