Sony’s TV streaming service is no longer an exclusive for Sony products, as the PlayStation Vue app has just been made available for Android TV.
So if you have a NVIDIA Shield or Xiaomi Mix Box lying around the house, all you need to do is get a PlayStation Vue account and make sure you’re Android TV is running Android OS 4.4 or higher. After you get these boxes thicked, just go ahead and download the PS Vue app and reap the benefits.
Since its launch, the PlayStation Vue has been making friends with the Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Chromecast. And now it appears that the service will become available on PC and Mac, through a browser. For the time being it doesn’t seem like Sony is looking to develop a native app, so PC and Mac users who want to take advantage of the service will have to make-do with the browser option.
The PlayStation Vue service is available for customers in the United States at the moment. No official date has been given for a Canadian launch, but users are keeping their fingers crossed.
In the States, Sony asks for $30 a month for a package that includes 55+ channels in some regions. In other locations where Sony has setup deals with broadcast stations, lucky users are asked to pay only $10 a month.
