With PlayStation Vue, we strive to deliver the best TV experience, and have made numerous upgrades since launching our service two years ago. For avid sports fans and those new to the PS Vue service, we’ve put together a recap of some of the top features and enhancements that make the sports viewing experience even better.
Multi-view on PlayStation 4
One of our most popular features, multi-view, allows users to stream up to three live shows – all on one screen. Just press and hold X on any live TV program from the Guide or Live TV row of the home screen to open up the selection screen for multi-view. Through the pop up menu, choose either two or three multi-view screens. Select any other live programing from the Live TV strand and start viewing multiple programs at once. To switch programs within the multi-view screen, press Square on your DualShock 4. To move a program to the main screen, just highlight the smaller screen and press Square.
Live Scores on PS4, PS3, Android, Amazon Fire TV and PC/Mac Web Browsers
Real-time sports scores let you keep up with your favorite games at a glance. You can turn the feature on or off in the Settings menu depending on your preference.
Simultaneous Streaming for Multiple Devices
PlayStation Vue provides the most simultaneous streams at no extra charge. This makes it easy for sports fans to watch several programs at the same time on multiple PS Vue-supported devices.
PlayStation Vue is supported on PS4, PS3, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Android TV, iOS and Android mobile devices, and on the web through PC and Mac desktop browsers. Google Chromecast is also supported via compatible Android and iOS devices.
Powerful Cloud DVR with No Scheduling Conflicts
If you’re unable to catch the games live, you can save programs to My Shows and PS Vue’s powerful cloud DVR will record the games available from that league. For example, if you add NFL to My Shows, PS Vue will record live NFL games available in your area.
Additionally, you can watch select recorded games outside of the home with our recently enhanced out of home DVR feature.
League Pages on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and PC/Mac Web Browsers
You can see upcoming events for a specific league, sorted by schedule order of what’s coming up next. Leagues include: NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, Premier League and more.
Other User Interface Enhancements
We’ve made some additional enhancements to the UI to make it easier for you to see the games that are on TV.
- Sports section on the home screen gets you to all the top sports programming at a glance.
- Team vs. team logos let you quickly see the teams that are playing on the program titles.
Sports App Authentication
You can access programming from dozens of mobile apps or websites, simply by logging in with your PlayStation Network ID. The mobile apps and websites are developed by network programmers and are a separate offering from PlayStation Vue, but can be used at no additional cost. Some popular apps and websites for sports fans include Watch ESPN, Fox Sports, Golf Channel, MLB Network, NBC Sports Network, NFL Network, NFL Redzone, and more.
