PlayStation Vue Shutting Down Service Jan 30th, 2020

Recommended Posts

Is that in the event they don't find a buyer or did Sony just say fuck it?

I never cut the cord because our intergoogles cost enough to make it a wash, but I certainly liked their channel selection.

It’s not perfect but was the clear leader for sports. 
 

Redzone, LHN, FS1&2, BeIn Sports, NBC sports networks. Regional Fox, NFL,NBA and MLB networks. 
 

no other service comes close

Oh man, that really sucks. It's been our go to. I hate traditional tv. 

Yeah, just saw announcement on CNBC that Vue is shutting down.

Guess the following streaming options left, but not sure of LHN availability??

DirectTV Now      2.5mill subscribers

SlingTV.               2.5mill

YouTubeTV          1.5mill

Only 500k VUE subscribers, so they said FUCK IT

YouTubeTV is great, but it does not have LHN or NFL Red Zone.

At&t is killing off direct TV now. I'm still holding onto my sub but they're trying to price everyone off. Afaik for sports, only YouTube TV and sling are good options. You should be able to use your ESPN login to get lhn in their app but it's an extra step.

I cut the cord 5 years ago and saved a shit ton, but internet was cheap.  Now I don't really think I am saving much at all.

I haven’t gotten anything from att about killing their service. Just the recent rebranding to att tv.

Rebranding to ATT TV Now.  Price hikes next month.  Will eventually merge into HBO Max

it's the same thing they did with their IPTV u-verse service. it was either switch to directv or deal with price hikes. strange way of doing business rather than trying to bridge a gap, but it's at&t, so...

Our own cord cutter thread converted me 6 months ago and I chose Vue. Looking at YouTube tv, the channel lineup looks the same even for sports sans lhn which could be obtained through the espn app. So meh.

I switched from Spectrum to YoutubeTV a couple of months ago and I'm pretty happy.  I've had to stream a couple of LHN games, but I'm saving more than enough to put up with that.

(Note: I'm on AT&T fiber; may not be as good with slower internet)

LHN is the reason I stuck with Vue. Guess I'm switching to Youtube tv.. either now or in Jan. 

Back to suppose.tv to figure out my best options...

I just canceled Vue (working through Nov 11th) and will most likely sign up for Youtube TV sometime before then.

LHN was what was keeping me there, so hopefully a new solution will arise for that.

Oops. If I'm reading the email correctly current subscribers will get the bulk of January for free as December will be the last time they bill.

Damnit, you fuckers. Vue is awesome.  

I can't believe the number of streaming subscribers is so low. Would have figured it was much higher than that by now.

Surprised ESPN and FOX don't sell stand alone streaming subscriptions for their Tier 1 sports.

Content on ESPN+ is not so good....

Adding the PlayStation branding to this hurt them. I had a conversation with some guys at work the other day about streaming services when I threw in my vote for PS Vue and all of them were under the impression you had to have a PS to use it.

This is also my take.  The PlayStation branding was the cause.  When I had this initially (before I switched to DirecTV NOW), I got a lot of "oh I didn't know you had a PlayStation!"

Gah

Well I'm not going back to DirecATT or whatever it's called now.

YoutubeTV appears to be the popular choice

Hulu+ still exist?

I've successfully weaned my family off of cable Television, so maybe I just sling it.

I honestly thought that's what it was until this thread.

HORRIBLY marketing.. anyone I mentioned it to said, well I don't have a playstation. 

One thing I won't miss will be their horrible website if you ever had issues with a payment.

YouTube TV seems to be the most popular.  I tried Hulu Live TV but didn't enjoy it on my FireTV.  The UI was not very user friendly.

I'm sticking with ATT TV Now because I'm still grandfathered in at $25 (soon to be $35/mo) with free HBO.  Still can't beat that price.  The only one that comes close, for me, is to roll my Hulu (no ads) in with Hulu Live TV for $50/mo.

Hulu:UI::Sony:Branding

 

It is as baffling as Sony calling their streaming TV service "Playstation!" that Hulu continues to not fix their UI.

This really sucks. I was so happy when I got to cut the cord from fucking Frontier. I had Verizon but it has sucked since Frontier took over. Cut the cable and Vue has been great, so much sports. And I agree about the branding I had to research it before I chose it because I didn’t want to have to buy a PlayStation.

I don’t think there are any current options that give me what I had with Vue.

What options are you specifically looking for. 

Go here.. and select what channels you want and see what you can get.

I’ll check that out thanks!

 

I definitely want LHN. And most of the standard sports stations

You Tube TV is fairly close to what you want. Find a relative or friend with direct tv and throw them 50/yr for their access for ESPN app/LHN.

Only 5 more football seasons and hopefully the days of needing to know who carries the LHN are over.  Can't wait for our games to all be back on channels every provider carries.

This is very true. The weird part is that the video quality was better when I logged in via the mobile app and beamed it to my computer.

You're going to be very disappointed about where live sports broadcasting is headed in the next 5 years.
