You may remember a couple of months back when Sony announced a new cloud based TV service, which was dubbed PlayStation Vue. Though the name suggests a PlayStation only app Vue will actually be available across various devices, including the likes of Apple’s iPad. Vue is essentially a TV catch up service and at the moment it looks like it will only be available in the US, as there hasn’t been any announcement of a worldwide release.
The release itself is pegged for early this year, though a date of when exactly has not been confirmed. The subscription price was also not announced by Sony, but it will be a monthly structured package. By offering Vue Sony will be going up against the likes of other US services, such as Hulu. Other channels are also going to offer their own streaming services, or already do. One example is HBO and its GO app, so it is unlikely Sony will be able to offer things like Game Of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire through Vue.
However there are some big networks on board with Sony including Viacom, Fox, NBC, and CBS.
