Today at around 4:30 PM Eastern Sony officially shutdown PlayStation Vue. A simple message on the site says “We regret to inform you that Sony Interactive Entertainment has discontinued the PlayStation Vue service as of January 30, 2020.” On apps it suggestions you look at fuboTV, Hulu, Philo, and Sling TV.
If you’ll miss PlayStation Vue here are a few options:
Try YouTube TV for $49.99
Many PlayStation Vue subscribers were happy with the DVR feature which allowed users to record up to 500 programs and saved content for up to 28 days. YouTube TV offers unlimited DVR storage. As long as you’re subscribed, recordings are saved for 9 months. YouTube TV also recently added support for PlayStation 4, so if you were using the game console as a streaming device, you can easily make the switch.
