At this moment right now, Sony has over 500,000 subscribers on its streaming TV platform, according to Cord Cutters News, which is considered a low number, compared to their competitors like Sling TV, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV, just to name a few.

The service will be shutting down at the end of January 2020, so right now, be on the lookout for a new live TV streaming service for those who currently use the service. There are plenty of other options out there in 2019, so it should not be too hard to find a new home for your live TV streaming.
