Sony has announced via a mail to PlayStation Network users that the PlayStation Live Events Viewer app will be discontinued on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
From the 10th January 2017, the app will not longer be used although PlayStation 4 owners will be able to buy live events coverage from the PlayStation Store instead.
PlayStation 3 owners are out of luck though and Sony doesn’t intend to offer the same functionality that the newer console has with regards to being able to acquire licenses to live events.
The PlayStation Live Events Viewer app launched in 2013 for PS3 and followed a year later for PS4. The app allows users to watch free and paid live events as well as other content.
