PlayStation Vue Channel Additions For Cord Cutters

Now that you’ve experienced PlayStation Vue with your free trial, you may have decided to stick with it—but maybe you’re craving even more content?

How To Get More PlayStation Vue Channels

PlayStation Vue subscribers can add to their existing subscription or subscribe monthly to a standalone channel.

Standalone channels don’t require a PlayStation Vue multi-channel subscription, making them a cheap way to try out a streaming service.

One of the best things about PlayStation Vue channel add-ons for new subscribers is that there are free trials for all of the available channels whether they are a standalone or added to a package.

Here are the current add-on channel offerings for PlayStation Vue.

HBO

…Addictive dramas, hilarious comedies, entertaining movies, thought-provoking documentaries, smart talk shows, sports and so much more.

HBO has become a powerhouse when it comes to original content, including award winning series like VEEP and Game Of Thrones.

Additionally HBO can be added to any of the other channel packages for $15/month or subscribed to as a standalone for the same price.

If you subscribe to a PlayStation Vue channel package, you can view HBO East and HBO West live.
