How do I set up my device to use PlayStation Vue?

To set up your device on PlayStation Vue, first you’ll need an active subscription to PlayStation Vue. As part of purchasing a subscription to PlayStation Vue, you will need to create a PlayStation Network account (if you don’t already have one).

Once you have a subscription to PS Vue, you’ll need the PS Vue app on your device, and then you’ll need to sign in with your PlayStation Network account (note – Apple TV® and Roku® players require activation by a code). For a step by step guide by device, visit device activation and choose your device.

I have an Apple TV™ or Roku® player; the screen says I need to activate the device. What does that mean?

If you are using PlayStation Vue for the first time on Apple TV® or a Roku® player, you will need to activate the device with your PlayStation Vue subscription.

Activating the device just means taking a code you see on the PlayStation™Vue screen on an Apple TV® or a Roku® player and entering it at psvue.com/activate. To access psvue.com/activate, sign in with your PSN account. You’ll need to already have a subscription on PlayStation™Vue.

Some channels or programs are not available through PlayStation™Vue on mobile devices due to streaming rights and your location. These channels will be marked as such with a “Mobile Restricted” badge.

If you experience all channels being marked as Mobile Restricted, you will need to re-establish your home location on your mobile device. To do so, simply select sign out from PlayStation™Vue, connect your device to the home network where you originated your PlayStation™Vue subscription, and log back into PlayStation™Vue.

Note: The same blackout rules apply on a supported mobile phone, tablet, and computer browser as they do on PlayStation Vue on a TV-connected device.
