PlayStation Vue Channels – Main Subscription Packages

PlayStation Vue offers four easy-to-understand subscription plans. When you pay for a more expensive plan, you get all of the channels in the less expensive plans.

  • Access: 45+ channels for $50 per month.
  • Core: 70+ channels for $55 per month.
  • Elite: 80+ channels for $65 per month.
  • Ultra: 80+ channels, HBO, Showtime for $85 per month.

Among the premium features that come standard with all of PlayStation Vue’s subscription plans is the ability to stream to five devices at the same time and unlimited cloud DVR recording.

As with most other streaming services, PlayStation Vue has not signed deals with every local station owner. As a result, you may not get all of the local stations from ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. The same is true with certain regional sports networks (RSNs). PlayStation Vue has a zip code lookup tool that will tell you which local stations and RSNs you’ll actually get.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of what channels you’ll get with PlayStation Vue.
