PlayStation Vue Compatible With Roku, Android Support Also Coming

PlayStation Vue’s sphere of influence is continuing to expand, as Sony has announced that the service can be accessed on Roku devices as of today, June 21.

Posting the news over on the PlayStation Blog, PlayStation Vue head of product Dan Myers said that the online-based television service would be compatible with several Roku-owned devices, including streaming sticks, players and TV.

Existing PlayStation Vue owners can download their accounts straight on to any Roku device, while newcomers are able to create a seven-day free trial through either the PlayStation Vue website or on your PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4.

“Since we’ve launched PlayStation Vue nationwide, we have heard from many of you that Roku and Android are the top devices you wanted us to add, so we’re pleased to make this a reality,” Myers said.

Sony has revealed that along with its commitment to bring PlayStation Vue to Roku, the service will be supporting Android devices from next week.
