Home Box Office is launching a second high-definition-TV service for its sister network,
Cinemax.

The pay channel will begin transmitting an East and West Coast high-def feed
of Cinemax sometime in the second half of next year.

Cinemax HDTV will offer 70 percent of Cinemax's programming in high-definition
format.

The remaining 30 percent of shows will be converted to an enhanced format.

HBO launched its first HDTV feeds in 1999.
