    Hopefully it's coming soon. IMO this is the biggest (pretty much only) drawback to Vue.

    its the one thing preventing me from getting it, I could easily use it on my PS4, seems like too much of a PITA to use (any app) on that console.

    It is still worth it. We got a couple of Fire TV sticks. Every time I use them I wish I could access Vue on my ATV4. It's significantly faster and the interface is infinitely better. But at the end of the day, I'm saving over $100 bucks a month. No brainer.

    The PlayStation Vue app and streams are rock solid and looks very good. Definitely like the cloud DVR feature and being able to switch between family accounts easily to see recordings. Look forward to comparing this to the upcoming Directv Now. The PS Vue credentials work on all the channel standalone apps for away from home streaming and on Apple TV. Will be interesting as more competitors enter, how each service decides to standout among the rest

    Good to hear. I will interested to see how DirecTV Now compares. And will be very interested in Hulu next year since I use Hulu with no commercials now. I like the 5 streams and your comment about family accounts which I assume are like Netflix.
    Regarding the 5 streams. I have 8 Apple TV's. I understand after you login to 5 they make it difficult to logout of 1 to switch to another. Like 3 hours. Is that true? Would be nice to limit to 5 streams at the same time but not restrict logins. Also, are you limited to only your house instead of maybe taking it with you on vacation like a vacation home? I understand that you can use other Apps but I am talking about the main Vue App with DVR. THANKS.

    I figured a better way to brows than the guide. If you stay on the home tab and scroll down to live tv you can view from there in a grid where each channel or show, depending on how you sort, is on a tile sort of like Windows tile.

    I believe your ATV device is geo locked or somehow verified to your location, so doubt the VUE app would work at your vacation home but of course the standalone apps will and maybe Apple's upcoming TV app will pull those in for a weekend trip away. We'll see

    Yep I agree scrolling down to Live TV and then all the way over provides a better UI of what is currently on and you can sort via popular or channel.

    With the default guide at the top I can't change the day or figure it out. On the iPad app you tap the day and select upcoming days on the TV I'm stumped. Setting future recordings for the week ahead was easier on the iPad app but synced perfectly to all devices.

    Also with fast forward its default to 10s and needs a double tap 30s option added. You can tap the trackpad and then scrub forward or backward but there's no way to see where the video or commercial status is. Hopefully this will be improved upon with more comprehensive fwd and rwd.

    Lastly tonight I have noticed some frequent buffering on different channels. Could be a local issue or more people trying out the service with it sitting at the 5th top Apple TV app now.

    It's not perfect but some adjusts here and there will sure help.

    This looks interesting. I have been over to the PSVue website trying to figure out if I can get local live channels in my area but can't find that info anywhere. Does anyone have a link to somewhere I can put in my zip code or tell me if the Chicago area has live locals?

    On the Playstation Vue website, enter your ZIP Code (click on the pin icon in the upper right corner). The first channels that show up in the listing will either be the On Demand icons for the networks, or the station logos for your own locals.

    I am watching NFL red zone on my psvue app from my Apple TV. Not my fire tv. Alert! This is not a drill! :):D:p

    Thanks for that. I had actually done that earlier but didn't catch the local vs network logos. Unfortunately, only CBS available for me, which pretty much kills my interest. I can't get OTA in my condo (too much interference/weak signal), so whatever service I use has to have local channels.

    For football fans, NFL games both on my local CBS and Fox are playing on the Apple TV fine, it's mobile restricted on the PS Vue iOS app.

    You can check by clicking the map pin in the upper right corner of their page. But I *believe* Chicago has all the live locals (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX). That does increase the cost, however.

    After seeing your post, I went back to check as I thought I might have only been looking at the lowest tier. But the results looked the same. Channel 2 (CBS) is there, but the rest (ABC, NBC, FOX) look to be on-demand (no channel #'s associated with there symbol like for CBS).
