Sony is on a roll, and it has decided to join the video streaming foray with an app of its own. The new app that was made for Android users is the all-new PlayStation Video App. The new app, which can work for smartphones and tablets, was launched this Tuesday, March 15.
The new app from Sony Mobile allows PS4, PS3 and Vita owners to stream previously purchased video content from the PlayStation Store to an Android device. The said app, as posted on the PlayStation blog, also details that one can purchase their favorite movies and TV shows and even PlayStation original content straight to their phones or tablet.
The new PlayStation Video App boasts full access to a range of TV shows and movies available through the service. These are available for rent as well as purchase without subscription. The Verge adds that the new app has already been receiving good reviews from Android users; however, some are complaining.
According to some users, the app doesn’t have the newly introduced Vue feature that was made available across the US earlier this week. PlayStation Vue is Sony’s internet TV service that was initially available in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, and Miami. But after Monday, March 14, it was announced in the PlayStation blog that it has rolled out across the US with three plans to choose from.
It currently doesn’t have live shows from four of the biggest TV networks and has so far made its way into a dedicated app available for iOS and Amazon’s Fire TV. Accordingly, there is a section in the new Android app for Vue; however, it is still unclear whether that will be promotional or if it can be used to sign up and stream the service.
The new PlayStation Video App can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. So far, there is no news yet whether the app will be making an iOS release.
