More good news for cord cutters: Sony's streaming TV option for PlayStation owners has arrived.
PlayStation Vue has launched in Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia for the PS3 and PS4. It is accessible through Sony (SNE) PlayStation consoles and offers the kind of TV bundle that cable companies sell.

Vue delivers TV over the Internet to PlayStation consoles. It comes with a DVR-like service and lets customers watch both live programming and on-demand shows.

You can watch more than 80 channels on Vue, but you'll have to pay more for certain stations.

For $50 a month, you'll get 53 channels, including CBS, Fox, NBC, Bravo, CNN, Comedy Central, the Food Network, MTV, Nickelodeon and TNT. At $60 a month, you get access to a small handful of local sports networks, including New York's YES and the Big Ten Network. And for $70 a month, you'll be able to stream 26 more channels, such as FXM, Logo and Sprout.

Notably, Disney (DIS)-owned channels, including ABC and ESPN, are not currently available on the PlayStation.

Sony has been testing the service since November, and it expects to launch Vue more widely in the coming weeks and months.
