PlayStation Vue Finally Posts a Warning About The Shutdown In Its App




, ,

Back in October Sony announced that PlayStation Vue is shutting down on January 30th, 2020. This news came after it was reported that Sony had tried to find someone to buy the service earlier this year. Now Sony has finally posted a warning inside the PlayStation Vue app notifying customers that it will shut down PlayStation Vue in January. Sony had previously sent out an email and posted it on its website. Though many subscribers seem to have missed the email and never visit the website.

Here is the message posted in the PlayStation Vue app:

Sony says they won’t charge PlayStation Vue customers after December 31st, 2019. Current subscribers will be able to keep their service until January 30th, 2020.

“Today we are announcing that we will shut down the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. Unfortunately, the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected,” Sony in a statement on their website. “Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business.”

Sony went on to say that they “are very proud of what PlayStation Vue was able to accomplish. We had ambitious goals for how our service could change how people watch TV, showcasing PlayStation’s ability to innovate in a brand-new category within the Pay TV industry. We want to thank all of our customers, some of whom have been with us since PlayStation Vue’s launch in 2015.”

According to reports, PlayStation Vue still has about 500,000 subscribers. That is on the low end of live TV streaming services compared to Hulu, YouTube TV, and Sling TV who all have over 2 million subscribers. But 500,000 subscribers is below what some analysts have reported and would suggest that PlayStation Vue may have lost subscribers after their most recent price hike.

Now though these remaining 500,000 subscribers will finally have no excuse not to know about the upcoming shutdown of PlayStation Vue.
