PlayStation Vue Takes on Competition with Disney Content Deal

Sony’s Internet TV service, PlayStation Vue — which now offers more channels than Sling TV — has announced a new content deal that will bring ABC, ABC Family, the Disney Channel and all ESPN-related channels to the service. In addition, ABC affiliates will be able to opt-in to the service with live linear programming. “Suddenly, Vue is looking like a real cable replacement,” suggests The Verge. “A wide selection of on-demand content from Disney and ESPN networks will be added to Vue, and subscribers will be able to ‘catch up’ by watching shows they’ve missed within the past three days — without having to rely on Vue’s cloud-based DVR.”
