    That is not always any bargain. When we had C-Band you used to be able to buy it ala carte or by the package, by the time you picked out the services you wanted it was sometimes more costly than just picking a package that had the channels you wanted in it. The reason being you pay more for the individual ala carte channels than you do for the same channels already in a package.

    The higher ala carte cost is because it takes less time and costs less for program providers to assign a setup package to a receiver, than to go through a list and assign them one at a time.

    What is cool about introducing commercials where there were none before?

    "Let's commercialize it"? Go run News of the World, Mr. Saftler. And take your damned commercials with you.

    One more commercial-filled, hopelessly-edited, trashy old movie channel. That's OK, just fewer channels to scroll through in my soon-to-be-edited guide. No need to waste valuable HD bandwidth on this mess.

    Thank God for TCM and HDNET movies.

    Didn't you read the article? They are putting on newer movies some of them real blockbusters, not just the old 40 year old movies of the past.

    If you own a DVR, there is no such thing as a commercial interruption anyway.

    We want Fox Movie Channel in HD. No more games, no more excuses.

    Yeah but they are editing for content and time which makes the FXM block of movies un-watchable in my opinion. :nono2: I'll stick with the premium HD networks or rent the Blu-ray before I will watch a movie butchered on the basic cable networks...

    I just switched from Xfinity to Directv. Xfinity had HBO and Starz 3D programming on their On Demand. Are there any plans for Directv to add this to their On Demand lineup?

    Edited for content? What is your source? I hope not Wikipedia because they also have no source.

    There are some people who hate any channel with Fox's name on it for political reasons. They don't like Fox News so they also don't like Fox Movies or Fox Sports.

    Again, what is so cool about adding commercials where there were none before. Don't give me that DVR crap. Commercials are still interruptions especially when the programming is not built for commercials (e.g., theatrical movies).

    Oh, give me a break. Not everything is about politics. In fact, Fox entertainment is quite liberal. Ever watch their shows? Many of them are hated by the Christian right.

    And since Fox themselves said they were edited for content, you want to stop your uninformed rant?
