PlayStation Vue is a possibility for some
PlayStation Vue is a more recent player in the streaming space, and it offers many of the same channels as Sling TV. The basic Access package costs $40 a month and includes NBC, Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC, NBCSN, and USA. If you want the Golf Channel as well, you’ll have to opt for the Core package for $45 per month.
So, to get complete Olympic coverage, you’d be paying about $10 more than for Sling TV. That may not sound like a lot, but consider that PS Vue also supports fewer devices; currently you can only stream to Playstation 3 and 4, Roku, and iOS and Android mobile devices.
If you’re already a Playstation Vue subscriber, you may have all you need to watch most Olympic events.
If you’re looking to invest in a streaming service for the Olympic Games, Sling TV is clearly the better deal. But if you’re already a PlayStation Vue subscriber, you likely already have everything you need to catch all the coverage. Here is our complete review of PlayStation Vue.
