Skinemax HD is a Canadian English language Category B specialty channel that broadcasts adult entertainment material entirely in high definition (HD), primarily in the form of pornographic films. The channel is owned by Fifth Dimension Properties Inc, a company wholly owned by Stuart Duncan, majority owner of Ten Broadcasting.
In October 2012, Fifth Dimension Properties Inc. was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch "Skinemax TV", a channel described as "a national, English-language specialty Category B service devoted to adult entertainment. The service will feature programming reflecting the latest trends in themes and styles of adult programming."
The channel launched in late June 2013 on Shaw Direct, marking the first Canadian pornographic television channel to launch in HD.
