As from today you will no longer require a PlayStation console to be able to view Sony’s PlayStation Vue media channel, as it has been announced that the service is now available via Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV stick.
In total PlayStation Vue will be available to view on a total of seven different platforms that will include PS4, PS3, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, iPhone and iPad, with Chromecast coming soon.
Starting today those that already subscribe to a PlayStation Vue account, will now be able to access its contents via the Amazon hardware. If you don’t have a PlayStation Vue account Sony has a number of free trial options that are available to sign up for via the PlayStation Vue website.
