PlayStation Vue Coming to Amazon Devices Today

Dan Myers's Avatar Posted by on Nov 12, 2015 // Head of Product, PlayStation Vue

We’re excited to announce that the family of supported devices for PlayStation Vue just got bigger. For those of you wanting to access PlayStation Vue on additional TVs in your home, you can do so starting today on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, with Chromecast support soon to follow. This brings the availability of PlayStation Vue to a total of seven devices: PS4, PS3, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, iPhone and iPad, with Chromecast coming soon.

PlayStation Vue on Amazon Devices

You can access PlayStation Vue on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick using your existing PlayStation Vue account. If you don’t have a PlayStation Vue account yet, not to worry. You can sign up for several free trial options through the PlayStation Vue website in addition to your PS4 or PS3.

From there, you can select individual channels from PlayStation Vue’s nationwide offerings, such as SHOWTIME and Fox Soccer Plus, or purchase multi-channel packages available in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco Bay Area, and Miami TV markets.

We also have a special Amazon promotion for new users who sign up for PlayStation Vue’s Core or Elite packages. For a limited time starting November 15th, 2015, new users who sign up for a free trial of PlayStation Vue’s Core and Elite multi-channel packages will receive a free Amazon Fire TV Stick with their first month paid subscription. The promotion runs in select cities where PlayStation Vue multi-channel packages are available. For full terms and conditions, please visit www.psvue.com.

Also, just in time for the holidays, you’ll see new reduced prices for PlayStation Vue’s Core and Elite packages. Core is now available for $54.99 (from $59.99) and Elite is now available for $64.99 (from $69.99) in select markets where Vue is available. If you’re a current Vue subscriber, you’ll receive the new price in your next billing cycle.

With your existing PlayStation Vue subscription, you’ll be able to access PlayStation Vue on Chromecast via the PlayStation Vue Mobile app from compatible iOS devices later this year. We’ll have more information on launch timing soon for Chromecast. We’re pleased to extend PlayStation Vue to additional devices to give you more options on how you want to Vue your favorite TV content.

Stay tuned to the blog for more info on PlayStation Vue, or check out our official site for more information.

    America needs to beak up tv and internet providers.

    It’s crap that you get data caps, to prevent you from streaming, so that they can keep a t.v. service at drastically overinflated prices that the market clearly can’t bear, while they get fractions of a penny for online ads, tons of money for t.v. ads, and then you have to pay $6 to hulu to get ad free, and then these packages cost $40+ a month.

    If I paid $5 a channel for all the channels I needed, I’d be able to cancel hulu and netflix and break even. But all this money isn’t going to those people. Instead those people have to hope I drop $40 something dollars on a single season of their t.v. show that they otherwise rent out for $2, or that they get pennies on the dollar if I stream.

    There’s plenty of money, but it’s all tied up in greed not products. Except for Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon originals.

Okay, Sony. How about you add support to your own devices a.k.a Xperia smartphones and tablets? How is this service available on the ipoop, but not the Xperia Z4 tablet or Z5 phones? Perplexing. I don’t want to support Apple or Amazon thank you very much. Also, while we’re on topic, it is time for you to get on board with T-Mobile’s new “Binge On” promotion. They signed Sling TV, and as someone that tethers from his Xperia smartphone, I can stream Netflix & HBO Go without using data against my cap, which means my PS4 just became obsolete as a media hub without PS Vue support from T-Mobile.


     

    + cjhill1836 on November 12th, 2015 at 9:44 am said:

    I’m glad to see the service growing, and prices becoming even more competitive, but unfortunately these new devices do not interest me. I’ve bought heavily into the Sony ecosystem, but strangely, aside from my PS4 and PS3, the devices I use are not supported. I have four TV’s with a PS4, PS3, and two PlayStation TV’s, so I should be able to “Vue” on each. Sadly, no support for PlayStation TV, the most obvious device, which leaves two of my TV’s stranded. Also, between my wife and I, we have two Xperia phones (Z1s & Z3), and an Xperia Tablet Z2, but none of these are compatible. How odd that IOS is the sole mobile operating system supported when Sony’s own devices run Android. I understand the service is in it’s infancy, and I can wait, but Sony has to support their own devices before I’ll be interested.

    It also needs to be supported on Android TV device’s such as the New Sony TV’s that come with Android TV. (These devices support’s Chromecast but it should be a Standalone dedicated App on Android TV.) This way more device’s running Android TV will be connected to PlayStation Vue and not require a second device to use the service.

Really enjoyed my trial with it, the pricing is still a bit high for me. Market-wise it”s competitively priced with “traditional” cable providers.

+ KazeEternal on November 12th, 2015 at 9:02 am said:

I need a nationwide launch and al la carte options. Looking at whats available I’d like to do the following:

Fox
CBS
NBS
AMC
Spike
FX
SyFy
USA
Machinma
Science
TCM
TNT
Fox News
CNN

And I’d like to pay less than access as I don’t need 52 channels when 14 is at best what I’d watch and even then I’d like to turn them off from month to month.

