PlayStation Vue’s Head of Product Dan Myers went to the PlayStation Blog to announce that Sony’s television streaming service is now available on Apple TV. Subscribers to the television streaming service can now use it to watch shows on Apple’s device provided they have a fourth generation Apple TV. They just have to download the app from the App Store and login to their account.
Here are the specifics, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog:
Starting today, PlayStation Vue will be supported on Apple TV (4th generation), leveraging Apple TV’s latest hardware to create an innovative experience. You will be able to take advantage of Apple TV’s Siri Remote and easy navigation with touch, while enjoying PlayStation Vue’s sleek look and feel. PlayStation Vue brings popular programming to Apple TV, from live sports networks like ESPN and NFL Network, to premium channels like AMC, FX, HBO, and Showtime.
If you already have an existing PlayStation Vue account, you can link your subscription to Apple TV and start streaming right away. If you’re new to PlayStation Vue, you can sign up for one of several plan options through the PlayStation Vue website and link your account to Apple TV, without the need of a PlayStation console. Plans start at $29.99, or $39.99 in select cities, so head over to our website and enter your zip code to see the plans available in your area.
By all accounts, PlayStation Vue is a solid service for anyone considering cutting the cord, so it’s great to see that people can now use it in conjunction with their Apple TV. This is all part of Sony’s plans to make the streaming service more wildly available, and this is certainly a step in the right direction.
