5-Day FREE preview of Cinemax & HBO

Great Black Friday deals may be coming but nothing is better than FREE.

Starting on Thanksgiving you get FIVE days of FREE HBO and CINEMAX on TDS TV

Tune in starting at 6 a.m., November 28 and enjoy all the great shows and movies until 6 a.m. Tuesday, December 3. Which, of course, means you should give us a call at 7 a.m. on that Tuesday to order both channels so you can keep enjoying them every day of the year 🙂 .

You’ll find HBO on channels 802-818 in SD and channels 1802-1818 in HD. Watch CINEMAX on channels 826-838 in SD and channels 1826-1838 in HD.

There are lots, and lots, and lots of great things to watch, from original series to awesome movies. Here’s just a few:


His Dark Materials, HBO
Based on Philip Pullman’s beloved books, the series follows Lyra on her quest to find her kidnapped friend.  The series stars Dafne Keen (who you may remember from the movie Logan), James McAvoy, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.  It looks amazing!

Watchmen, HBO
Certified Fresh with a 96% Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer score, this dark comic book-based series is anchored by the amazing performance of Regina King.  It’s being called “intricate” and “fearless” this series is a must-watch.

Silicon Valley, HBO
It’s the final season of this Emmy-Award winning comedy centered on five young men trying to make it with a start-up.

Warrior, CINEMAX
Inspired by Bruce Lee’s writing, this new series is set in 19th Century San Francisco. Binge all 10 episodes on Saturday!
