Playstation vue logoLast month, PlayStation Vue rushed to strike new deals with AMC, Discovery, NBCUniversal, and Turner Networks. Sony did successfully get new deals, but it resulted in a $5 a month price hike for subscribers. Now Sony is warning that they have until the end of July to reach a new deal with the NFL Network or it will go dark on PlayStation Vue.

Here is the statement Sony posted on the PlayStation Vue website about these negotiations:

Most of the programming/content you watch on PlayStation™Vue is licensed from programmers for the right to air their networks/channels. Once these agreements near expiration, we enter into renewal discussions where we work hard to try and obtain the best value for our customers. Though infrequent, sometimes certain licenses will not be renewed, in which case PlayStation™Vue would no longer carry the affected channels or networks. This section will be updated periodically to list channels and networks coming up for renewal. Please note that the dates listed below are subject to change.

July 2019

    • NFL Network

Talks like this are not new. Typically, a deal is made without blackouts. And, if the NFL Network is dropped from PlayStation Vue that does not mean it couldn’t return in the future.

Cord Cutters News will post updates as we learn more about PlayStation Vue’s channel lineup.
