HBO Now App Coming to PS4 & PS3, PlayStation Vue Getting HBO Soon
Sony announced today that the HBO Now app is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in the United States ahead of the October 2 premiere of Westworld, the new drama from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Additionally, HBO and Cinemax are coming to PlayStation Vue before October 2, priced at $15 each per month.
“If you already subscribe to HBO NOW, you can use the HBO NOW app when it launches on PS4 and PS3,” Sony explained. “If you don’t already have a HBO NOW subscription, and subscribe to HBO through PlayStation Vue, you can access HBO on both PlayStation Vue and HBO NOW.”
Currently, the HBO Go app is available for PS4 and PS3 in the US through the PlayStation Store. As HBO explains on their website, HBO Now is a standalone, streaming-only service, while HBO Go is included as part of your cable subscription.
