Sony Corp. this week said it will launch Playstation Vue, a cloud-based TV service, to the Playstation 4 and Playstation 3.
The service will feature on-demand TV, the option to save shows to the cloud, and Search and Explore functions to narrow program results.
Playstation Vue will begin an invite-only beta preview in Nov. to select PS4 and PS3 owners, and carry around 75 channels per market from national programmers and local broadcast station.
Launch partners include CBS, Discovery Communications, Fox, NBC Universal, Scripps Networks, and Viacom.
Pricing and packaging details are to be determined, though the company said there will be no contracts and the service will not require any additional equipment other than the console hardware.
Playstation Vue will launch commercially in the first quarter of 2015.
