[=Cinemax=] is a premium cable network launched in 1980, which {{Creator/HBO}} owns as a "sister company", that specializes in airing movies. Much like HBO, it has a bouquet of multiplex networks (previously promoted under the name ''[=MultiMax=]''); these include [=ActionMax=], [=5StarMax=], etc. Unlike its rivals Creator/{{Showtime}} and Creator/{{Starz}}, Cinemax has not really focused on original programming throughout its history in {{prime time}} outside of documentary programming, though in 2011 it began to air the British import ''Series/StrikeBack'', with ''Banshee'' starting out 2013, and is currently preparing a television series adaptation of ''Film/TheTransporter'', with no less than four other primetime series in various stages of development/production. They also aired the final season of ''LiveActionTV/{{SCTV}}'' in the early 80s after NBC dropped it. What it airs late at night, however, has turned it into the stuff of legend for a whole generation.

They also aired the final season of ''LiveActionTV/{{SCTV}}'' in the early 80s after NBC dropped it. What it airs late at night, however, has turned it into the stuff of legend for a whole generation. You see, Cinemax has a block called Max After Dark that starts after its last prime time movie has ended (usually between 11 and midnight). Max After Dark is one of the only places on American television that airs softcore pornographic films and original series, usually with such names as ''Erotic Confessions'', ''Co-Ed Confidential'', ''The Best Sex Ever'' and ''Zane's Sex Chronicles''. In TheNineties, this gave Cinemax a reputation as one of the edgiest and most risque networks on cable, earning it the nickname "Skinemax" -- a reputation that still holds, to some extent, even now that {{the internet|IsForPorn}} provides much more explicit content and its premium cable rivals have started pushing the envelope of what's permissible in prime time. Back in the day, adolescent boys would frequently stay up late at night in order to catch the skin flicks that would air then -- telling your friends in school that you caught late-night Cinemax was an easy way to establish yourself as one of the "cool" kids. It was far from hardcore pornography, and much of it was {{Bowdlerise}}d compared to your average Jenna Jameson skin flick, but for most kids back then, [[WhenIWasYourAge just seeing naked ladies on TV was enough]]. (Sister net HBO Zone also airs some of this content, as do most of the [=MultiMax=] networks.)
