Today Sony announced that PlayStaition Vue will now allow you to watch up to three live channels — all on one screen. Sony describes this as a great way to catch several live games at once from TNT, TBS, TruTV and CBS. You can also use this feature for any live TV channel available on Vue, such as watching a mix of live news programs or live events at once.
Multi-view will be available on the PlayStation 4 starting today. The new feature gives you the option to watch and listen to a main TV channel and view up to two additional channels at the same time. Keep an eye on all the action and enjoy mixing and matching your favorite channels.
To use this feature, just press and hold X on any live TV program from the Guide or Live TV row of the home screen to open up the selection screen for multi-view. A menu will pop up to give you an option of using either two or three multi-view screens. You can select any other live programing from the Live TV strand and start viewing multiple programs at once. The main screen in multi-view will contain audio of the programming.
Sony says that soon, real-time sports scores will be added to help you know the games to watch. You can also turn off spoiler alerts if you are waiting to watch the big game.
No word on if this will come to other streaming players.
You can find the full announced on the PS Vue Blog.
