The PlayStation View is finally on Roku devices. This service has finally come out today for Roku devices and it is coming out very soon for Android devices. Now I’m going to show you how to install it here. All you got to do is to go to the streaming channels, go to your new section.
You got the PlayStation view app, once you tap on it, you can go to the channel, you go ahead and install it from there. Now, let’s launch the app. One thing that I really like about the Roku device running PlayStation view is that it runs a lot faster than my Amazon fire TV.
Now one big difference here between the PlayStation 4 and the Amazon fire TV is that when you launch PlayStation view, it launches to a list of live TV, you can see something you recently watched, you can see my shows. These are basically all the shows that you are DVR in, because when you add a show as your favorite show on the PlayStation view, it will automatically DVR all the shows.
So you got all the featured channels, all the recent channels are here. And if you want to see all the channels, just click right there and it’ll switch to all the channels, where you can see all the channels available, depending on the package that you have.
The cheapest package on PlayStation View is $29.99 and it includes over 55 channels, which is not bad. You got recommended here, all the recommended shows and here you got featured shows as well.
So one thing to keep in mind is that if there’s a show right there. Let’s say I want to make that show as my favorite show or I got two presses, the start button here and I can see that you got series details. You got add to my shows or go to the show or the series details, click and you can see this right here, sometimes it’s going to seem a little bit different.
If you click right, there are series details you can see on Fox, that’s on Fox on demand, you can add it to your shows right here, all the seasons you like to see are there. So if I want to add it to my show, just click right there. And it’s going to add it to my show. Another easy way to add things to your show is that you really like animal kingdom.
There you press the start button and you click Add to my shows. And now that show is going to be automatically added to your shows without going through, the entire thing we did is to make sure the show is going to be right. Here are my shows and we’ll see all of my shows, and it should be added.
The other show we applied is here. That’s how you add shows on my shows and it will take you to a live channel. This is right, for example, on espn2 and you see what shows are playing now. Now some channels are on commercial break, you’re going to get this when they’re on commercial break, especially some ESPN channels.
Here let’s go ahead to, for example, CNN click, right there, you got CNN, you got the title of the show, that’s playing right now. Now let’s go and lower the volume. Here I’ll press the OK button, you can see information of the show right there on the top. And if I press the start button XE caption, you can turn it on or turn it off.
If there’s other languages available, you could tap right there and it will show other languages available. I can see this one does not have more languages available, click OK, click done. Well, now if you want to switch to another channel, what you’re going to do is to tap up and it will show you this right here, tap right, and you switch to another channel right there, which is all streaming live.
So, right now there is a commercial break. If I press right here, comedy central tosh point-o, that’s on commercial there, press right here, you got this, press the triangle button, and you get this right here. You turn it on or off and you’re good to go.
This service is finally here on Roku devices to be honest, this service runs way better here on the Roku device, and on my fire TV stick, so I got my shows there. For example, this is all DVRs, so I can always go back like I saw an old show.
If I click right there, I could go ahead and start watching an old show. I do like how this PlayStation View runs here on the Roku TV. The only big difference is that the experience, here is basically the same experience that you get on iOS devices and on tablets. When you launch the application instead of going to the live channel, you can go to where you left it off.
It actually goes to this menu right there, where you choose the channel you want to go live and which channel you want to go to. For example, if you want to go to your DVR section, you go to your DVR section. But it doesn’t take you directly to the live channel, which might be negative for some people. If you’re used to the PlayStation view app on iOS, you’re going to be very familiar with it.
So other than that, the most important thing is that it runs very smoothly.
You got the bar for settings, you got search, you can search for any specific show there, you can go to settings, and here you can see profiles. So if you have more people in your profile, you could add more people here to PlayStation View help. So you got here, you also got profile there. They will help you search settings profile and help.
So, I share this video with you, just to let you know that PlayStation View is finally on Roku devices. Yes, it’s coming soon for Android devices. So whenever it’s finally available on Android devices, I’ll go ahead and make another video for you. So you can see the experience of this service on whatever particular device I have at the moment.
