Sony cuts ties with Ustream on PS4 in August

Sorry, Ustream fans. Sony apparently doesn't want you around anymore.


Sony will be cutting ties with Ustream on August 1, 2016, and as a result, PlayStation 4 owners won’t be able to use a number features from the service.

The features that will be terminated include the ability to broadcast gameplay to Ustream and viewing Ustream broadcasts from “Live from PlayStation” on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and the PlayStation App.

As a result, PlayStation 4 owners will now only be able to broadcast their gameplay on YouTube, Twitch, or dailymotion while also being able to view broadcasts from these services.

Considering the rise of both Twitch and YouTube Gaming, it’s surprising Sony didn’t stop Ustream support sooner to further improve customer experience on more popular services. Now let’s see how long it takes Sony to kick dailymotion to the curb in favor of just Twitch and YouTube support.
