Playstation Vue Adds NBA TV and VICE, Drops Viacom Channels Like Comedy Central and MTV

Playstation Vue and the other cord-cutting crowd of services are bound to experience regular changes as this new type of TV service attempts to reach a growing audience. For early adopters, frequent drops and adds in channels is something we should probably expect to happen as these companies deal with pricing, value, and appeal. Like today, Playstation Vue announced that its channel line-up is already going through a bit of a shake-up.  (more…)

Playstation Vue Lands on Android TV!

I know what you are thinking, “Why the excitement over an Android TV app?” As someone who ditched traditional cable a couple of months back for Playstation Vue, I have been impatiently waiting for an Android TV to arrive, so that I can watch the service without using unreliable Chromecasts or have to deal with Amazon’s Fire TVs. Today, my dreams have come true, hence the excitement.  (more…)

PlayStation Vue Coming to Android Next Week

Coupled with the announcement that it is now available for Roku, PlayStation Vue will be made available on Android devices beginning next week. If you are sitting there asking yourself, “What on Earth is PlayStation Vue?,” think of it as a Netflix-like cable TV competitor. With it, users get access to on-demand content, livestreaming TV shows (55+ channels on the basic package), as well as a feature called My Shows, which is a cloud-based DVR. To sum it up, it’s yet another option for those looking to ditch their dinosaur cable TV provider, angled directly at PlayStation console owners.

With PlayStation Vue available for Android, subscribers can watch all of their content directly from their smartphone or tablet, so long as it is running Android 4.4 or newer. Additionally, the app will support Chromecast or any Google Cast-supported device, such as an Android TV box (NVIDIA SHIELD) or HDTV with Google Cast built-in.  (more…)

Sony announced this morning that they are bringing a PS4 companion application to both iOS and Android platforms on November 13. The app will actually be capable of performing a ton of tasks, such as directly accessing PlayStation Network information and features, performing “second screen” features for your console, allow players to spectate on other players’ gameplay (that’s cool), and will also allow you to use your phone as a PS4 remote control.  (more…)

A Big Day in Tech: Apple’s WWDC 2013 Keynote, Microsoft and Sony at E3

wwdc 2013

If you are a fan of tech as a general subject, then today is a day to pay attention. There may not be many Android-related bits, but as most of you know, there will be plenty from its number one competitor. Today kicks off WWDC, Apple’s developer conference, where they have already essentially confirmed that they will unveil their next version of iOS. But outside of Apple, E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) starts this morning with Microsoft on stage to discuss all things XBOX One. And actually, the event runs simultaneously with Apple’s WWDC keynote, so juggling news out of both should be entertaining to say the least. Finally, later this evening, Sony will finish up day 1 at E3 to talk PlayStation 4.  (more…)
