Sony should know in order to make money they need to spend money their PPV app is not even that good I watched one PPV on it and I just went back watching them on my 360. I know Sony puts gaming first but that does not mean they shouldnt at least give us or the people who want it a WWE app or a UFC app or even an HBO one

Who cares about apps? My PS4 is for games. Everything on the Xbox One is just useless crap. It's a waste of space on the hard drive. If you want to watch HBO, turn on the TV.

I have a 360, but agree on the app's. I have things installed as back ups, but much prefer my BD player to run my streaming apps. It is kind of like a phone. I want one where it actually does what it was intended for. Of course with my phone I'd love to have a clear call and nice camera too.

Haha. Agree. Though I wouldn't mind more apps on my ps4. With the HBO app don't you need subscribed to hbo on cable or directv?

That's what I would assume. So, if you already have HBO trough a TV provider, why would you need it on your game console? Every TV provider offers OnDemand now, so it's not like you're restricted to their schedule (If that's your reasoning for using the app instead of your set top box).

Wouldn't the TV already be on for use with either console?
