YouTube TV made a surprising announcement late last week, revealing that it has struck a deal with HBO to add the channel to its service later this year, at some time this spring. Also, the Google-owned streaming platform will add Cinemax, as well.

Rich Warren, president of WarnerMedia Distribution, said:
“As consumers’ media consumption habits continually evolve and the landscape becomes more and more dynamic, our goal remains constant, and that is to make the portfolio of WarnerMedia networks available as widely as possible. YouTube has been a valued partner for a number of years, and we’re pleased to not only extend our existing agreement, but also make HBO and Cinemax – and soon HBO Max – available to YouTube TV customers for the first time.”
