Sony’s live-streaming TV service PlayStation Vue now offers subscribers access to the MLB Network as part of its $35-a-month Core tier. (That price is bumped up to $45 in a number of larger cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas.) The news comes just in time for the start of the Major League Baseball season on April 2nd, and gives baseball fans a chance to access the network for less. Rival TV streaming service Sling TV doesn’t carry the MLB Network, and DirecTV is more expensive.
PlayStation Vue was originally limited to Sony’s console for access, but is now available on a variety of devices including Google’s Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, iOS, and Android. Sony offers a number of different packages but has lately been expanding into live sports content. Last year, both the NBA and NFL started streaming on Vue, and this March, Sony added a new multi-view feature that let subscribers watch up to three March Madness games at once.
