Thanks to the new multi-view feature released today, PlayStation Vue subscribers on PlayStation 4 can now watch up to three live channels at once on a single screen. As previewed in the above image, you’ll have one main TV channel (complete with audio), and you can view up to two additional channels at the same time.

After highlighting how useful this will be for March Madness starting next week, Dan Myers, Head of Product, said, “You can also use this feature for any live TV channel available on Vue, such as watching a mix of live news programs or live events at once.”

Here’s how to activate multi-view:

  1. Press and hold X on any live TV program from the Guide or Live TV row of the home screen to open up the selection screen for multi-view. A menu will pop up to give you an option of using either two or three multi-view screens.
  2. You can select any other live programming from the Live TV strand and start viewing multiple programs at once. The main screen in multi-view will contain audio of the programming.
  3. Press X to start any program. Press and hold X on any live program to start a multi-screen viewing experience.
  4. If you want to switch programs within the multi-view screen, press Square on your DualShock 4. To move a program to the main screen, just highlight the smaller screen and press Square.

A new feature coming soon to PlayStation Vue is real-time sports scores, Myers also revealed. If you’re waiting to watch a certain game, you’ll be able to turn off spoiler alerts.

PlayStation Vue is available in all 50 United States, and supported devices include PS4, PS3, Amazon Fire TV devices, Roku streaming devices, and Google Chromecast devices. You can learn more about PlayStation Vue by checking out the FAQ.
