Sony is bringing its PlayStation Vue internet TV service to additional devices. Vue is now available on Roku streaming devices and Roku TVs in the U.S., the company announced Tuesday on its blog.
In addition, PlayStation Vue will make its way to Android phones and tablets next week. Any device running Android 4.4 or higher will be able to run the Vue app, according to Sony.
PlayStation Vue offers consumers a cable-like TV experience, with packages starting at $30 a month. Vue’s biggest package, which offers access to more than 100 channels, can cost up to $55 in major metropolitan areas.
In addition to Android and Roku, Vue has already been available on Sony’s own PS3 and PS4 game consoles, Amazon Fire devices and iPhones and iPads. The latter have also been offering Chromecast support, which is coming to the Android mobile app as well.
