PS Vue offers the live local feeds of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC in their respective owned-and-operated markets, and recently has been adding CBS local feeds from other broadcast groups, including Sinclair, Raycom, Meredith Corp., and Midwest Television, in certain markets.
In areas where it doesn’t offer certain live local broadcast TV feeds, PS Vue’s national “Slim” packages, launched last March, provide next-day, on-demand access to shows from those broadcasters.
Hulu recently signed a deal with CBS for an OTT TV service that will debut soon and compete with other virtual MVPD offerings that include PS Vue, DirecTV Now and Sling TV.
PS Vue supports several streaming platforms, including Apple TV (fourth generation), Web browsers, Android TV devices, PS4 and PS3 consoles, Roku devices, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Fire TV boxes and the Fire TV Stick, and the Google Chromecast streaming adapter.
