According to the reports, the newly launched television service by Sony will be available in a three major cities across the United States of America: New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. The company aims to compete with the conventional cable service, providing TV service at a comparatively cheaper rate.

The news has it that the service has been launched in just three cities because the Japanese Company is looking forward to make a mark, before actually taking the steps of expansion. PlayStation Vue is expected to provide its viewers with more than 80 well known channels including FOX, CBS, etc..
The Service on offer will also allow its users to demand video depending on their wishes. Thus, as it seems there is nothing left that PlayStation Vue is not offering to its viewers.

The price that Sony will be charging for the PlayStation Vue is a bit too much for some individuals, but the experts have a different view. To be true, the price compared to the number of channels on offer by PlayStation Vue, is certainly permissible.
