Sony is rolling out a TV streaming service, Playstation Vue, through their Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 consoles. Viewers will be able to access live TV and on-demand programming without a cable or satellite subscription. The service will debut as a Beta in New York this month, followed later by Chicago, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, and a commercial release in the 1st quarter of 2015. While the service will begin on Playstation consoles, Sony also announced it will extend to iPads in the future. 

The content provider lineup on offer is impressive: CBS, NBC, Fox, Discovery, Comedy Central, Spike, MTV, and associated networks. The big omission would be the Disney/ABC/ESPN family. Further details on the content providers and the Vue is after the jump where you can find a copy of Sony’s official press release

There are still some questions to be answered about the Vue, most importantly the pricing. However, Sony does state the service will be contract free and clear, with none of the hidden fees or installation costs associated with satellite and cable providers.
