Sony's 'PlayStation Vue' Begins Nationwide Rollout

Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE: SNE)'s entrance into the cord-cutting movement is continuing its rollout this week as the company's PlayStation Vue streaming service is now available nationwide.

On Monday, Sony added 203 markets to the original list of seven, but there's still a twist. Only that core seven (NYC, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco and Miami) will come with local channels.

For those in the new 200+ cities, they'll have access to ABC, Fox and NBC programming, but via an on-demand option the next day. CBS content is still being negotiated, but could come in "select markets at a later date" per Sony.

Right now, customers across the board have multiple skinny bundles ranging from $29.99 a month to $44.99 a month with options for extra standalone channels including Showtime and Machinima for more money. The cost also includes a cloud-based DVR that provides more space than traditional DVRs.

Vue can be accessed through PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 gaming consoles as well as through Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Chromecast and current iPads/iPhones.
