Vue Adds Channels, Dumps Viacom Channels

Sony’s Playstation Vue announced today that they would be dumping Viacom’s family of channels (effective Nov. 11) fom their live streaming service. Vue also announced the addition of more channels and plans for more additions. You can check out the announcement below:

“We have some new updates about PlayStation Vue to share with you today. First, we’re happy to announce the addition of new channels to PlayStation Vue, including BBC America and NBA TV launching tomorrow, as well as VICE and more local broadcast stations from CBS and Fox coming soon.

Additionally, starting at 12:01am Eastern Time on November 11, all Viacom-owned networks will no longer be available on PlayStation Vue. This includes channels such as Comedy Central, Spike, and MTV. At PlayStation, we always strive to provide the best value and service for our fans. As part of our ongoing evaluation of the PlayStation Vue offering, we have determined that removing the bundle of channels from Viacom is the best way for us to continue to offer the most compelling value to our fans.”

It isn’t clear if this is a permanent move or just a negotiating ploy by Vue. We will update you as we get more info.
