PlayStation Vue TV service drops all Viacom channels, including Comedy Central and MTV

Sony has been expanding its PlayStation Vue streaming TV service in recent weeks, bringing it to Android TV, along with PCs and Macs via the web. It's also added high-profile new channels, such as HBO and Cinemax in September.

More new channels are on the way, but Sony has announced the loss of some existing channels in its line-up. From 12:01am ET on November 11, all Viacom-owned networks will be dropped from PlayStation Vue, including Comedy Central, Spike and MTV.

"As part of our ongoing evaluation of the PlayStation Vue offering," Sony said, "we have determined that removing the bundle of channels from Viacom is the best way for us to continue to offer the most compelling value to our fans."

But while those channels are on the way out, Sony also announced that it is adding BBC America and NBA TV from today. VICE and more local broadcast stations from CBS and Fox are said to be "coming soon".

Sony added that it will continue to add further channels, as well as supporting more devices, "that are highly requested by our fans".
