So long, PlayStation Vue. Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it will be shutting down the streaming television service on January 30, 2020 due to the intricacies of the Pay TV industry and expense of content/network deals. This was foreshadowed in a report last week that claimed Sony was trying to find a buyer for Vue.
We are very proud of what PlayStation Vue was able to accomplish. We had ambitious goals for how our service could change how people watch TV, showcasing PlayStation’s ability to innovate in a brand-new category within the Pay TV industry. We want to thank all of our customers, some of whom have been with us since PlayStation Vue’s launch in 2015.
