Turns out, the addition of those services came much sooner than we all thought because some Reddit users are already claiming that they have been able to add-on HBO and Cinemax Now to their Vue package through the website.
Reddit user Pipboy3500 posted, “There is a new package called Ultra Slim. It bundles in Showtime, and HBO. The cost is $65. Edit 1: Vue comes up as a provider for the HBO Now app, not HBO GO.
