CBS may not be ready to team up with DirecTV Now but that has not stopped it from working with Sony’s PlayStation Vue.
Late last fall Sony announced that more local channels would be coming to its live TV streaming service PlayStation Vue. Since that announcement it has been quietly adding new local channels, especially CBS stations.
Now roughly 50% of all PlayStation Vue subscribers have access to CBS as part of their package.
CBS is not stopping there. Last week it was announced that CBS and Hulu have teamed up to work together on Hulu’s new live TV streaming service. This partnership and the growing partnership with Sony marks a firm change in direction from CBS’s history of hesitance to work with live TV streaming services.
Hopefully other networks follow suit and start to partner more with streaming services. While 90% of Americans can access their local channels for free through an antenna, millions still cannot access local channels.
Would you like to have your locals on PlayStation Vue or one of the other live TV streaming services? Write your local channel and let it know you want access to its content online.
