HBO Now Launching On PS3 & PS4, HBO Now On PlayStation Vue

Sony had a couple announcements regarding HBO access on PS3, PS4, and PlayStation Vue platforms. The first, and what has been long-awaited, is the launch of HBO Now on both consoles. HBO Now is different from HBO Go (already available on PlayStation consoles), in that it doesn’t require a TV provider and subscription to HBO. HBO Now is a standalone, over-the-top service for cord cutters that costs $14.99 per month¬†and¬†gives subscribers all the content available from HBO (of course, decent internet service is required).

The second announcement is the launch of HBO and Cinemax channels on PlayStation Vue. Subscriptions to each separate service include the entire suite of HBO or Cinemax channels also without the need for a television service provider. HBO Now typically costs an additional $14.99 per month, while Cinemax (currently only available with Sling TV) will probably cost an additional $10 per month.

Both services will be coming before the October 2nd premiere of HBO’s original series Westworld, described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.”
