When you have a cable or satellite provider and subscribe to a premium cable channel, you have multiple ways of watching channels like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, The Movie Channel and Starz online, live streaming and on demand. Your subscription to services like DirecTV or Comcast will allow you to download apps and log in to them. Each cable and satellite company provides its own apps as well. You can find these apps in your favorite mobile store.
Those who want to bypass a cable or satellite subscription can order premium cable channels a la carte.
