Sony’s PS Vue streaming TV video service comes to desktop browsers
Sony is a brand that has branched out to pretty much every business division you can think of, from movies to manufacturing audio systems and equipment to a successful venture in the video game world with their PlayStation gaming console. Another endeavor by the giant which many might have not known about is the PS Vue.
For those unfamiliar with PS Vue, the service is Sony’s attempt at being a TV service provider. The service was first made available for the PlayStation and mobile devices (both iOS and Android), but now Sony decided to bring the feature to PC browsers as well. Among the compatible PC browsers we also find Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (version 10 and up) and the newcomer Microsoft Edge.
With PS Vue, you can access top TV stations you would get with any other TV service such as ESPN, NBC or Fox and you can also add other channels into the mix. The additional channels come separately and you can include the ones you want into your payment plan. The standard package will cost you $30/month.
One of the PS Vue’s features is the ability to minimize the channel window so that it becomes a smaller box in the corner of your screen. This allows you to keep browsing while also keeping an eye on the news, your favorite sports team, etc. This implementation only furthers the popularity of the mini-window, which is becoming a staple in media player functions.
PS Vue is only available in the US as of right now, so people outside of the US are unfortunately unable to get it.
