Sony announced that PlayStation Vue has expanded to Roku today, opening the live TV streaming service to one of the most popular streaming services on the market. Sony will also launch a mobile app on Android next week.
Dan Myers, head of product for PlayStation Vue, announced the news on the company’s blog:
We are happy to share that PlayStation Vue is expanding to Roku devices today, with support for Android smartphones and tablets launching next week. Since we’ve launched PlayStation Vue nationwide, we have heard from many of you that Roku and Android are the top devices you wanted us to add, so we’re pleased to make this a reality.
PlayStation Vue will be available on Roku Streaming Stick, Roku Streaming players, and Roku TV. If you already have an account, just download PlayStation Vue on your Roku device and start streaming.
If you don’t already have a PlayStation Vue account, you can sign up for the seven-day free trial option through the PlayStation Vue website, or through your PS4 or PS3.
Here are the plans we have available. For specific information on pricing and channel lineup in your city, including live local stations and regional sports programming, please visit psvue.com and type in your zip code.
The PlayStation Vue app will allow users to access PlayStation Vue from Android smartphones and tables (with OS v 4.4 and higher).
The announcement comes roughly a week after Sony previewed more than 50 new games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR at E3 in Los Angeles. The games and PlayStation VR are set to hit the market in October. PlayStation Vue’s expansion to other devices also comes before Hulu and other media companies are expected to release their own live streaming services in 2017.
