Ever wish you could subscribe to just one channel without a package? With PlayStation Vue you can now do just that.
À la carte channels have been the dream of cord cutters for a long time. Although the channels are limited in number, you can now buy HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Machinima, Fox Soccer Plus, and Epix Hits/Showtime each without subscribing to a package. PlayStation Vue announced that HBO and Cinemax will be available as à la carte channels just last week and will join PlayStation Vue in October.
If you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber with their premium PlayStation membership, you can get a discount on these channels, which makes it the least expensive way to get Showtime at just $8.99 a month over the typical $10.99 a month.
Machinima is also $1 off at just $1.99 a month. FOX Soccer Plus is just $12.99 over the typical $14.99, and the Epix Hits/Showtime premium pack is just $11.49 a month rather than the typical $13.99.
PlayStation Vue still offers their typical packages ranging between $29.99 a month and $44.99 a month. These plans can be subscribed to with or without the à la carte channels.
Although this may not be the à la carte service many may want, it is a step in the right direction. Sonys PlayStation Vue is the first cable-like provider to offer subscriptions to individual channels without the need to subscribe to a package.
