Playstation Vue is probably the best cord-cutter option available right now for those who still want some sort of semblance to Cable TV channels. It’s got more channels than Sling TV, and also has a Cloud DVR Service and even some local stations (depending on where you’re located at.)
The only problem? It was only available to those who had a Playstation 3 or 4, or those who had Amazon Fire TV. The service expanded to Roku, but Android TV was left in the dust. And the irony? Sony’s newer Bravia TV’s run Android TV.
Well, now it’s Android TV’s time to shine, Playstation Vue is available for Android TV.
Here’s some pricing if you’re not familiar.
- Access: 55+ channels, including live cable TV, movies, and sports channels for $29.99 per month ($39.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*).
- Core: 70+ channels, including all the channels from Access with the addition of live national and regional sports networks for $34.99 per month ($44.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*).

- Ultra: HBO and SHOWTIME, plus all the 100+ channels from Elite for $64.99 per month ($74.99 per month in cities with major live local broadcast stations*).
You will need to sign up using one of these devices.
You can download the new app (separate from the mobile app) here. I’ve already done this for the Shield TV and I’ll let you all know how it is later tonight.
