RIP Skinemax: Cinemax Looking to Ditch “After Dark” Softcore Porn
Top 10 Cinemax After Dark Series This Century - IMDb
Cinemax After Dark - or Skinemax, as it's more widely known - is a block of "adult programming" broadcast on Cinemax after midnight. Well, the good times are about to come to a close as Cinemax looks to rebrand, leaving Skinemax in the dust. Despite making a name for itself with its bawdy content, Cinemax wants no more of that. With the advent of the internet, no one really needs to wait until midnight to watch softcore porn on Cinemax and with VOD, less people are watching movies on cable. So HBO is repositioning Cinemax as a home to new original series like 'Banshee' and 'Strike Back' both, it should be noted, offer their fair share of nudity. It's seems like something of a no-brainer for Cinemax, who has struggled with re-branding over the years and have publicly bristled at the Skinemax nickname, yet, at the same time, it's sad to say goodbye to a pop culture mainstay.
