A week ago, Sony has promised that it will release its PlayStation Vue TV streaming service on Android and it finally happened two days ago. With this new application, Android users who have a PlayStation Vue subscription will be able to watch TV channels on their smartphones or tablets. In addition, Sony has announced new features and updates for its PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles.
Android users can find the PlayStation Vue app on the Google Play store or on APK Mirror, from where they will download it for free. The application features real-live cast support and it can be used by any existing Vue subscriber, so if you haven’t registered already, go to the official PlayStation website and enter your credentials there.
The service will cost you $30/month for 55+ channels or $40/month for 60+ channels, plus $5/month (“Core” offers regional sports), or $15/month (“Elite”, but you’ll get 100+ total channels) which represent the step-up packages. However, if you’re undecided if PlayStation Vue is worth your money, Sony will offer you a free seven-day trial, and this can be done through your PS3 or PS4. Also, you’re required to own a Vue TV device (Amazon Fire TV or Roku streaming player) in order to set up your profile. You will watch your favorite channels from your Android smartphone or tablet, as well, but the application doesn’t seem to work on Android TV devices.
As for the new features added in PlayStation Vue for PlayStation 4, we’ll tell you that the new video thumbnail guide allows you to keep an eye on what you’re currently watching while scrolling through the Guide. Another new feature added on PS4 and PS3 is a new quick navigation, while the menu is displayed over a show, allowing users to access some places much quicker, to jump to the last channel, Search, Guide, My Shows or Explore. To launch Quick Navigation, you will press the touchpad on DualShock 4 or you’ll hold down Triangle on DualShock 3.
