Probably not. But come time to renegotiate their contract, I bet they'll pick it up for a lower cost. With the HBO at $14.99 you only get hboGo. With Dish you get HBOGo and OD and the channels. That might be their rationale.
Sure it does, Banshee and Strike Back among a few others.
I've had Skinemax for years and never watched their original programming - with kids and a busy house, time is limited so, for premium shows, I stick with Game of Thrones on HBO (free weekends - the DVR is cranking) and Black Sails on Starz (BB@Home). I have always had Max/BB on some kind of promo or half off deal. I simply can't fathom how people pay full price for this stuff. Even $15 for HBO seems like a stretch.
Launching on Apple is about the stupidest platform they could go with. Should have went Android and/or Roku where there is an actual installed customer base and a good percentage of cord cutters.
