Recommended Posts

Well my original title was going to be 'PlayStation Vue Says Fuck You PlayStation TV', but i try and keep those dreadful profanities of the title of a front page news article, because not everyone likes seeing naughty words.

 

The title also should be 'Sony Says Screw You PlayStation TV', but PS Vue is the reason that Sony has basically given a big fat fuck you to the PS TV and the following is why.

PlayStation Vue is Sony's new TV channel streaming service, it is an over priced streaming service which has recently been released on the PS3 and PS4, at a later date will also be released on iDevices, but no PlayStation TV, which considering the PlayStation TV's name is a fucking dumb decision.

 

So no Netflix, no YouTube, no DLNA and no PlayStation Vue, so what is the point of owning a PlayStation TV >.<

 

Anyhow now that i have had my rant, you can read below what PlayStation Vue is all about:

 

 

SAN MATEO, Calif. – March 18, 2015

In addition, PlayStation Vue will also include new network partners such as Fox News Networks, AMC Networks, and Turner Broadcasting.

“The TV experience needs a revolution and PlayStation Vue changes the rules by embracing how today’s viewers want to discover and enjoy content,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and Group Executive in charge of the Network Entertainment Business. “PlayStation Vue modernizes the TV viewing experience, taking the best of live TV and on-demand content and bringing it to the PlayStation ecosystem in a way that gives control back to viewers and enables them to spend more time watching their favorite programs and less time channel surfing using outdated menus.”

It does not specifically say in that statement that PSTV will never have PS Vue, but it is not on it now, when it should have been, PSTV would have been the most important place to actually start PS Vue off on, but then this is Sony we are talking about and it seems they do not have the ability to think things through properly.

 

On top of excluding PS Vue from PSTV, the price of the full package is $69.99, which in my opinion is way over priced, esspecially when services tend to raise in price after a while.

 

Own a PS4 and are rich or crazy, this what you have to look forward too:

  • PlayStation Plus Forced Subscription
  • PS Now Subscription
  • PS Vue Subscription
  • PS Music Subscription
  • PS Video Subscription

 

That is on top of your other subscriptions such as Netflix, so being a PS4 owners looks like quite an expensive hobby.

I totally agree, even at $49.99 for the cheapest service, it is way over priced.

And the big companies wonder why people pirate shit.

 

EDIT

UK has a satellite service called Sky, it is considered a rip off  by many, its cheapest package is about £25 and it gives you at least 100 more channels than this, which include HD and PVR.

I get my internet, voip phone and tv free because I do some work for the company that provides it, but even when I was paying for it, it only cost me $110/month.  Why the hell would I pay even $50/month for this service.  Hell Netflix and unblock-us gives me just about everything I can get on TV and even that only costs me about $15/month.

 

I guess this is Sony's golden egg to get them back in the black.......lmao

What the fuck!? 70usd is roughly what I pay for my Viasat Gold TV, 100/100Mbit Internet, along with a receiver with the ability to record from 2 different channels at the same time, AS WELL AS access to free streams.

70/Month. I get hookers cheaper than that. Given they aren't very good. But, They do a whole hell of a lot more than Vue does.

 

Holy hell dude. That is ridiculous.
