PlayStation Vue subscribers on the January 30th, will lose live TV service. But the death of Vue doesn’t mean PS4 users will have to move to different hardware for their live and on-demand fix, as YouTube TV is now available on the console. The service has a solid lineup of channels and DVR functions for $50 a month the same price as Vue’s cheapest bundle so the transition from Sony’s service to Google’s could be a relatively painless one.
YouTube TV is now available on PlayStation. You can download YouTube TV from the PlayStation Store right now. As usual, new customers are eligible for a free trial of the $50-per-month service. If you’ve used YouTube TV on other devices, the look and feel on PS4 should be pretty much identical.
Sling TV and other streaming TV apps should also be available we should expect them to join YouTube TV on PS4 as Vue’s shutdown approaches.
