The online TV streaming arena is getting pretty competitive as a host of companies try and break into this nascent market. A few months back Sony launched its online TV streaming service called PlayStation Vue though only in a select few cities in the United States. The company did say that it would provide an app for the iPad and it has followed through on that promise. The PlayStation Vue iPad app has been released, keep in mind though that it will only be available in markets where PlayStation Vue is being offered right now.
PlayStation Vue initially debuted on the PlayStation 4 in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia. Users get access to live TV, even major networks that are not available on competing services, as well as video on demand features.
Even if you get the iPad app you’ll have to sign up for the service using a PlayStation 4 console, and remember, blackout restrictions can occasionally block online streaming of some channels.
The official PlayStation Vue app is now available for users in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia, they can download the app from the App Store for no charge.
Sony has not said when it plans on bringing its online TV streaming service to other cities across the country, but perhaps it might say something about it during its E3 2015 press event that’s just around the corner.
