Sony is adding some heavy-hitting channels to its PlayStation Vue and will soon launch the HBO Now app on its consoles.

PlayStation Vue prepared itself for this year’s NFL season by adding the NFL Network at no additional cost, and today, Sony has announced it will be adding some additional highly-requested channels to its lineup, which consist of HBO and Cinemax, as well as support for HBO Now on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

HBO and Cinemax will make their PlayStation Vue debut some time later this month in time for the debut of Westworld’s premiere on October 2. The same release date window also includes the launch of the HBO Now app on both PS4 and PS3.

PlayStation Vue subscribers will be able to subscribe to either HBO or Cinemax directly without needing to take part in any bundles within the service, although there’s the option to add them directly to your existing plan if you have one. Both HBO and Cinemax will be available through PlayStation Vue for $15 each per month.
