PlayStation Vue, Is It Worth The Effort??
So, Sony's attempt to grab cord cutter is out today. PlayStation Vue has launched in 3 US regions today. What starts as a great idea, streaming live TV with dvr features, quickly turns sour when you see the pricing. For $49-69, depending on the plan you want, gets you the equivalent of basic cable for the same price or more!!! At $30, it would be a perfect compliment to Netflix, Hulu and others, but the prices sony want for a service that ONLY works on the PS3 and PS3 right now seems like a project destined to fail. Where I am, $60 a month would net me a basic cable package with HD that includes more channels. Others may be able to snag basic WITH a premium channel for around the same or less! While the idea is sound, pricing kills it!
What do you think??
