Traveling with Playstation Vue
If you travel with Playstation Vue, you can watch local channels for the area that you are visiting. However, you can’t DVR local channels for anywhere other than your home. You can DVR programs from your home’s local channels and watch those DVRed programs while traveling.
You can also watch your local sports channels while traveling. However, you will not be able to watch NHL games while you are away from home.
You need to sign into Playstation Vue in your home during the first 30 days of your subscription. From then on, you must sign in at your home once every 60 days. Otherwise you will receive error messages.
