HBO arrived on Sling TV in April of last year, making the service a much more attractive option for potential cord-cutters. Now another premium movie channel has come to the service — making it feel just a bit more like cable.
“Sling TV is the first live standalone Internet TV service to deliver Cinemax to an audience of cord-cutters and cord-nevers,”
Cinemax is available for Sling TV customers for $10 per month, the same price it would go for as an add-on channel to a cable subscription. However, as with cable, you’ll need to subscribe to

As with many other Sling TV channels, Cinemax includes the standard live — or “linear,” as that seems to be the favorite wording from TV networks these days — channel, as well as on-demand programming.
In addition to movies, the channel offers a number of popular original series including Strike Back, Hunted, The Knick, and Banshee, which kicks off its fourth and final season on April 1. Cinemax is premiering two new shows, Quarry and Outcast later this year.
The addition of Cinemax bolsters the service’s movie lineup, which in addition to HBO, features Epix, Sundance, and Turner Classic Movies bundled together in its “Hollywood Extra” package for $5 per month.
