In shocking fashion – Sony has announced the ending of its beloved television service. Starting at the top of the new year, PlayStation Vue will be meeting its untimely demise. One would wonder why this service, in particular, would be coming to an end. The service has been highly promoted since it’s 2015 launch, even upon this most recent announcement of the shutdown. Sony provided some answers via the PlayStation Blog.
“Today we are announcing that we will shut down the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. Unfortunately, the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected. Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business.” – PlayStation Blog
From a personal standpoint, it’s sad to see the service go. I’ve used the service several times, and it’s always been smooth seamless and convenient. PlayStation Vue will officially shut down on January 30th, 2020.
