PlayStation Vue, Sony’s live TV streaming service, isn’t just available on the company’s gaming consoles as the name might have you believe. It’s available on a wide variety of platforms including the Apple TV. The Apple TV is now getting a feature which has been available on the PS4 app for PlayStation Vue: multi-picture mode.
Sony is rolling out the multi-picture feature for PlayStation Vue on the Apple TV starting today. It will roll out the feature to the set-top box by way of an update for the app. The multi-picture mode allowed users to have three channels running on the screen at the same time. Sony is going to improve it further for the Apple TV by supporting four channels at the same time instead of three on the PlayStation 4.
Multi-view happens to be one of the service’s most popular features on the PlayStation 4 so the company is finally bringing it to the Apple TV. Sony is also rolling out updates for the feature on PS4.
The first is real-time program changing which means that users no longer have to start from the beginning when they have to add a different program. The second update brings new filters with Sports and News getting dedicated tabs.
