    I know it is a pipe dream right now, but get the NFL package, and I’ll switch over in a heartbeat.

    • You can buy it separately now. Sunday ticket can be purchased as standalone now. I’ve used it the last two years.

    • Can we PLEASE! get this in Louisiana already!? We are begging here! At least baton rouge and new Orleans to start. Please PlayStation!!

    • When will this be rolled out nationwide?? I live in wv and been waiting for this since was announced sucks it’s not open to everyone.

  • Absolutely loving the service since making the switch over a month ago, not only did it save me money from Cable, the service, and user interface is by far the best out there, not to mention the amazing DVR features using the cloud. Now with ESPN and the Disney owned channels such as ABC, it is a spectacular service. Definitely recommend to anyone that has it in their area.

  • Will this even come to Canada?

  • Expand the service nationwide already…

    • We’re working to add Vue to more cities. Stay tuned.

    • Stop adding cities and start adding regions at least. Not living in a major city, you’ll never get to me at this rate.

    • What happened to giving Vue to all of the US by the end of 2015? It’s now March 2016 and nothing, I have been waiting over a year for this.

  • I’m ready to sign up for Core (assuming it has MASN/MASN2), you just need to make it available to me! An ETA for the Baltimore area would be nice.

  • Funny thing, I got a coupon for the Elite Package when i went to PSX in December. I WANT to use it but I need PSVue to come to Atlanta areas. I live in Newnan, GA, that’s about 45 minutes outside ATL.

  • Almost have all the channels I care for. And at 39.99! This is awesome. I will be getting this soon w/ showtime. Idk if it’s possible but add the CW and HBO please.

  • This looks really nice but hasn’t this been out for almost a year now? When will it come to the rest of the US and what about adding support for android devices and the Vita?

  • Only channel missing for me is CW Network but that’s covered with Hulu. Access Package for me once it’s available in my area.

    • You could try the CW app, I use it to watch episodes of “The 100” all the time.

  • This is a fantastic service, really hoping for a nationwide rollout. Excited for everyone else to see what a great service this is.

    Im hoping the delay is just Sony fine-tuning to make it the best product it can be.

  • I dumped DirecTV last month for Vue, and I’m very happy to have these channels again! Missed the Oscars live, but other than that, I’ve sacrificed very little. This is a really good value for those where its available. Still trying to config the WiFi in my house so the PS3 running Vue in my bedroom works as well as the PS4 in the living room, but other than that, the service is a no-brainer. I’ve recommended to others.

  • arnoldmcguire335

    BIG YES!!! FINALLY! That took so long since the late 2015 announcement… But still hyped! Thank you Sony!

  • I’m still waiting on the NBCSN to watch some of the LA Kings games. Until then I dont think I can switch over even though I love the service. Just one more Channel!

    • NBC Sports Network? Should be there with the core package. I watch it all the time for hockey and F1.

    • Gruntface25

      I watch a lot of soccer and hockey on NBCSN – they’ve had this channel for months and that includes use of the app.

    • I must be blind or didn’t see the updated list on the one I was seeing with nbcsn. Thanks! Looks like ill be adding Vue now!

  • PLEASE RELEASE A ROKU APP!!!!!! Im in the chicago area and would kill to ditch SlingTV for this but I need a whole home solution, cant depend on just the PS4. Lets go sony, if you have amazon then roku should be straight forward!

    • I know its not Roku, but I bought Amazon fire sticks for two TVs in the house, and Vue runs like a champ on them. They’re only like $35. Is Sling not good? I was considering before I decided on Vue.

    • I can’t speak for the OP, but I have SlingTV for a year now. It has had a few issues, mostly during heavy usage times, but I think they have added more ability to stream, as it’s been a month or so since I’ve had a glitch during streaming. Watching Bein Sports right now as I type this.

  • Natureboy99

    Still waiting on Seattle area.

    • Took the words out of my mouth. Been exploring options from cable for a bit. If this comes to Seattle, I’m probably in.

    • Also waiting on Seattle, although I’m not likely to stick with it unless they make a tvOS app for Apple TV. I don’t want to buy 1 or 2 more PS4’s just to watch TV, plus it sounds like a hair dryer when it’s working hard.

  • Still waiting on my city Indianapolis, IN. By the way Im still waiting on HBO GO app to work in this city also.. stupid cable company X some thing?

  • petethepanda

    Any word on The CW? They went and started making some of the best shows on TV.

  • LiquidGotti

    will we get a ESPN native app for the ps4?

  • Signed up for a month, good move on your part. I would like to see another plan added in the future with less channels as well. Something in the $19.99 range as Sling TV does. This is a good first step though.

  • Not having ABC and CW is what has kept me from getting PS Vue. Now you just need to get CW.

    The price drop is really really good. Hope to maybe see the price come down even more at some point

  • Awesome news! Please expand to more cities, I can’t wait to drop Sling TV and give you money

  • Skater_Ricky

    I’d love to try this service out. Hopefully someday it will come to Springfield, Missouri. I’d also like to see a $9.99 package deal. Maybe only local channels in my area or something like that.

    Glade to see a reduced price and more channels added. I’m only interested in Access package because I’m not into sport’s.

    Hopefully you can get CW added to the channel line up.

    Not sure if it’s already support with a dedicated PlayStation Vue Android App but Google Chromecast support would be awesome on the App.

  • patthebaker321

    If you guys could add team sports channels for specific regions that would be PERFECT! Such as Time Warner Cable Sportnet for my Los Angeles Lakers, I’d be in immediately!!! Also HBO. NBA TV would be nice, but not a must. PLEASE DO THIS PlayStation/Sony!

