Best answer: You only get three devices to stream on when you start your account, but after you set a home device you can increase that number to five total devices.

How the screens work with PlayStation Vue

If you want to stream on more than three devices at a time you'll need to set up a Home Device on PlayStation Vue. Doing this will allow you to stream on up to five at a time, which grants you two extra devices to use.

Unfortunately, even if you unlock the two extra devices, you'll only be able to use the original three devices outside of your home. The additional screens are for in-home use only. That means you can stream with three devices in-home while streaming two devices out-of-home (or five streams entirely in-home). Additionally, you'll only be able to set or change your home device up to three times.

What to do if you have too many devices

If you need to change a device that's connected to your PlayStation Vue account, or drop one device to add another, you'll need to do the following:

  1. Sign out of PlayStation Vue on your desired device.
  2. Wait 5 minutes.
  3. Turn on your new devices and log onto your PlayStation Vue account again.

Regardless of anything mentioned above, only one PlayStation 3 console will be able to stream at a time.

How to set your home device on PlayStation Vue

Any device besides a computer, Roku, or TV running a PlayStation Vue app can be set to your home device, but you can only have up to one home device at a time.

  1. Turn on the device you wish to set as your home device.
  2. Open the PlayStation Vue app.
  3. Open Settings.
  4. Select the Home Device option.
  5. Follow the steps on screen to set this device to your home device.

Now that you have your home device set up you can get right to enjoying five screens for streaming at once!

Why PlayStation Vue?

The rules and regulations of how to use your account and your devices may seem a little head-spinning, but the PlayStation Vue plans are actually pretty great. The basic package, at $45 a month, comes with 45 channels and access to AMC, CNN, Fox News, ESPN, Disney, and more! For $5 more a month, you also get access to MLB Network, NBA TV, NFL Network, and regional sports. With most streaming services, you're paying almost $10 a piece for the extra channels alone.

If you could see the device management explained above fitting your lifestyle, meaning you don't have many devices to attach or don't travel/share accounts with family across the nation, then you need PlayStation Vue. It has the best pricing to product ratio out there.
