A head's up to the "cord cutters" out there: AppleTV users can now access live television programming via Sony's PlayStation Vue service.
PlayStation Vue on Apple TV provides simultaneous streaming and cloud DVR with no recording conflicts and no long-term contract commitments. Users can take advantage of Apple TV's Siri Remote and easy navigation with touch, while using PlayStation Vue's user interface.
The PlayStation Vue service provides access to live TV programming that ranges from sports networks like ESPN and NFL Network to premium channels such as AMC, FX, HBO, and so on. Those with an existing PlayStation Vue account can link their subscription to Apple TV and start streaming right away. New users can sign up for one of several plan options through the PlayStation Vue website and link their subscription to Apple TV without the need of a PlayStation console. A seven-day free trial is available to new PlayStation Vue customers and plans range from $29.99 per month to $74.99 per month depending upon tier and location.
