Among the changes at Sony’s streaming TV service, the company announced its PlayStation Vue service will lose all Viacom-owned channels this week. Via PlayStation.Blog, Dwayne Benefield, VP at PS Vue, mentioned the addition of channels and changes to its lineup coming soon.
While Sony announced it will be adding BBC America, NBA TV, Vice, as well as local broadcast TV stations from networks Fox and CBS, the removal of all Viacom networks just wasn’t expected by many.
Starting on November 11 at 12:01am Eastern, all Viacom networks won’t be available. Among the channels to be removed in the next few days: Comedy Central, Spike, MTV, BET, CMT, Nickelodeon.
Though Sony did not offer a detailed explanation for the removal of the mentioned networks, it will have a greater challenge to face against other services such as Sling and the upcoming DirecTV Now.
