Premium movie channel HBO and streaming platform HBO Max are set to debut their on-screen adaptation of PlayStation game series The Last of Us on Sunday, January 15th. The series comes 10 years later, after the game originally released by developer Naughty Dogs on the PS3 in 2013, and later remastered for the PS5. Naughty Dogs, also known for their Jak and Daxter and Uncharted games series, had this to say:

However, to enjoy an ad-free experience, you will have to upgrade to the premium plan, which is also needed to stream in 4K Ultra High Definition, costing $15.99 a month or $149.99 for the yearly subscription. Unfortunately, the PlayStation savings is only valid for the lower tier of HBO Max.
