PlayStation Vue’s streaming TV service is losing all Viacom channels

[Sony] says today that it is losing all Viacom-owned channels, including Comedy Central, Spike and MTV, which will be removed from the service beginning on November 11. Reading between the lines of the announcement, it seems that the cost to continue to carry these channels was an issue here, given the move being positioned as the best way for Vue to continue to offer “value” to its customers. […] In addition to losing Viacom, PlayStation Vue’s announcement also said that it’s adding a few more stations, including BBC America and NBA TV, launching tomorrow, along with VICE and broadcast stations from CBS and FOX soon. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch
