Here's Why PS Vue Is Shutting Down

PlayStation Vue, Sony's alternative TV service, is shutting down come January 30th, 2020 as announced on the PS Blog

Today we are announcing that we will shut down the PlayStation Vue service on January 30, 2020. Unfortunately, the highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected. Because of this, we have decided to remain focused on our core gaming business. 

The service has run about 4 years since its initial launch in 2015, as Sony has worked to innovate live and on demand television while helping users discover new content. The post mentioned, 

We had ambitious goals for how our service could change how people watch TV, showcasing PlayStation’s ability to innovate in a brand-new category within the Pay TV industry.

The blog says that fans can continue to access TV and movie content through the PlayStation Store and the applications available on it from their partners, and that they will continue to focus on their other services, PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

They gave it a great shot though. Sometimes these types of ventures into new avenues can go one way or the other, and its actually great that PlayStation Vue lasted this long in such a competitive new arena for cordless TV services.
