PlayStation Vue users will no doubt be unhappy to learn the service has somewhat abruptly dropped Viacom networks starting today. More than 11 channels in total get the axe as a result: BET channels, Centric, CMT channels, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV channels, Nickelodeon channels, Spike, Tr3s, TV Land, and VH1.

Sony's PlayStation division explanation implies the channels simply weren't that popular, at least overall.

 

"As part of our ongoing evaluation of the PlayStation Vue offering, we have determined that removing the bundle of channels from Viacom is the best way for us to continue to offer the most compelling value to our fans, while enabling us to focus on the content our users request most," it says.

 

Regarding concerns over the lineup constantly changing, it says subscribers don't have to worry but that it is "always evaluating the PlayStation Vue service to ensure [it is] offering great value with the channels that matter most to [...] users."

 

On the bright side, other network channels are coming, including BBC America, Vice, NBA TV, and more.
