PlayStation Vue hits Amazon Fire TV, iOS Chromecast support soon

Sony’s emerging live TV streaming service PlayStation Vue is now available on Amazon’s Fire TV boxes and Fire TV Stick.

The disruptive, contract-free web TV service has only been available on PS3, PS4, iPhone and iPad until now, but the addition of Amazon’s devices brings the total to six.

The gaming giant has also announced Vue subscribers on iOS will be able
to stream to a Google Chromecast device using the PlayStation Vue
mobile app.

If you’re currently not a subscriber to PS Vue and don’t have the equipment necessary, Sony is offering a pretty sweet incentive. Anyone who signs up for a free trial of the Core and Elite packages will get a free Amazon Fire TV Stick and have their first month paid for.

That means, if you live in one of the cities where PS Vue is available, you absolutely have nothing to lose and plenty to gain by taking the service for a spin. The deal runs from November 15 for a limited time.

For everyone else, Sony is also cutting the prices for the Core package to $54.99 (from $59.99) and Elite to $64.99 (from $69.99).

PlayStation Vue is currently available in the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco Bay Area, and Miami TV markets.

Just this week it reached an agreement with Disney to bring 13 channels to the service, including the Disney Channel and the ESPN empire.

It already features a wide range of broadcast and pay TV content including full access to live local channels and on demand content from the likes of Fox, NBC, CBS, USA, Food Network, MTV, Comedy Central and many more.
