Tonight at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, the company announced its plans to launch PlayStation Vue in Los Angeles and San Francisco tonight. The cloud-based TV service will bring "live TV, movies and sports without a cable or satellite subscription."

"We're pleased to expand PlayStation Vue's packages to two additional major TV markets, representing the first time consumers on the West Coast will have access to their favorite live and catch-up TV content, as well as cloud DVR with unlimited capacity," said Dwayne Benefield, head of PlayStation Vue.

"We are seeing strong engagement from PlayStation fans in the three cities where we initially launched, and the introduction of a-la-carte channels nationwide provides viewers even greater choice and flexibility."

Sony also announced that in addition to partnerships with providers such as Showtime, Vue will also feature a brand new channel from Machinima.

Showtime will be available through PlayStation Vue for $10.99 a month starting in July. For PlayStation Plus members it will be available for $8.99. Subscribers will also get a 30-day free trial. Fox Soccer Plus will be available through PlayStation Vue for $14.99 per month. For PlayStation Plus members, the price will be $12.99.

PlayStation Vue in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas will deliver up to 85 channels per market through three subscription packages that range in price from $49.99 to $69.99 per month with no long-term commitment.

According to Sony's Andrew House, PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to subscribe to PlayStation Vue packages at a discounted rate.

It is expected that Sony will release more details on the service soon.
