PlayStation Vue

One of the biggest questions you'll ask when it comes to switching to live streaming video is "can I watch the same channels I did before?" The answer is yes. And no. And it depends. All of the major services overlap a bit, and each of them also tends to have something exclusive as well.

For the full side-by-side list, check out the Streaming Channel Matrix. But in this post we're going to take a look at PlayStation Vue directly. PlayStation Vue has four plans, ranging from $39.99 a month to $74.99 a month. The plans add channels as the price increases — so you can easily see what it is you get — and what it is you might still be missing — as you build up.

Here's a look at every channel that's currently available on PlayStation Vue:

PlayStation Vue add-on channels

In addition to the channels you get through one of the PS Vue plans, there also are a several add-on channels available. That's helpful because you can add on things like HBO or Showtime and still watch them through the PlayStation Vue app — no having to hop around to some other application.

Here are all of the add-on channels that you can get through PlayStation Vue:

  • Sports Pack ($10): This'll get you Bases Loaded, ESPN Classic, Goal Line, the Longhorn Network, MLB Strike Zone, NESN National (that's New England sports), NFL Red Zone and Outside TV.
  • HBO MAX Pack ($21.99 a month): That's HBO and Cinemax in one.
  • HBO ($15): The standalone sub for HBO.
  • Cinemax ($15): The standalone sub for Cinemax.
  • Premium Pack ($13.99): You get EPIX Hits and Showtime.
  • Showtime ($10.99): The standalone sub for Showtime.
  • EPIX Hits ($3.99): A decent movie add-on.
  • Español Pack ($4.99): Spanish-language channels.
  • Fox Soccer Plus ($14.99): Live worldwide soccer (and rugby, which isn't soccer but is still way cool).
  • HI-YAH! ($2.99): Martial-arts and Asian action movies.
