With My Shows, we will sort available episodes from original air date, to make sure you don’t miss a thing, and so you can watch in order.

PlayStation™Vue is available for use inside your home at the location you activated your subscription. This is called your “home” location, defined by the network IP address you used to sign into PlayStation™Vue for the first time.
You cannot use your credentials on a friend’s PlayStation device. Attempting to stream PlayStation™Vue outside of your “home” location can result in the blocking of service to your account.
With PlayStation™Vue Mobile, you can stream select channels outside the home, or stream directly to your TV via Google Chromecast. Please see the Supported Device FAQs for more information on PlayStation™Vue Mobile, available on select iOS and Android devices, and PlayStation™Vue on Google Chromecast.
You cannot physically take your PS4™ or PS3™ console or other TV-connected devices outside your home, nor can you sign in to or access the service on someone else’s device outside of your home.
You can access select channels on PlayStation™Vue Mobile, available on select iOS and Android devices, outside the home. Some channels on PlayStation™Vue Mobile are limited. For information on channel availability, please see the PlayStation™Vue Mobile section of the FAQ.
Note: By ignoring the “In-Home” rules above, PlayStation™Vue will be unavailable, and you may be blocked from service.
A temporary Internet connection or Hotspot connection should not be used with PlayStation™Vue. PlayStation™Vue requires a high-speed Internet connection, and depends on a static location. Hotspots often interfere with these requirements and can restrict access to PlayStation™Vue.
PlayStation™Vue airs many of the same live TV channels available on cable and satellite services, so commercials will be included. Your ability to fast forward through commercials will be similar to that on other television services. Any airing recorded to “My Shows” will have no restrictions on fast forwarding. You will not be able to fast forward through commercials within Catch-up or while watching On Demand programming.

2. Navigate to the PlayStation™Vue application on your device.
3. Login with your PlayStation™Network ID.
You can also sign up on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 devices; just download the app to get started. Once you’ve activated your TV-connected device, you can also download and activate the PlayStation™Vue Mobile app.
Note: You must first activate a supported TV-connected device (PS4, PS3, Fire TV) prior to logging into the PlayStation™Vue Mobile application.
Subscribing to PlayStation™Vue is easy. You just need the following:
* Sony Entertainment Network
Yes, you can try PlayStation™Vue with a free trial. One free trial per customer is available for 7 days, and can be enjoyed immediately after signing up for a subscription.
The first time you sign up for your package of choice, you will receive a 7-day free trial. You can cancel the trial at any time. If you do not cancel before the end of the 7th day, you automatically begin your monthly subscription and you will be charged a monthly fee based on your chosen plan until you cancel. There are no penalties for cancellation and you will still have access for the rest of the month already paid for. To cancel, go to Settings, select Subscription and click the cancel button or login at www.psvue.com and select My Subscription > Unsubscribe.
There are no additional fees, hidden fees or charges (i.e. no HD fees, installation fees, local sports fees etc.) All pricing - inclusive of any taxes - is presented to you at checkout prior to purchase, so what you see is what you pay. A high speed broadband internet connection is required to stream PlayStation™Vue.
Your billing cycle begins as soon as your seven-day free trial has ended. If you’ve already had a free trial, your billing cycle will commence upon purchase. PlayStation™Vue subscriptions and all additional subscriptions through PlayStation™Vue will automatically renew on the monthly anniversary of your subscription start date. However, if your billing date is the 30th or 31st of the month, in a month with fewer days you will instead be charged - and your subscription will auto-renew - on the last day of that month.
Unfortunately, changing your payment due date is not possible at this time. You will need to cancel and re-subscribe to PlayStation™Vue on the day you wish your billing cycle to start.
You can upgrade or downgrade your subscription once per billing cycle (once per month). You can make adjustments to your PlayStation™Vue account by logging in at www.psvue.com/subscribe.
To make adjustments to your subscription from PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 console:
Note: If you are downgrading your service in the middle of your billing cycle, you will still continue to receive the upgraded package for the rest of the month and will not receive any refund or credit. The next billing cycle will start your new plan and you will be charged accordingly.
If you are upgrading your service in the middle of your billing cycle, you will be charged the pro-rata price difference and immediately upon purchase confirmation you will receive access to the upgraded plan.
Your “home location” is the IP address and zip code that are recorded along with your device when you first subscribe to PlayStation™Vue. PlayStation™Vue will not work across multiple IPs in the home.
Yes, you can change your home location if you’ve changed permanent addresses. The first time you attempt to use your account to access PlayStation™Vue from outside your previous home location, you will be asked if you would like to change your home location. PlayStation™Vue will assume you have changed your home address and you may be messaged as such.
Note: You can only make a home location change one time, otherwise your account may be blocked from service.
Changing your home location may result in changes to your account, as regional channel availability will vary based on your zip code.
If you experience location issues or errors with PlayStation™Vue after moving, please contact Customer Support.

