Cord cutters rejoice — Sony revealed today that it is bringing its popular streaming service, PlayStation Vue, to Apple TV.

Akin to other services like Dish’s Sling TV, Vue lets subscribers stream live programming from major channels like AMC, FX, HBO and ESPN.

What’s this change?

Bringing PlayStation Vue to Apple TV means subscribers will be able to navigate the company’s content using the Siri remote.

It’s unclear if Sony will participate in Apple’s new TV app. Netflix and Amazon won’t be available in the new app, which the consolidates the TV experience to one destination.

Customers will be able to stream Vue simultaneously on up to five devices. Vue also comes with a cloud-based DVR feature. To get the service, you’ll have to sign up via a web browser. Plans start at $29.99 (or $39.99 in select cities).

If you already have a PlayStation Vue account, you can link your subscription straight to Apple TV and start watching right away.
