Sony and HBO announced today that they have teamed up to offer premium HBO shows on the PlayStation network. Typically, the only way you can see these shows is to subscribe to HBO on your cable network or get the DVDs.
The new deal apparently is not exclusive and the programs offered include many of the most popular current and old programs. Shows include True Blood, Rome, Entourage, and The Sopranos. Multiple season of each show are offered.
Exactly how much each episode or season will cost is unknown. I would rather see a streaming deal for these shows where you could rent. I have no desire to purchase shows on the PS3 myself, I would rent them though.
