PlayStation Vue

What you need to know

  • PlayStation Vue appears to be down across the country and on multiple devices.
  • Users are seeing a Error 5011 code.
  • PSVue also went down hard in mid-July.

Ask anyone what their No. 1 complaint about streaming video is, and there's a good chance they'll say "reliability." And reliability is something folks on PlayStation Vue apparently are dealing with this morning.

Reports on Reddit and Twitter point to a fairly significant outage of Sony's live video service.

Some users are reporting that they're able to fix the problem by cycling their internet connection, or by uninstalling and reinstalling the PlayStation Vue app. Here's what Sony has to say about that 5011 error:

You are receiving the 5005, 5007, 5008, 5009, 5010, 5011, or 5012 error code because you are having an issue with your internet connection or connection to PlayStation™Network and access to PlayStation™Vue.

Sony's PlayStation network status page, however, hasn't yet acknowledged any outages.

While massive network outages certainly are less common than, say, an occasional hiccup, it's been a little less than two months since the last time PSVue went down this hard.
