Streaming tv and remoteToday, Sony announced that they will be shutting down PlayStation Vue on January 30, 2020. If you’ve been a PlayStation Vue subscriber, you’ll likely be looking for a new service to watch live TV and on-demand video. These are five alternatives to consider.


Like PlayStation Vue, Hulu with Live TV offers the sports, news, and entertainment content many cord cutters are looking for. If you’re looking for ACC Network, Big Ten Network, ESPN, Discovery channels, MSNBC, Fox News, and more, give Hulu a try. Hulu costs $44.99/month after a free trial, below the price point of PlayStation Vue’s least expensive plan.

YouTube TV

If you’re looking a service that allows for multiple simultaneous streams, an excellent selection of channels, and a similar channel lineup as PlayStation Vue try YouTube TV. The streaming service allows you to create up to 6 profiles per account and up to 3 simultaneous steams. At $49.99/month, the price point is the same as the PlayStation Access plan.

Sling TV

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 for $40/month after 3 months at just $25/month. Add on a sports package for an extra $10/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/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 subscriptions, try Philo. This streaming service has 58 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. After a week long free trial, Philo costs $20/month.
