The prices have been adjusted a couple of times and the channel lineup also changed.

Multi-view comes as part of a new effort by Sony to introduce more sports-oriented features to PS Vue. Users can watch up to three live channels simultaneously on the same screen. Additionally, this service can be availed on a wide range of devices like PS3 and PS4, as well as Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Roku streaming devices.

Sony is launching a new multi-view feature for its United States streaming service PlayStation Vue that allows viewers to watch more than one live channel at once. This feature allows users to watch three different streaming channel on the same time and on the same screen.

Myers further explains, "To use this feature, just press and hold X on any live TV program from the Guide or Live TV row of the home screen to open up the selection screen for multi-view".

If you are a fan of two or more sporting teams that play at the same time, watching several games at once can be great. The March Madness games are shown on GameSpot parent company, the CBS, as well as on TNT, TBS, and TruTV.

The feature is available in high-end pay-TV DVRs like Dish Network's Hopper (which calls it "Sports Bar Mode"), but it isn't something that has been available in virtual MVPD services yet. To keep you from going insane, only the main screen (the largest one) in multi-view will play audio. You can then select any other ongoing live programs from the Live TV strand and start streaming them alongside one another.

The feature also only works on the PS4, and not Vue's other supported platforms. This is made with sports fans in mind who want to watch UFC and maybe the National Football League at the same time.

While talking about how useful this feature will be, Dan Myers, who is the Head of Product also made special mention of a new upcoming feature for sports buffs.
