PlayStation Vue launches on Android TV

Sony's over-the-top TV service PlayStation Vue has launched on Android TVs in the USA and will soon add PC and Mac support.

If you're not familiar with PlayStation Vue yet, this is Sony's TV service that you can use if you own a PlayStation 4 console. Users of Android TV platforms - as long as it's Android version 4.4 or better - can now install the PlayStation Vue app. It'll include a special mini-player feature in which PlayStation Vue continues streaming in a small box while you do other things on your computer. "Additionally, web support for both PC and Mac is coming soon".

PlayStation Vue offers live and on demand content from a growing collection of channels.

Nah, who are we kidding?
