    I have not heard of it, for new subscribers, yes. But, it can't hurt to call (or do an online chat, or ask a rep here) and ask.

    I just got a "Thank You" letter from E* announcing that I'm now getting the "EPIX" pack (I did not know there was a separate EPIX pack) free for 3 months.

    No mention of Blockbuster and the rest of the BBMP channels are still in the red.

    I have Top-250 HD.

    I've had 292 and some of the others for a long time. 380 and 381 are still red though.

    Hey, when did they pull Hallmark Movie Channel out of the top 250??? I could have sworn it was a part of my 250 package. Encore Suspense, too was in 250.

    Or are they putting the same channels into different packages? Well they must be, it's true for EPIX.

    So what's the difference it "Epix Pack" and "Platinum" and "BB"? Sure hope this doesn't mean Platinum is going to $7 on top of the $10 BB fee... aren't all those movie channels still part of Platinum (now BB)?

    The Epix package has Epix 1, 2, and 3 in the package (a-la-carte package), which is $7 per month. DISH Platinum, which is now called Blockbuster Movie Pass, has 23 channels in the package, which has Epix 1 and 2 included in the package. This package is $10 per month. Epix 3 is also included with America's Top 250 package and above. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.

    why isn't all the hd in the top 250 and they should take all the movies from HBO and all the higher packet like showtime and put that in the movie pass?

    I don't get what HBO or Showtime has to do with the Blockbuster Movie Pass Package? What would make you think HBO or Showtime would allow them to be put in that package, for $10? No one wants them in that package, it would cost about $35 or more.

    what does Mav-tv have too do with movies and Palladia and World fishing network those are not Movie channels HBO has tons of Movies on it and so does showtime those two make sense to have it on Blockbuster movie pass the other don't! and being on the blockbuster movie pass for both give them Showtime and HBO rights at blockbuster for opening movies that means HBO and showtime both can have a spot at blockbuster and those company want there movies seen not just sit in the dark where no one seen what they are showing! i know tons of people that don't have showtime or HBO because the price is too high this lowers the price and let HBO and showtime get viewers!

    Thanks, Coolman. I've had all those channels for a while, since I have top 250 and Platinum.

    I guess I don't understand why you think HBO, one of the most or the most subscribed to premium channel, that charges $16 now, would go into a package that costs $10, and that is for all the channels there now. They would get nothing. No one wants them in that package to raise the price, if they wanted HBO they would get it. The biggest selling point is the price of the package. You are suggesting to have HBO and Showtime, Blockbuster renting and streaming, and whatever other "higher packet" (your words) in that package. Sure, for the price of around $52.

    For $10 people get blockbuster blu-ray or DVD, or games, free to rent as many as you want a month (one at a time), stream movies, if a store is in your area, use the store for free, watch several movie channels, and some other entertainment channels. It has become an extremely popular add on. I just don't see what HBO or the others has to do with that kind of package.

    By the way, the package you seem to be describing exists already. For $42 you can get all the premium movie channels.

    Kind of the same reason Netflix dropped Starz... so they could do streaming for $8. But for $2 more with Dish, you get 23 channels, many good HD movie channels, AND streaming of most of the channels you subscribed to, AND at least 8 newer DVD's per month (if not 10-15), no postage, no gas. I expect Dish to do the old "bait and switch Netflix type spin-off" someday, and start charging for some of this separately. Take advantage while available!
