Sony to Discontinue the PlayStation Vue Service After January 2020

-

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it is discontinuing the PlayStation Vue service after January 30, 2020. The live TV streaming service launched in March of 2015.

“Over four years ago, we made a bold decision to change the rules and revolutionize the traditional TV-viewing experience in the U.S. with PlayStation Vue,” the company said today. “We set the bar high and sought to innovate an established industry by delivering a modern TV experience. By completely rethinking live and on demand television, we offered an incredible user experience that allowed viewers to discover and watch content in completely new ways.”

They added that “the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected. Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business.”

PlayStation fans can continue to access movie and TV content through the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 4 and via partnerships with top entertainment apps.

“We are very proud of what PlayStation Vue was able to accomplish. We had ambitious goals for how our service could change how people watch TV, showcasing PlayStation’s ability to innovate in a brand-new category within the Pay TV industry,” Sony said. “We want to thank all of our customers, some of whom have been with us since PlayStation Vue’s launch in 2015. We appreciate your continued support as we move through this transitional period and look toward the future.”
