Sony PlayStation Vue arrives on Android
If you’re a subscriber to Sony’s television streaming service PlayStation Vue, then you’re in luck! Soon you’ll be able to stream your favorite programs to your Android devices and control the PlayStation from your smartphone. We got a hint that this would be coming soon earlier last week, but we didn’t have a specific arrival date. Now we’re happy to report that the PlayStation Vue app has just hit the Play Store.
Newcomers to Vue might experience some initial difficulties, however. The app doesn’t have a sign-up capability, which is a bit odd for this sort of app. You’ll have to sign up online or through your PlayStation if you want in on these channels. Ratings in the Play Store indicate that this app is still a bit rough around the edges in several regards, but we can hope that the developers will continue to improve it now that it’s arrived on our favorite operating system.
For those not familiar with Vue, it’s essentially a television package that streams completely over the internet instead of going through traditional cable providers. Prices for the service range from $29.99 to $54.99 per month, depending on how many channels you want and how many premium movie services you’d like to have access to.
Since you can use the mobile app to either control the PlayStation app or to stream videos directly, you technically don’t even have to have a PlayStation 3 or 4 to make use of this service. Click the button below to grab it from the Play Store, and let us know what you think of PlayStation Vue in the comments below. Worth the money, or do you prefer sticking with other streamers?
