ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Sling TV today added Cinemax to its programming lineup for $10 per month, marking the first time Cinemax is available to consumers on a live standalone Internet TV service. Available to subscribers of “Best of Live TV” or one of Sling International’s base packages, Cinemax is now available across all Sling TV-supported devices.
“Sling TV is the first live standalone Internet TV service to deliver Cinemax to an audience of cord-cutters and cord-nevers,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “This announcement comes only days after we celebrated Sling TV’s one-year anniversary. Over the past year, we’ve established a history of industry firsts, and the addition of Cinemax is evidence of our intent to uphold this swift innovative pace.”
Previously, Cinemax and its authenticated app-based offering, MAX GO, were available only to customers who paid for traditional cable packages.
Cinemax on Sling TV features a live, linear channel found in the programming guide, as well as more than 500 on-demand movies and TV shows. Subscribing customers will get unlimited access to the channel’s popular original series, including The Knick, Banshee, Strike Back, Hunted, and the upcoming new series, Quarry and Outcast. Sling TV’s on-demand archive will house the same titles available in Cinemax’s MAX GO app.
