YouTube TV comes to PS4 as PS Vue moves out

Sony hardware maintains a live TV option at about the same price

Sony's PlayStation Vue TV service may be out this month, but never fear: YouTube TV is in.

Today, YouTube announced the app was being added to the PS Store for PS4, bringing over 70 live TV channels for $50 per month. The app has been available on Xbox One since 2017, and is not currently available on the Nintendo Switch (though the free YouTube app is).

This comes just over a week before Sony shuts down its own TV service, PS Vue, for good. The company announced it would be hitting the brakes back in October, citing the competitive nature of paid TV and the slow change of business models as factors. PS Vue stopped taking new subscribers some time ago, and will fully end for existing subscribers on January 30. Prior to its termination, the cheapest PS Vue plan was $50 per month for around 45 channels.

Currently, the Sony PS Vue page specifically recommends interested users to "please consider YouTube TV as a cable-free live TV alternative."
