I’ve been a huge supporter of the “cord-cutting” movement. Cable subscriptions are simply way too pricey anymore and most of those plans are full of fluff, with the high tier plans being the ones that give you the most and usually better channels. However, ever since I picked up a few Amazon Fire TV’s and signed up with PS Vue, I’ve never looked back. For just $39.99, I have just about every channel I had with cable and more.
Well, now it’s about to get better as HBO and Cinemax are making their way to PS Vue. For an additional $15, you’ll be able to add both of services to you current PS Vue subscription. That’s way better than paying $30 for just one of those on cable.
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.
We’re excited to make HBO and Cinemax a reality for our PlayStation Vue users later this month and to bring HBO Now to PS4 and PS3. We’ll have more news to share soon, so stay tuned to the blog for more information. You can also visitwww.psvue.com.
Ever since the debut of the PS Vue service, Sony has been picking up more and more channels. Now it features two of the biggest movie services, on top of ESPN, NFL Gameday, Showtime, Syfy, TNT, TBS, NBC, Disney Channel and EPIC. Cable is looking less and less desirable anymore, especially if Sony keeps this up.
