Watch HBO and Cinemax on PlayStation Vue starting today

Just in time for the 'Westworld' premiere this weekend.


PlayStation is beefing up the premium offerings on its PS Vue streaming TV service. As of today, HBO and Showtime will be available as part of the new Ultra ($64.99 to $74.99 per month based on location) plan. Don't feel like ponying up that much? Both HBO and Cinemax are $15 per month on their own. A post on the PlayStation Blog says that this is the first internet-based pay-TV service to offer the channels both live and streaming without a bundled package.

What's more, subscribing will also give live access to the aforementioned channels, not just after-broadcast streaming via HBO Now. And on that note, HBO's fully standalone streaming app comes out today on PS4 and PS3. Assuming your cable company (looking at you, Comcast) supports it, of course.
