Today PlayStation Vue announced that they are adding BBC America and NBA TV starting tomorrow, as well as VICE and more local broadcast stations from CBS and Fox coming soon.
Yet there is a catch, starting at 12:01am Eastern Time on November 11, all Viacom-owned networks will no longer be available on PlayStation Vue. This includes channels such as Comedy Central, Spike, and MTV. Sony said they have “determined that removing the bundle of channels from Viacom is the best way for us to continue to offer the most compelling value to our fans”.
From our understanding the following channels are being removed:
Yet there is no change in price:
- 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*).
- Ultra: HBO and SHOWTIME, plus all the 100+ channels from Elite for $64.99 per month ($74.99 per month in cities with major live local broadcast stations*).
Sony went on to add that they “are continuing to add value and flexibility with multiple plan options to choose from, as well as a la carte options such as recent additions of HBO and Cinemax”.
