PlayStation Vue users can now catch up on all of the "Game of Thrones" drama they want.

Sony on Thursday said HBO and Cinemax are now available on its streaming TV service. Both are offered as standalone channels for $15 each per month (the same price as the HBO Now app that works on Apple, Android and Amazon devices).

HBO and Showtime -- but not Cinemax -- also will be part of a new high-end package, called Ultra, that costs $65 to $75 a month, up from the $45 to $55 price for the previous top tier, Elite. If you also want Cinemax in the top-tier package, it will cost you another $15 a month, bringing your total to as much as $90.


Sony earlier this month said HBO and Cinemax would be available ahead of the October 2 premiere of the new HBO drama "Westworld." The company has added many new channels, like the NFL Network and NFL RedZone in July, since launching its service. With the addition of the Ultra tier, Vue now has four channel packages ranging in price from $30 to $75 per month, depending on which city you live in.

Update at 3 p.m. PT to clarify that Cinemax isn't bundled in any packages.
