DISH Strikes Carriage Deal for HBO Max, HBO & Cinemax


DISH Network and WarnerMedia have signed a new carriage agreement that covers the HBO Max streaming platform, as well as the HBO and Cinemax premium networks.

DISH TV customers can subscribe to the HBO Max Ad Free plan for $12 per month for up to 12 months when they subscribe by October 27, 2021, a discount off its standard $14.99 per month pricing. Additionally, DISH TV customers will get six live channels, including HBO, HBO Family and HBO Signature, as well as access to thousands of movies and shows on demand. DISH TV customers can also subscribe to Cinemax for $10 per month.

“Our number one priority at DISH is and always has been to provide our customers the best entertainment experience,” said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV. “Our customers now have greater choice in the content they can access. HBO Max and Cinemax offer iconic, beloved and acclaimed content that our customers will enjoy.”

“When we launched HBO Max, we set out to make it available to customers everywhere they chose to access premium content, and today’s launch with DISH is a key addition to our distribution strategy for the platform,” said Scott Miller, executive VP of business and legal affairs for WarnerMedia. “We’re excited that DISH customers can now access all that HBO Max—as well as our premium linear networks—have to offer.”
