In October, The Information reported that Sony hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch to explore a sale of the service, which had 500,000 subscribers. One of the companies that Sony has discussed a sale with was fuboTV, but the report claimed that talks hadn’t gone anywhere.

Days later, news broke revealing that the live streaming service would be shutting down instead. The service, which debuted in 2015, was one of the first Live TV Streaming Services to launch — and is now the first vMVPD to shut down.

PlayStation Vue had fallen behind vMVPDs like Sling TV and Hulu Live TV, which each have over 2 million subscribers respectively. YouTube TV has never disclosed subscribers, but reports place them at 1 million, while fuboTV is at around 300,000.
