PlayStation Vue Lets You Watch England vs Wales Online
How’d you like over 100 channels sound with no contract to sign and the ability to cancel anytime? That would be PlayStation Vue’s Elite package, which includes ESPN, so you can watch the England vs Wales live stream. But their Core and Access plans also include ESPN, so if you need a more affordable package that still has a bunch of channels, you can have that. Their packages start at $29.99 a month.
PlayStation Vue is optimal for residents of LA, New York, San Francisco, Dallas, Philadelphia, Miami, and Chicago. Why? Because PlayStation Vue has the access rights for local channels live in those markets for CBS, NBC, Fox, and ABC. If you don’t live in one of those markets, however, it still is worth considering, because you get all of the national network programming for all of those save CBS on-demand the next day on Vue.
PlayStation Vue works on Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, Amazon Fire TV products, and of course, PS3 and PS4. But don’t plan on being able to watch a lot of Vue programming on the go – it is limited to your home base with some (very few) exceptions for iPhone and iPad. Our PlayStation Vue review lists the full details of this service.
If you’re in the UK, the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub apps will work for you. Outside the UK, you could use a VPN to change your IP and still use those players. However, this is oftent considered moral grey area.
