Curious, is all online TV free or do the premium channels have a fee?

I was looking into setting parental controls online and looked thru the individual channel lineup and it occurred to me that HBO or Cinemax, Showtime, etc, might incur charges, even if viewed online, therefore requiring me to restrict access...or are they all free online?  Please advise...

You can only watch the channels that are part of your package, be it on the cable box (TV) itself, online, or through (mobile) apps.  There are free previews at times though, where channels (often premium channels) that might not be part of your package will become temporarily available.
