We are now just less than a week away from PlayStation Vue shutting down and Amazon is not leaving anything to chance. Earlier today Amazon started to contact Fire TV owners who use PlayStation Vue to inform them that they need to switch soon.
Here is the email Amazon sent out today:
PlayStation Vue will be ending its service on January 30, 2020. You will no longer be automatically billed on a recurring monthly basis. In the meantime, you will have access to live and on demand programming until the service end date.
As an alternative, you can continue watching live programming and more with a paid subscription from Hulu, Sling TV, YouTube TV, or Philo. Download app on your Fire TV or Tablet.
If you’ve been a PlayStation Vue subscriber and have yet to switch to a new service, you have less than a week left. The good news is there are many great options out there.
Like PlayStation Vue, Hulu with Live TV offers the sports, news, and entertainment content many cord cutters want. If you’re looking for ACC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, Discovery channels, MSNBC, Fox News, and more, give Hulu a try. Hulu costs $54.99 a month after a free trial, below the price point of PlayStation Vue’s least expensive plan.
If you’re looking for a service that allows for multiple simultaneous streams, an excellent channel selection, and a similar channel lineup as PlayStation Vue, try YouTube TV, which allows you to create up to six profiles per account and stream up to three simultaneous streams. At $49.99 a month, the price point is the same as the PlayStation Access plan.
If you’re using PlayStation Vue to stay up to date with your favorite sports teams, you might want to try Sling TV, which has options for adding more sports channels with NBA League Pass and a Sports add on. Use Sling to watch NFL Network, NHL Network, NBA TV, and more. Sign up for Sling TV starting at $30 a month. Add on a sports package for an extra $10 or $15 a month.
Another sports-focused streaming service, FuboTV offers over 100 live channels, including local sports and news. Want to make sure you don’t miss a game? FuboTV includes 30 hours of Cloud DVR storage. With a price of $54.99 a month, FuboTV costs the same as the Core package from PlayStation Vue.
If sports aren’t your priority and you’re looking to save some money on your monthly subscription, try Philo. This streaming service has 59 live channels, including HGTV, Discovery, Nickelodeon, and Hallmark. You can try Philo without entering any credit card information. All you need is a mobile number to try the service for 48 hours. Philo costs $20 a month.
Vidgo is the newest live TV streaming service, and packages start at $39.99 a month. Vidgo offers access to many popular networks like ESPN and the NFL Network but on-demand and DVR features are listed as coming soon.
There you go… several great options to replace PlayStation Vue when it shuts down later this month. What service do you plan to switch to or what service did you switch to? Leave us a comment and let us know.
