Sony Playstation Vue Will Be Shutting Down

Sony PlayStation Vue Will Be Shutting Down

In an official announcement on its PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced the shutdown of its PlayStation Vue service. According to Sony, “Today we are announcing that we will shut down the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. Unfortunately, the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected. Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business.”

Sony has also pointed customers to its PlayStation Store and also individual third-party media apps if they still wanted to access TV shows on their PlayStation consoles. Sony did not make any mention of selling off its PlayStation Vue business, so for now, it would be safe to assume that after the 30th of January, 2020, the service would be gone for good.
