PlayStation announced that PlayStation Vue is adding multi-view on Apple TV, allowing users to watch up to four live channels on one screen. This comes just in time for NCAA March Madness, so viewers can keep an eye on all the action or mix and match live games with live news or other programs.
Multi-view is one of their most popular features on PlayStation 4, so PlayStation is thrilled to expand to Apple TV to allow more of our customers to enjoy the feature.
Additionally, the multi-view feature on PS4, which offers up to three live channels at once, is receiving two updates. The first update is real-time program changing, which means users will no longer have to start from the beginning each time they want to add in a different program.
The second update is new filters – now Sports and News have their own dedicated tabs, which makes it even easier for the viewer to find sports and news for multi-view.
PS Vue customers on all devices, which includes Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, iOS and Android mobile devices, PC/Mac browsers and Chromecast, continue to enjoy other rich features that come with their monthly plan, like industry-leading five simultaneous streams and a powerful cloud-based DVR with the least ad skipping restrictions — at no extra cost.
PlayStation will also continue to offer standalone channels without the need of a multichannel plan, such as HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax, as well as continue to launch additional local channels.
Currently 92 percent of the US has access to at least three of the “Big 4” broadcasters (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC) on PS Vue.
