YouTube TV Comes to Your PS4 Just in Time To Say Goodbye to PlayStation Vue

In just nine days, Sony will shut down its PlayStation Vue service, leaving you with fewer ways to watch TV directly on the PS4. Well, YouTube is here to rescue you—the company just announced that Youtube TV is available on PS4 starting today.

If you want to get rid of your cable company but keep your local channels, you should probably consider a digital antenna. But if that won’t work for you, then you’ll need a streaming TV service. You have lots of options, and while we’d love to recommend a “best streaming TV service,” we found out the hard way that’s an incredibly difficult thing to do.

But, of the many choices out there, YouTube TV is among the best. Its pricing is similar to other live TV services, and it has one of the better interfaces. The problem had been where to watch it—while it’s on most platforms, if you use your PS4 as your primary TV interface, you were out of luck.

You can download YouTube TV for PS4 right now, subscribe to the service (if you aren’t already), and hunker down for the next episode of The Good Place. That should take the sting out of losing PlayStation Vue at least a little.

Hey Janet? Grab me some popcorn, please.
