In recent times, cable TV has been overtaken by TV streaming services, with DirecTV Now, Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon TV, YouTube TV, and several other streaming services being the go-to option for entertainment content.
PlayStation Vue is another one of these streaming services, which has become quite popular despite it being launched only recently.
A subscription-based TV streaming service, PlayStation Vue offers more than 40 entertainment channels, including top channels such as ESPN, Disney, and TNT.
On top of that, you can access PlayStation Vue from a wide variety of devices, from your computer, PlayStation console, and even your phone.
However, the best part is that you can record your favorite shows and watch them later – thus making sure you do not miss anything.
If you are new to the service, we have compiled all the information you need to get started, including how to watch recorded shows on PlayStation Vue.
Can you DVR on PlayStation Vue?
Yes, you can. PlayStation Vue has a DVR function that allows you to record and store your favorite shows for up to 28 days.
You can set up the recording function on a compatible device, after which any new episodes – the show(s) you have selected – will be automatically recorded and stored on the Cloud DVR.
You can then watch the recorded shows by signing into your PlayStation Vue account, navigating to “My DVR” and selecting the recorded show you want to watch.
Can you watch PS Vue anywhere?
PlayStation Vue is available in all regions in the USA. However, when you are signing up for your account, you will need to enter a zip code for your area – which will then become your “home area”.
When you are in your home area, you will be able to access all the content available on PlayStation Vue, depending on your home area.
However, when traveling, you will only be able to stream local programming of the destination you are traveling to – as opposed to the local programming of your home area.
However, if you have pre-recorded any local programming (of your home area) you can be able to watch your recorded PlayStation DVR clips from anywhere in the US by going to the “My DVR” section on your PS Vue account.
Unfortunately, you cannot record local programming when you are traveling (outside your home area).
What devices can you use to access PlayStation Vue?
To sign up and even stream PlayStation Vue content, you do not need a PlayStation console.
You can access the content from a wide range of devices, which include:
- PlayStation consoles (3 and 4)
- Roku TV
- Android devices ((Android 5.0 and higher)
- iOS devices (iOS 9 and higher)
- Personal computers
- Smartphones and tablets
- Apple TV
- Amazon Fire
- Android TV
- Google Chromecast
For any of these devices, you can both stream or watch your recorded shows. You can also use multiple devices on your PlayStation Vue account (up to 5 devices), which allows everyone in the family to enjoy their favorite TV shows.
Can you watch PS Vue on your phone?
Yes, you can watch PlayStation Vue on your phone. The streaming service supports both Android devices and iOS devices using the PlayStation Vue app.
It is also possible to access Playstation Vue on your internet-enabled phone on the web by going to psvue.com/watch – provided your phone can support streaming.
Wondering how to watch recorded shows on PlayStation Vue? It’s easy.
Using any of the compatible PS Vue devices, you can be able to set up the recording function that comes with the PlayStation streaming service, and then access the recorded shows from anywhere in the US by going into your DVR library.
So, whether you are home, traveling on business, or on vacation, you can be able to keep up with all your favorite TV shows.
