As well as the web and Android TV devices, PlayStation Vue is also available on iOS, Android and Roku devices.

Subscribers can watch on five devices simultaneously, while the cloud-based DVR makes it possible to record hundreds of hours of content.

Plans start at $29.99 for 55 channels, all the way to $74.99 for the Ultra package with HBO, Showtime and local content.

Sony is yet to announce a similar scheme for the UK, but it is at the forefront of a growing movement in the United States.

PS Vue faces competition from Sling TV, and a new service from AT&T. Meanwhile, Apple, Amazon and Google are thought to be on the trail too.