    • That weird, I get my to watch the Warriors, maybe playstation needs to work out a deal with time Warner. The more subcribers the more likely they can work out a deal. Good luck

  • I don’t care about the price being cheaper, it was already a great value. PS Vue needs to be available on the Central Coast of California, there’s a huge geographical area where Comcast is literally the only TV service provider, so those of us who will not pay them for their terrible service are stuck with absolutely no options for broadcast television, having to cobble together a mesh of streaming app subscriptions is really tedious and annoying.

  • I trialed the service when it first launched and was unimpressed.

    Have any of the following issues been dealt with:
    1> Several programs not available to watch because of no internet rights, even when trying to watch live
    2> Arbitrary, per-channel based control of trick features (this channel lets you restart the show when you tune in, this other channel doesn’t even let you rewind or fast forward). None of the services Vue is supposed to replace have these restrictions.
    3> Super anemic on-demand/catch up content. Sure you can DVR from today into the future but want last week’s episode? Good luck!

    Maybe I’m just past the idea of appointment viewing and not being a sports fan, this has nothing to offer me that other streaming services offer.

    • At 1st launch, alot of bugs, less now but they are working on improving. If I was you, I’d wait till it launches nation wide, maybe by then, most bugs will be worked out and channel line ups will be fully stocked

  • Wow. This has everything I need with the exception of Univision (Spanish programming).

  • Bring this to Las Vegas already!

  • I really don’t care if the Disney channel gets added. I’m still gonna miss the days when the Disney channel airs Disney shows (DuckTales, TaleSpin, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, you get the idea), Disney movies, Movies/shows not made by Disney but are Disney-related/resembling Disney, and it is not plagued the teen star BS.

  • Will canada get psvu?

  • Thank you, Sony. Service on the PlyStation Vue is getting better by adding more channels and reducing the Acess Package by $10. I am happy with this decision you made. Keep it Up :)

  • deadendblues

    Awesome! I was just thinking of cancelling due to lack of NBA games but now with a reduced price plus more channels. I am without a doubt staying on. Only one thing missing from the line up now and that his MLB network. I’d love and pay for that channel

  • Please get CW on board. Think that’s really the only notable channel you are missing that you can get for free OTA

  • CrusaderForever

    Please add this amazing service to the Minneapolis/St Paul area pronto!

  • I cannot wait to drop DirectTv for Vue. I know Sony plans on getting this to more cities but please tell me Phoenix AZ is on that list. I will subscribe to Elite package the minute that happens!!!

  • make it available in Columbus, OH and I’ll get it!

  • Please bring this to the Boston/Massachusetts area. I would drop the overpriced/underdelivered Comcast service.

  • Nice to see so much time and effort being put in to this service that you only offer to your VIP customers while the rest of us are left looking in from the outside.

    Id much rather have some stand alone apps for the biggest sports leagues NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, etc.
    and make them available to EVERYONE.

  • ModernTenshi04

    I’d love to give this service a try, and possibly switch, if you guys ever bring it to the Columbus, Ohio area. Adding these channels and lowering the price puts it right in the sweet spot for what I’m looking for.

    I also wouldn’t mind being able to either pay for added “Cloud DVR” storage/duration, or the ability to use the built-in storage of my PlayStations to handle that as well.

    But yeah, the sooner you guys get this rolled out nationwide the sooner I can start giving you more money.

  • Will PS Vue ever come to PS Vita & PS TV? It is ironic that the PlayStation TV service is not available on the PS TV.

  • I already loved the PS Vue service but love it even more today! The interface and cloud dvr are very easy to use and visually appealing. A huge step up from the traditional cable/satellite providers. I really hope more and more people sign up so the service can continue to grow. I will be spreading the word.

    The only thing that people might not be aware of is you can sign up for Playstation Vue without a Playstation. The name might confuse some people and need to be changed to appeal to the mainstream and gain more subscribers. Not many people know you can just use an Amazon Fire TV or Chromecast.

  • Awesome! The only thing that would make this service perfect for me is an Android app for my phone. I still don’t understand how there is a Chromecast app but no Android app.

  • shadysaiyanz

    I’d love to switch to this and i’ve been waiting since it was even announced all that time ago. Still can’t though because im in Virginia and not New York or Florida… :\

  • So its just another cable service. You still cant pick and choose which channels you want and pay for just those. No thank you. Pointless service

    • If you say so but the price is what it is with no added tax or fees. So it’s $44.99 a month and that’s what I’m charged, no extra or hidden fees like other cable companies

  • I’d this comes to norther California I would sing up instantly

    • I live in Santa rosa. How far North are you? I did hear it’s not in Sacramento yet but sure it’s coming soon

  • Woke up to find I have abc and espn now and on top of that, my bill dropped $10 a month, SAY WHAAATTT? Love vue.

  • KevinAndreas

    When are we going to see PlayStation Vue in Denmark?? I would love it !! :-)

  • DARKSPARDA4

    All it needs now is the CW and it will have everything I want

  • Excellent, now there are only 2 more channels that i want, Univision Network and Fox Deportes.

  • StabieMcStabStab

    Just need The CW and Im in

  • TalesXGundam

    I just got cable because I wanted TCM (I love classic movies), but I’m already regretting it. I had to pay extra for HD and I don’t even have DVR. I’d kill to be able to purchase Vue’s core plan. It’s such a better deal. Hurry up and release it nationwide. I’m sure you’ll get a good number of people that are willing to switch over. Cable is awful.

    • sscamaroguy

      Finally a price drop and espn! Any chance now to get local wgn for chicago sports? History channel. Hbo would be nice also.i have been using it for 2 months now getting use to it but when are you planning on doing logitech harmony controls?
