The Live Events Viewer app, was launched in 2013 on PS3 and 2014 on the PS4, lets users watch free and paid live content. As said on the official Playstation website:
“Live Events Viewer from Sony Entertainment Network delivers the best live events straight to your living room. Watch your favorite sports, music and entertainment events live or on demand.”
- Watch live or catch up on-demand
- No subscription, no commitments, pay as you go
- Includes pay-per-view and free events
- New events added weekly
However, this service is being discontinued on January 10 2017 in North America. On the same day this service is being discontinued PS4 users can download a paid version of the service on the Playstation Store. For any PS3 users looking for this service, they will be disappointed. Unlike the PS4, the PS3 will not be receiving any replacement for the discontinued service. This can possibly be due to the fact that Sony wants consumers to focus on the PS4 and get their attention away from the older PS3.
