The PlayStation Vue service makes it easy to watch more and search less with a interface that blends live and on-demand content. It also offers search and discovery tools. PS Vue also enables users to "catch up" on many popular shows within three days from a show’s first live airing.
With a single PlayStation Vue subscription, users can simultaneously stream content across multiple devices, including iPhone, iPad, Amazon Fire TV and Chromecast, both in and out of the home.
And with cloud DVR, users can record shows at once and concurrently store thousands of hours of content.
