Fans of soft-core can rejoice, Cinemax has finally joined the likes of HBO, Showtime, and Starz by offering their services to those without satellite or cable TV. Following in the footsteps of HBO, customers of Sling TV now have the option of adding Cinemax as an add-on to their base subscription.
According to a recent announcement from Sling TV, customers with the “Best of Live TV” or one of the Sling International base packages can add Cinemax a la carte for an additional $10 per month. This entitles subscribers to the same live content airing on cable TV, along with the on-demand content currently available through MAX GO (The cable providers internet streaming package).
While mostly known for it’s popular “After Dark” content (by a large silent majority), it has also broken into the original content business with series like “Strike Back,” “Hunted,” “The Knick,” and “Banshee.” The network has also announced that it will be releasing two new shows, “Quarry” and “Outcast.”
Aside from Cinemax original, subscribers will be able to stream a fairly large movie catalog online. Counting both movies and TV shows, subscribers will have hundreds of entertainment options to choose from.
This is the third premium network available through Sling TV as customers with a base package can subscribe to HBO for $15 per month, and EPIX is available through the “Hollywood Extra” $5 add-on package.
