HBO and Cinemax Coming to PS Vue, HBO NOW Launching Soon on PS4, PS3

You asked, we listened! Today, we’re pleased to announce that one of your most highly requested channels, HBO, is coming soon to PlayStation Vue. We’re also adding Cinemax to give you access to even more Hollywood hits and action-packed original series. Beyond PlayStation Vue, we’re also excited to announce HBO Now will soon launch on PS4 and PS3. If you subscribe to HBO through PlayStation Vue, you can access HBO Now on all supported devices at no extra charge.

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 visit www.psvue.com.

  • What languages would the HBO app support ?? and is there would be a subtitles language options like in the Netflix ?
    ANSWER PLEASE

  • thats great

  • Why did this take so long? It’s been on your competitor’s console since April. You guys have been a little too cocky with that lead in sales, oh wait, for the past two months you’ve been behind. So keep being arrogant, keep taking forever to bring features that others have already, or better yet, keep denying your users features others have like Fallout 4/Skyrim user mods. Way to go! Is that how it works? You get on top and you stop listening to your fans? Greatness awaits no more huh!

    Remember, consumers didn’t went running towards you during your early arrogant PS3 days, we consumers can put you in that position again.

  • Will HBO now be available in Germany or just in the USA?

  • Already have HBO Now on my Samsung Smart TV.

  • This is great news. Will there be HBO East and West? Also, I want to completely get rid of Sling TV, the quality is not as good as PS Vue, I am having to pay Sling TV so that I can watch A&E, History and BBC America. Is there any word yet when PS Vue will have History and BBC America? I really want to get rid of Sling TV.

    • Dido. the only reason why I’m still on sling and not vue is due to the channels listed. if Sling can get those channels then why can’t Vue?

  • Fix the guide for the Roku. Quality is great, but the guide is horrendous. Goona keep Sling until this changes. Not going to buy a PS4 because you would never offer other services to compete on your device. Or get on Apple TV.

  • Wonderful, thanks Vue. I had Cinemax through Sling. That and El Rey were the only things I missed. If you could add El Rey somewhere down the line, that would be awesome.

  • Any idea on if there will be a discount for plus members? Or a bundle like with Showtime and Epix?

  • The wife is STILL waiting on news for when the Lifetime Network, LMN and History channel will be available.. refuses to let me cut the cord until then…

  • Now we need Starz…

  • This is great, but I would rather see the On Demand channels (ABC, FOX, NBC) turned into live channels in my area (central coast, CA). Also CBS would be great. More football!!!

  • YES! YES! YES!

    FINALLY I CAN WATCH MY BOXING.

  • What I’m waiting and wanting is for playstaion vue to add more channels. Why does SlingTV have History channel and A&E but Vue does not. This is the only reason why I have not switched. so how about it, lets add the channels that you can get on sling so I can get off the crappy platform and make the move to Vue?

  • HBO NOW is for individuals access HBO that are not already subscribed through their television provider. HBO GO is what one uses when they subscribed through their television provider. I’m very confused as to why you would have someone use HBO NOW when they subscribe to HBO directly through their PlayStation Vue subscription. Under those conditions we should be using HBO GO, and logging in by means of our PlayStation Vue subscription. Very confusing . Please explain.

  • HBO NOW is for individuals who wish to access HBO, that are not already subscribed through a television provider.

  • I would like to see, WGN, The History Channel, and The NHL Network.

  • Since I’m cutting my cord for the first time, I’ll definitely get HBO and Cinemax as my only two standalone channels that I’ll ever get to watch when it comes to Game of Thrones, Banshee, Outcast, Quarry, Silicon Valley, True Detective, and of course Westworld! :D And BTW are you guys gonna also bring in multiplex channels like HBO2, HBO Latino, HBO Zone, or 5StarMAX to the standalone lineup? That’ll be special something when you guys bring in the multiplex channels for the standalone option :)

  • When will ABC, NBC and FOX be available live?

  • Will the PlayStation ever get a cw app.

  • I just got HBO through Vue. Is there any plans of HBO GO being offered from HBO through Vue?
