We have good news for those of you who enjoy watching HBO. The company will launch its apps on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. HBO and Sony did not give the release date, but we think the HBO apps will be available before October 2. This is when Westworld, the new series from HBO will be launched.
Moreover, they also said that Cinemax will be available on PlayStation Vue (a streaming alternative to cable television made by Sony). The networks will be available for a 15 dollars subscription, for every app. Those who will use them will have access to HBO Go, HBO Now and Max Go.
It seems that HBO wants to connect with console manufacturers and get to as many users as they can. HBO apps can be used also on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. We are expecting great things to happen in the future with these two big companies working together.
We are sure that this decision will make a lot of people happier. HBO was one of the most request channels for PlayStation Vue. Sony wants to have its users satisfied and will work with HBO as long as it takes to make them happy. This is the first time when HBO goes for a live programming, while Cinemax will be a standalone channel. HBO officials said that Sony decided the price for the networks. We are expecting many people to use them, as PlayStation has become very popular in the past few years.
HBO is the oldest operating pay television service in the United States. It was launched in 1972 and millions of people are using it. The technology developed and now we are able to have it on our smartphones, tablets or laptops. Not it will be also available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
There are more than 36 million houses in the United States who are subscribed to HBO. Moreover, it has 122 million subscribers worldwide. With TV series such as Game of Thrones or True Blood, HBO really seems to be one of the most popular brands of the moment. We will see how many users it will get on PlayStation.
