Dwayne Benefield, Vice President and head of PlayStation Vue, has announced that HBO and Cinemax will soon be available on the service! On top of this, HBO Now will be launched on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in the near future. How soon will you be able to enjoy these new options? Very soon!
HBO and Cinemax on PlayStation Vue, and the HBO Now app on PS4 and PS3 will launch ahead of the October 2 premiere of the highly anticipated new drama, Westworld, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
The launch of HBO and Cinemax on PlayStation Vue will mark the first time HBO’s live programming and Cinemax’s channel will be available directly to you as standalone channel offerings, without the need for a bundle subscription. That means through PlayStation Vue, you’ll have the option to subscribe to HBO and Cinemax as standalone channels or add them to your existing PlayStation Vue plan. Both HBO and Cinemax will be available for $15 each per month through PlayStation Vue.
This is certainly great news for everyone since now two very requested options will be available for both of Sony’s home consoles. The price ain’t bad either since $15 a month is very affordable.
