Building on a deal it already has in place with CBS, PlayStation Vue has added 20 local networks to its list of live offerings. It was just last week that Hulu also announced a deal to stream CBS shows live, so it’s nice to see more choices available. These additions come on top of additions Vue announced in July.
For cord cutters, missing local TV is one of the biggest drawbacks. And although local broadcasts can be picked up with an antenna is most cases, the option of being able to stream CBS right beside the rest of your content is huge, and a big advantage for Vue service. This is especially true with football season coming up since CBS airs many games, and this gives fans another way to watch NFL games online.
In cities where live local broadcasts aren’t available, the “Slim” package provides next day, on demand access to those shows.
