The internet TV service has added another premium content option.
Sling TV has announced the addition of Cinemax to its lineup of movie channels and on-demand content. This marks the first time that the premium network has been made available to cord-cutting customers outside of a traditional cable or satellite package.
"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."
The Cinemax add-on gives users access to the live Cinemax channel and an extensive collection of more than 500 on-demand movies and TV series, including original series like 'The Knick' and 'Strike Back.' The package is available for an additional $10 per month to customers who sign up for the "Best of Live TV" core package at $20 per month or a Sling International base package. The "Best of Live TV" package currently includes ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, A&E, TNT, HISTORY, H2, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, IFC, El Rey, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Freeform, Disney Channel, CNN, Bloomberg TV, Local Now, Lifetime and Galavisión.
In addition to Cinemax, Sling TV also offers an HBO add-on package for $15 per month. The Sling TV platform is now available on Roku players, Roku TVs, the Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, PCs, Macs, Xbox One, Android and iOS devices, and more.
