Happy news for all you Playstation Vue subscribers: starting today you can enjoy all the shows from HBO and Cinemax as either individual subscriptions or part of newly announced Ultra plan.
Hit us up after the break for all the details.
Streaming services have long been overtaking traditional cable TV as a way to enjoy your favorite shows, movies and live content and PlayStation has been pretty successful with its PlayStation Vue complete with 100+ live channels and plenty of on-demand content. Users will be able to add live streaming of HBO or Cinemax as standalone channels each for $15 per month. PlayStation announced that they will be the first “internet-based pay-TV service” to offer that without having to subscribe to some kind of bundle.
Of course, you still have the option for a big bundle of content as PlayStation is also introducing a new Ultra subscription plan, which will include 100+ channels as well as HBO and Cinemax. This plan will go for either $64.99 or $74.99 depending on location. If you subscribe with any of those available options you will also get access to the HBO Now service at no extra charge to enjoy every one of the channel’s past and current content. Also worth noting is the the HBO now app is launching today for the PS4 and PS3.
