PlayStation Vue, Sony's OTT pay TV service for the PlayStation 3 and PS4 consoles, has launched service in Dallas-Fort Worth and Miami-Fort Lauderdale areas, Eric Lempel, VP of Sony Network Entertainment announced Thursday via this blog post.
He said all PS4 and PS3 owners there can now subscribe to PS Vue’s three multichannel packages – Access ($49.99 per month), Core ($59.99/month) and Elite ($69.99/month)
PS Vue has also launched multichannel service in Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco. Those packages also feature a cloud DVR.
PlayStation users also have access to the new OTT standalone version of Showtime ($10.99 per month or $8.99 for PlayStation Plus members ), and PS Vue plans to launch Fox Soccer Plus on an a la carte basis ($14.99 per month or $12.99 for PS Plus members) later this summer, but ahead of the upcoming season of the UEFA Champions League, Lempel noted.
Sony talked up its a la carte plans at the E3 show in June, also announcing that it will also offer a premium TV channel from Machinima as a standalone ($3.99 per month, or $1.99 per month for PS Plus members) or bundled with the PS Vue Elite package.
Sony has not announced subscriber totals for PS Vue, though Dwayne Benefield, VP and head of PS Vue, said in June at the NewBay Media Next TV Summit in Santa Monica that the rollout had “far exceeded expectations.”
