PlayStation Vue can now be accessed via Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Chromecast to follow this year

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 15, 2015

The PlayStation Vue service has become more versatile, giving people more ways to access their devices. Already, you can now use the Amazon Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick to log in to your PlayStation Vue account.

If you have not yet signed up for an account yet, you will be able to take advantage of the free trial options via the website of the PlayStation Vue on top of your PS3 or PS4. With the addition of the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, the list of supported devices has grown to 7.

Included here of course are the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles by Sony. The service also supports the iPhone and iPad devices. The seventh device is Chromecast, which will be launched soon.

With any of these devices, you can now use PlayStation Vue to watch shows on channels like SHOWTIME and Fox Soccer Plus, among others. You can also use your PlayStation Vue account to subscribe to packages with multiple channels.

However, this offer is only available for subscribers in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco Bay Area, and Miami. Here’s another reason for you to sign up for a new PlayStation Vue account.

If you choose to subscribe to a Core or Elite package, your account makes you eligible to get an Amazon Fire TV Stick after your first paid month of subscription. The promo will begin on November 15. However, it’s only available in select markets, which you can learn about through the PlayStation Vue website at www.psvue.com.

New and existing subscribers also get an early gift for the holidays. This is in the form of lower prices for both the Core and Elite packages. Whereas the Core was usually available at $59.99, those who sign up for new accounts now will instead be charged $54.99.

The Elite’s monthly fee has also been cut to $64.99 from $69.99. Existing users will see adjustments to their charges in the next billing cycle. When Chromecast support becomes available, existing PlayStation Vue subscribers will finally be able to log in to their PlayStation Vue account using supported iOS devices. To do so, they’ll have to use the PlayStation Vue Mobile app.
