It was one of the streaming services missing from our All PS5 Apps list at launch, but now HBO Max has been added to the PlayStation 5’s roster of on-demand video services. Many had expected this to be available day one, but we suppose a month wait isn’t too much of an inconvenience. The addition was inevitable when you consider that The Last of Us’ television adaptation is being created in collaboration with HBO.
Currently, HBO Max is only available in the United States, but it’s set to make a big play for subscribers this holiday, as new Warner Bros movies like Wonder Woman 1984, Dune, and The Suicide Squad will all be available day one as part of the subscription. A monthly membership currently costs $14.99.
