Dish Network, one of the top American satellite TV services, is finally officially offering HBO, as well as HBO Max, as part of its TV package. WarnerMedia, which owns HBO, has struck a new deal with the satellite TV company, after a three-year hiatus since it last hosted HBO’s popular streaming services.
HBO has only gotten massively bigger since then, jumpstarted by the hugely successful TV show Game of Thrones, and launching its premium tier HBO Max in 2020.
Now, three years later, it appears the involved parties have finally reached a resolution to the conflict, and Dish Network has decided to renew the contract to have HBO and HBO Max return to the network, along with Cinemax (which is owned by another subsidiary of WarnerMedia).
Customers who subscribe to the HBO Max Ad-Free tier via Dish Network will get a special a one-year discount of paying only $12/month, compared to the $15/month HBO usually charges. In order to get the $3 monthly discount, however, customers have to get their subscription by October 27 at the latest. After one year on the discount, they will be charged the regular $15 price.
Apart from HBO, Dish Network customers can now additionally subscribe to Cinemax for $10/month, which grants them access to More Max and 5-Star Max, along with Cinemax.
