    For those who own a PS4 and have a PSVue TV service, is it really worth it? I heard if you have this service, you can stream on 3 different TV sets, one in the kids room, living room, and bedroom, all 3 different channels. But how does this really work, do you need 3 PS4's to do it or just 1?

    I really want cable TV and heard PSVue TV is really good, but there's other services out there like SlingTV and DirectTVNow, they are supposely good services too but not so sure.

    As of currently I only use a TV Antenna and have ATT for internet provider, getting a combo of Att Internet and TV for 3 TV sets would be in the 200 buck range and too much for our family. And even 1 TV set with the internet/TV combo of maybe 100 or so a month, is apparently too pricey too.

    Which service for internet and TV do you guys go with, and think is the best option out there?

    It runs like sludge on the Playstation 3, but I liked the concept and suspect channel surfing would be more stable on a PS4. I think there's a trial; give it a spin and see what you think.

    I have the service and you don't have to have 3 PS4s. Currently I have a PS4 in the living room and a FireTV Stick in each of the rooms. Works pretty well. It can do 5 streams simultaneously with support for multiple types of devices such as Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire devices, Android tablets, Apple Tablets, and PS4 and PS3.

    How does it work to be able to stream on different devices though. Its like if I have a HD TV but it is NOT a smart TV, how can I stream from the PS4 onto the HD TV? I don't have a roku or amazon fire stick or any of those types of devices either.

    You just buy an Amazon Fire TV stick they are $40 and you can download the Playstation Vue app on that device.
