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.
