Sony's attempt at killing your pay-tv subscription is available on Android now -- just like the company promised. What's more, PlayStation Vue also has a few new features on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. On the former, the channel guide has a video window in the upper right now, so you can keep an eye on what you were watching as you scroll through other viewing options. It's essentially what cable and satellite guides have offered for years. If you're using your PS3 as a media machine, the addition of a quick navigation overlay, which offers a "last channel" option among other tweaks, should be welcome; it's also available on PS4.

Using the app on a second-gen Fire TV? You'll find 60 FPS video support in addition to the aforementioned quick nav overlay next time you access the service. Sony says that a few of these new bits were the result of fan-requests, so maybe, just maybe, the outfit will hear the pleas for Android TV and Apple TV apps next.
