HBO Now will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems for new and existing HBO NOW subscribers.
The launch of HBO and Cinemax on PlayStation Vue marks the first time that either network’s live programming is available directly to consumers as a standalone offering without the need of a bundle subscription.
Users who subscribe to HBO through PlayStation Vue will also be able to access HBO NOW on all supporting devices at no extra charge. HBO and Cinemax will be available for $15 each per month through PlayStation Vue.
“By expanding the ways that PlayStation users can access unparalleled programming like Game of Thrones, The Night Of and Last Week Tonight, we’re demonstrating our commitment to flexibility and quality,” said Jeff Dallesandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Digital Distribution and Business Development, HBO.
HBO and Cinemax on PlayStation Vue, and HBO NOW on PS4 and PS3 systems, will launch ahead of the Oct. 2 premiere of the highly anticipated new HBO series Westworld, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
With a PlayStation Vue subscription, users can access programming from more than 50 network mobile apps or websites, simply by logging in with their PlayStation™Network email address and password. The mobile apps and websites are developed by network programmers and are a separate offering from PlayStation Vue, but can be used at no additional cost.
