PlayStation Vue Adds Multi-Channel Viewing

Posted by at 7:00 am on March 6, 2017

Sony today announced and launched a new feature for its streaming TV service, PlayStation Vue. You can now watch up to three live channels at the same time on the same screen.

The feature comes just a week before March Madness begins.

Here’s how the feature works, as explained by Sony:

“Just press and hold X on any live TV program from the Guide or Live TV row of the home screen to open up the selection screen for multi-view. A menu will pop up to give you an option of using either two or three multi-view screens. You can select any other live programing from the Live TV strand and start viewing multiple programs at once. The main screen in multi-view will contain audio of the programming.”

You can then switch channels from within the multi-screen view by pressing the Square button. This will bring one of those shows to the main screen, which is larger than the others.

The multi-view feature is available with the PS4 Vue app today, though Sony did not say if it will come to other supported devices.

Also in its blog post, Sony said it’s working on more sports-related features for PlayStation Vue, including the option to have real-time sports scores. Thankfully, there will be an option to toggle this off.