When you click on the Live TV menu from the Home screen, you first see all the shows that are currently airing in order of their popularity at the moment. This gives you an easy way to see what shows are trending at any time so you never miss a big game or a major televised event. On PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 consoles, you can also press the R2 button to scroll all the way to the right to get a gallery view of every show airing live right now.
On PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles, press the L1 button to go immediately to a complete view of your “My Shows” library.
Note: My Shows “DVR” availability will vary by channel, individual program, and service location.
To see what you recently watched, simply scroll left. You can also scroll right to look ahead to see a show you might want to watch in the future on that channel, or capture them in “My Shows”
You can tag any channel to make it a favorite by pressing the R1 button or by selecting the “Favorite” Heart icon. Once tagged as a favorite, the channel will appear first in the “Favorite Channels” menu on the Home screen and at the front of the Guide. “Favorite Channels” is a great way to discover new TV shows from the channels you know and love.
There are a few primary tools to find the content you’re looking for, Explore, Search, and Guide, all found in the tool bar at the top of your home screen (availability may vary by device)
With Explore (Show Explore Icon) You can filter by:
To use Search (Show Search Icon) just do as follows:
The most popular results are prioritized at the top. PlayStation™Vue also remembers your search history so you never forget all the great TV you’ve been trying to find.

From the Home screen, go to the top Toolbar and select the “Guide” icon.
As a TV service provider, PlayStation™Vue must adhere to specific restrictions that are occasionally contracted between studios, sports leagues and your favorite channels. PlayStation™Vue is sometimes not able to show certain movies and TV shows because these restrictions do not permit (and therefore “black out”) the transmission of certain shows over the internet.
Sports Blackouts and National Rights
Rightsholders do not permit sports content to be transmitted in some areas. Therefore, some TV is blacked out for all TV and cable services in some areas. If a national broadcasting network such as FOX, NBC or CBS has national rights to broadcast a sporting event, you may not be able to receive that game, depending on your local market.
Sports Blackouts and Local Rights
Rightsholders do not permit sports content to be transmitted in some areas. Therefore, some TV is blacked out for all TV and cable services in some areas. If a regional sports network that PlayStation™Vue carries has local rights to broadcast a game, and if you live within the region you can receive that game through your PlayStation™Vue subscription, because it includes your local regional sports network(s). If you are outside of the region for a particular team, you will receive alternate programming during the time of a live event.
Absolutely. Over 50 of our network partners have applications or websites through which you can watch live TV and on demand programming. While these apps and sites are completely separate from PlayStation™Vue, they can be used at no additional cost with your PlayStation™Vue subscription.
To authenticate and gain access, you will need a subscription to a PlayStation™Vue package that includes the channel whose content you are looking to access.
You can access the below list of apps with your PlayStation™Network credentials. When you download each app, simply look for the PlayStation™Vue logo or drop down option on the app’s log-in screen. Once at the log-in screen, type in your credentials and you’re in. Most apps can be downloaded from Google Play and the iTunes store.

At PlayStation, we always strive to provide the best value and service for our fans. As part of our ongoing evaluation of the PlayStation Vue offering, we have determined that removing the bundle of channels from Viacom is the best way for us to continue to offer the most compelling value to our fans, while enabling us to focus on the content our users request most.
No. However, we are always evaluating the PlayStation Vue service to ensure we are offering great value with the channels that matter most to our users.
We plan to continue expanding the PlayStation Vue service further by adding new network channels, as well as expanding to additional devices. Just recently, we launched PlayStation Vue on Android TV devices and added support for web browsers on PC and Mac devices. We also recently announced new channels coming to the service, such as BBC America, Vice, NBA TV and more.
