Sony has just launched PlayStation Vue, their streaming TV service, on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The PlayStation Vue service offers individual channels, such as SHOWTIME, Epix, and Fox Soccer Plus, as well as multi-channel packages in select cities. Multi-channel packages come in three tiers with the 50+ channel “Access” package costing $49.99 per month, the 60+ channel “Core” package costing $54.99 per month, and the 85+ channel “Elite” package costing $64.99 per month. These multi-channel plans are currently only available in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. The channels included in each package vary from city to city and include live local television in some areas. PlayStation Vue also provides a cloud DVR service where you can tag your favorite shows and all aired episodes of those shows will be available on-demand for up to 28 days. Sony is offering a 30-day free trial for SHOWTIME and Epix, and a 7-day free trial for their multi-channel plans. Additionally, you can get a free Fire TV Stick after paying for the first month of their Core ($54.99) or Elite ($64.99) plan.
