The companies also announced that the HBO channels are coming to PlayStation Vue, which is Sony’s streaming service for TV channels. If you subscribe to HBO through PS Vue you will also have access to HBO Now app free of charge. Additionally, Sony is adding Cinemax. Both HBO and Cinemax will cost $15 per month through PS Vue on top of your regular TV package.

HBO Now is available as a stand-alone streaming service for $15 per month.

HBO Now was launched in March 2015 in the US, exclusively on Apple TV, as a stand-alone service and competitor to Netflix. It has since been expanded to many more devices but has yet to expand globally.