Perhaps an option that allows 15 channels for 25 dollars of the users choice with each additional channel being a little bit more.


     

    + nirojan45 on November 12th, 2015 at 10:16 am said:

    The first 3 channels on your list: Fox, CBS & NBC (I’m assuming NBS is an error), would be difficult to do on a nationwide basis, since those are networks. That means they have local affiliates and are more difficult to sign up (especially if you live in a small market). All the other channels on your list (from AMC to CNN) have national channels, with some EST/PST options, that should absolutely be available on a nation-wide basis. Hopefully Playstation Vue will have a “skinny bundle” option similar to sling box and more al la carte options too!


     

    + KazeEternal on November 12th, 2015 at 1:03 pm said:

    @Nirojan45

    It shouldn’t be that difficult since those options are already available in the other 3 tiers. Honestly all I need is the programming for the nationwide content. Could careless about the local contents broadcasting.


     

    + mac6375 on November 12th, 2015 at 5:55 pm said:

    The problem with the local networks, is that each has local affiliates. This is why they are launching in different markets. Sling TV can be nationwide simply because they don’t do those networks. Though I guess if Sony wanted, they could have those affiliates as an optional add-on, and launch the rest nationwide. But then again, their intent is to be truly competitive against cable. Sling is fine for what it is, but it is not on par with Vue, plain and simple. Especially now that they will be adding Disney networks.

    I would use this service if it was in my area (Kansas City/St Louis) area. I live in Springfield, MO.

    Also supporting Chromecast is really important to me and also to the PlayStation Vue service to grow.

    Especially when the new Chromecast device’s are out and only cost $35 a piece.

    How about promote a Free Google Chromecast for ever Paid Subscription and the App be support both on Android and iOS via Chromecast. Your service would widely become a #1 hit.

This is great news but I have no way of enjoying this service because it isn’t available in my city. Every time I see PS Vue articles it just frustrates me. It will be nice when it goes National because I can then try it out for myself and form my own opinion. Sony if you want this service to be competitive and something new that EVERYONE MUST HAVE you have to lower the prices even further. Good luck with the Nation wide launch.

When will the PS TV, and hopefully also the PS Vita, get PS Vue support? It’s particualrly ironic that the Playstation TV doesn’t have access to Playstation’s TV service. Please address this situation!

Also, please add Netflix to the PS TV already. Even the PS Vita has access to Netflix and is ridiculous that the PS TV doesn’t, specially considering its role as an equivalent to other TV streaming devices. Without Netflix it isn’t surprising all that the PS TV simply can’t compete head on with the alternatives.

Sorry, but I don’t need 50 plus channel when I only need 4 or 5. Not going spend $50 – $60 for channels I don;t want. Give me a choice of channel I can choose from and only charge me for those channel. This is why I don’t have cable or DirecTV. Stop forcing us 50 or 100 channel and charging us high price like cable company do. Give us a choice!!! Other then that Vue is useless to me.

    I completely agree Phenix–Nguyen. I was hoping PS Vue was going to be an à la carte system. Let me pay $2 per channel and $5 for premium channels. Let me pay $20 for the exact 7 channels I want.

    As it is, PS Vue is just a streaming “cable” service. If I wanted this kind of service, I would just have cable. If I had cable, I wouldn’t need this service. As far as I can tell PS Vue is fulfilling a need that doesn’t exist.

    Sony, Please consider an à la carte pricing structure. You do that and you gain customers.

    Oh, and get this on PS-TV please. That little guy needs some love.

Good for price reductions. Still need to get lower, or better options to unbundle.

I know the way that industry works is to get one hot channel people want but force you to offer them all for a super high price, but if you want to be successful, you need to get them to remove that.

When you can beat Sling, at price for channels, I will drop them and sign on.

Not impressed, pleased, enthusiastic, or encouraged by this announcement.

PlayStation Vue should have been on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV from day one. To see this coming to devices outside of the Sony ecosystem before it has been fully developed on Sony hardware does not put a good outlook on the service or Sony hardware.

PlayStation Vue should have been a killer app that helped push PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV into competition with Roku, Amazon, Google, and Aple, but now it is an enemy of its own ecosystem.

Quite a disappointing move. I thought things were starting to come together at Sony, but this is making me seriously rethink my stance.

I find it quite strange that Amazon is the first third party set top box to get PlayStation Vue support since Amazon is a content competitor with Amazon Instant Video. Roku would have made the most since to expand to first but any kind of expansion is welcome.

I hate the fact that you have to have a credit card on file for this. Having funds/adding funds to your PSN Wallet with PS Vue auto-renew an on/off toggle option should be the way to go. I do not have to have a credit card on file for my PS+ subscription. If the funds are in my PSN Wallet, its deducted out and renewed for the year. PS Vue should operate the same way.
