Ditching your cable TV subscription just got easier, no matter where you live in the United States.

PlayStation Vue, a service that streams live and on-demand TV over the Internet, is now available everywhere in the country, and for a lower price than ever. Starting today in 203 US TV markets, you can subscribe to the service for as little as $30 per month.

Vue is designed as an alternative to a traditional pay TV package from a satellite or cable TV provider. It delivers numerous live TV channels and on-demand programming, just like cable TV, and also lets you record shows to a “cloud DVR” and watch multiple TVs around the house from one account.

Until today Vue was only available in seven major metropolitan areas: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco and Miami. Packages in those cities start at $40 per month and include local broadcast TV channels, namely ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC (but not PBS).

If you live in one of the 203 other TV markets newly served by Vue — places like Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Phoenix, Portland, and St. Louis, as well as smaller cities and towns in all 50 states — you’ll only be able to subscribe to what Vue is calling “Slim” versions of its channel packages, starting at $30 per month.

First SlingTV, now PlayStation Vue goes national. Lots of choices bubbling up this year for Cord Cutters who like access to broadcast television. These two companies really are game changers.
