Update: Sony PR has confirmed the stations that have been added to PlayStation Vue. 

Cord Cutters News is receiving reports from readers that PlayStation Vue has added CBS live stream in new markets. The reports from our readers suggest that the CBS stations being added are currently stations owned by Raycom Media, that owns just a few CBS affiliates like the one in Cleveland, OH. (Update: it seems other CBS affilate stations are being added to PlayStation Vue but not all.)

For now it seems that markets with just a live CBS stream is still just $29.99/month. Markets with local channels are typically $39.99/month.

We can confirm that PlayStation Vue’s Fire TV updated yesterday and now supports 60 FPS.

PlayStation Vue Packages:

  • Access: 55+ channels, including live cable TV, movies and sports channels for $29.99 per month ($39.99 in cities with major live local broadcast stations*).

PlayStation Vue is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Google Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Fire TV Stick on your TV. Vue is also available on iPad/iPhone through the PlayStation Vue mobile app and now Android phones and tablets.

This is just the latest in what is turning into a back and forth fight between PlayStation Vue and Sling TV. Both services seem dedicated to trying to one up the other with very different approaches to how a streaming service like this should work.
