PlayStation Vue or also called PS Vue, is a streaming service that’s owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

But, before you can use PlayStation Vue on your PlayStation console or streaming device, you’ll need to activate it first. This guide will show you how to activate PS Vue via psvue/activate on various streaming devices and PlayStation console models.

Important: The PlayStation Vue streaming service was discontinued last January 2020 due to “a highly competitive Pay TV industry, with expensive content and network deals, has been slower to change than we expected.” Alternatively, you can try out other streaming services compatible with your streaming device or console.
