You will be able to take advantage of Apple TV's Siri Remote and easy navigation with touch, while enjoying PlayStation Vue's sleek look and feel. PlayStation Vue brings popular programming to Apple TV, from live sports networks like ESPN and NFL Network, to premium channels like AMC, FX, HBO, and Showtime.

PlayStation Vue subscribers can link their accounts to the Apple TV after downloading the PlayStation Vue app, which is available as of this morning. PlayStation Vue allows for content to be streamed simultaneously on up to five devices at once, making it ideal for families.

Going to take a serious look at this. Having cloud DVR will also be awesome.
Your Vue login credentials will also give you access to 99% of the TV channel apps:

With this and (hopefully) DirecTV Now coming to the ATV, it will make cord-cutting a more-likely possibility.

No Comedy Central :(

Apparently, up until last week Comedy Central was included, but they just dropped it.
It was dropped because Viacom are greedy *******s. Same type of crap cable and satellite companies go through every couple of years. Hopefully it will be back eventually.

I was curious too, so I poked around a bit. Sounds like the answer is yes. This AppleTV-specific page ('https://www.playstation.com/en-us/network/vue/apple-tv/') looks like one can activate the service with only the Apple TV.

$30/mo for the low-end package could be quite attractive, especially if it could supplant Hulu, for cord cutters.
You don't need a Playstation at-all. You do need to set up a PSN account for it. I've been using it on FireTV for about six months now. It is amazing, and blows away Sling. Hopefully Sony will eventually drop the "Playstation" part off the name as it is confusing for people. I have heard it referred to lately by them and others as just "Vue".
