    PlayStation Vue Expands Local Broadcast Stations With 200 New Additions Across the U.S.

    Alot of new additions, including the remaining three for the DMA it puts me in.

    but....
    Yesterday PlayStation Vue added 200 live locals. The bad news is you can’t DVR any of them according to the PlayStation Vue help page you can’t record them. This is not a new issue as you already couldn’t DVR HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax. You also couldn’t fast forward FOX, FX, and FXX recordings.

    A statement on PlayStation Vue’s website simply says “Due to streaming rights, however, select channels and programs cannot be recorded to DVR.”


    There is a list of which channels you cannot record on at the link-

    PlayStation Vue Won't Let You DVR The 200 Newly Added ABC, FOX, & NBC Locals - Cord Cutters News

    Yeah, I noticed that after I posted. A positive that they added, but a big negative on that front.

    So you can't record any of the new local channels, not just the Fox affiliates? (you haven't been able to record/fast-forward on any Fox channels on Vue for several months now)

    Any of the new ones, something to do with streaming rights and such, which is odd, considering it is a streaming service.

    Weird. No such restrictions on YouTube TV for the recently re-added Tribune-owned channels. In fact, their return coincided with dropping any restrictions on accessing recordings on Fox stations (no more forced VoD on Fox, FX, FXX, FX Movies, etc.)

    I believe this is something coming to all providers DVRs, the broadcasters know they can't keep increasing the fees at such a high percentage anymore. so at the next contract talks they will say to providers we will not ask for a big increase if all your customers with DVRs can no longer skip commercials, then they will hit advertisers with bigger fees since no one can skip them anymore.

    That wouldn't surprise me if that turns out to be the case, but it's interesting that Vue went in one direction with Fox and these other new locals, but YTTV just went the opposite direction.

    Thanks to Hdhomerun we don't have to worry about that. You can even delete them completely

    Someone reported in the FB Vue group that they were able to record on their newly added Fox affiliate, a local news show and a primetime show.

    So they added Fox and ABC for my locals. Still no NBC or CBS. How does that work if you can't record? You just get the VOD versions of the shows you want to watch on those channels?

    Generally, yes. You just use the vod versions.

    That's too bad. I like the channel line up of PS Vue better but Hulu live has ABC, FOX, and NBC channels available here and can record from them also.
