Internet TV is destined to be the next big thing, so it seems, many companies are investing heavily into developing these services in a bid to capture the market that has stepped away from traditional pay-TV services. Just yesterday Dish announced Sling TV its very own internet TV service that will cost $20 per month and give access to networks like CNN, TBS, ESPN and more. We know about the Sony PlayStation Vue internet TV service already but now it has been revealed that the PlayStation Vue release is destined for the first quarter of 2015.
The announcement came straight from Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai who is present at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 in Las Vegas. Vue is currently only available to a select group of users who got access through an invite system, much like how the PlayStation Now game streaming service was in its early days.
Sony will first launch the cloud-based PlayStation Vue TV service on its PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles before expanding it to the iPad and other devices from different manufacturers. The company has managed to get some of the big networks onboard, which are essential for any internet TV service, networks that will provide content include NBCUniversal, CBS, Fox, Viacom and more.
PlayStation Vue will be a monthly subscription service but so far Sony hasn’t confirmed how much it will ask subscribers to pay in order to use Vue.
