Sony has today retired the Live Events Viewer app on the PS4. Instead, live videos can now be purchased directly from the PlayStation Store. The app was never officially released outside the US, so those in Europe and elsewhere won’t be losing much. In addition, the PS3 won’t be able to receive any Live Events.
The full content of the email sent by Sony can be read below.
As a valued customer of Live Events Viewer we wanted you to know that starting January 10th you’ll be able to purchase the latest and greatest Live Events, directly from PlayStation®Store on PS4™!
On January 10th, the Live Events Viewer app will be retired, but you can continue to purchase and view events until that date. Please note that unfortunately Live Events will no longer be available on PS3™.
From January 10th, be sure to visit PlayStation® Store on PS4™ for a new and improved Live Events experience.
Visit “My Videos” in PlayStation®Store to watch your purchased events.
Thank you for your loyalty,
PlayStation® Live Events Team
