PlayStation Vue: here’s what you need to know

Sony's newest TV-based venture is PlayStation Vue, a system that works specifically on their PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 gaming devices. Now that we're well and away from the launch of the PS4, a device that Sony assured the public was a "gamer-centric" system back in 2013, it's time to get serious about bringing on television services. For the time being, PlayStation Vue - a TV channel service - will be available to Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia only, though more cities are on the way in the near future.

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

In an effort to make your console more relevant to your TV experience than gaming, Sony is soft-launching PlayStation Vue. Their Internet TV service is robust, sporting 55 channels of take-it-or-leave-it TV. There are no complicated bundles — you get 55 channels with Vue’s starting point. It’s competitive with Sling TV as a streaming TV option, but might leave some wanting. The service notably lacks ESPN, a major feature for Sling TV. PlayStation Vue also costs $49.99/month for the basic package, well above Sling TV’s $20/month starting point.

‘Seinfeld’ to finally be available for streaming

‘Seinfeld’ to finally be available for streaming

That now classic 90's sitcom, Seinfeld, the self-labeled "show about nothing," is finally on its way to online streaming availability. The only thing is, don't bet on watching it on Netflix. Sony Pictures, the studio responsible for the Jerry Seinfeld-starring show, is said to be starting talks on licensing the rights for streaming. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, Netflix is not interested in joining negotiations. This means you'll likely need to be a subscriber to Hulu, Amazon, or Yahoo's services if you're eager to stream some Kramer.

Tubi TV scores load of movies in Paramount deal

Cord cutters have another relatively little-known entertainment option with Tubi TV ("tubitv"), a service that has recently expanded by striking a deal with Paramount Pictures. Under the deal, Tubi has scored 50 of the company's older movies that are being provided for streaming for free, included among them being Top Gun. Tubi TV works in a way similar to Crackle, in that content is free but supported by advertisements that pepper the content. Tubi TV launched last year, and boasts a large library of content.

FTC charges DirecTV with fraud for misleading customers

FTC charges DirecTV with fraud for misleading customers

DirecTV has been charged by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for misleading customers. The advertising in question was DirecTV's 12-month discount package. The plan was advertised as costing only $19.95, but obscured from customers was the fact that a 2-year contract was needed to get deal. Even more astounding is that the FTC alleges that DirecTV charged customers for premium channels after a 3-month trial period, and DirecTV never told customers that they needed to cancel these channels in order to avoid being charged automatically.
