Sony’s live-streaming TV service PlayStation Vue has just introduced several new updates, including the ability to sign up for the service online without needing a TV, according to Engadget.

Previously, you needed a connected TV or streaming device in order to sign up for PlayStation Vue, but now all that’s required is a laptop or mobile device. Dwayne Benefield, the head of Playstation Vue, told Engadget the move was needed as the cord cutting trend continues. Also, it gives the company an opportunity “with segments like college students, who might not have a TV in the first place.”

Other new features include the ability to watch regional sports networks in other cities and access to the local broadcast affiliate of whatever city you’re currently in. The service still costs $40 a month, and the service’s changes should go into effect soon, although no exact date is given.
