PlayStation Vue is a live streaming service. Created by Sony, perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions is that you need a PlayStation to use PlayStation Vue. You don’t! In fact, you can use all kinds of devices to watch PS Vue. From Roku to Chromecast, you can use many of the popular streaming devices to watch PlayStation Vue. With that in mind, it’s worth asking, how much does PlayStation Vue cost? If you’re wondering the PlayStation Vue price, you’re in the right place! We’re about to go over PS Vue cost for all of the various packages, so that you can find the right option for you!
PlayStation Vue offers four package with added channels that can be tacked on to any package. In the rest of this article, we’ll look at the PS Vue price for each package including all the available channels.
How Much Does PlayStation Vue Cost?
The PS Vue price depends on the package that you choose. There are four packages to choose from, and the PS cost depends on which package you pick. It also depends on whether or not you’re in a location with live streaming local channels. Local channels are technically included in all the four PS Vue packages. However, only the following cities currently have live stream access:
- San Francisco
- New York
- Los Angeles
The only exception is CBS, which is available in more areas, but not the entire country. So, if you do get local live streams, how does that affect the PlayStation Vue cost? It’s simple. Whatever package you choose, just add $10, and that covers the locals. Otherwise, your local access is limited to next day on-demand availability.
PlayStation Vue Price: The Packages
The basic package is called the Access package. It has around 45 channels including the on-demand or live streaming locals. Each additional package contains the channels from the package smaller than it plus additional channels.
The PS Vue price is $30/month or $40 with locals. You’ll receive:
Locals On-Demand in most areas: ABC, CBS, FOX, MyNetworkTV, NBC, NECN, and Telemundo

The next package is known as Core. You receive everything listed above, and more for $35/month or $45/month with the addition of the local live streams.

The third package option is the Elite package. This one will run you $45/month without the local live streams and $55/month with them. Again, you receive everything (barring regional channels depending on area) you receive in the two lesser packages, along with the following:

The Ultra package is the final main package. It’s $65/month or $10 more with the locals in live stream. The only additions to this package are HBO East & West and Showtime East and West.
Each add-on channel is available at its own price. It’s up to you to decide whether to add any or none of the following channels. Options include:
- FOX Soccer Plus – $15/month
- NFL RedZone – $40 per season
- HBO (live and on-demand) – $15/month
