Upcoming movies on premium channels

Does anyone know if there is a website that lists what movies are upcoming on the premium channels like HBO and Starz? I would be interested in knowing what movies will be upcoming on the premium network I subscribe to so that I don't have to order the movie on PPV.
DirecTV Access magazine used to have a page like this in it, but doesn't do it anymore. On the D* website, under "Premium Channels", if you select one, on the right hand side there is a "Premiere List" for that channel which shows some of the more popular movies/series premiering in the next month.
Hope that Helps.

Any hotels nearby?
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Since I travel a lot, I just take the HBO guide from the hotel.

Yeah, you can download those guides online. The problem is they only show upcoming releases one month in advance. It is usually several months or more before a movie goes from PPV to a premium channel. For example, The Last King of Scotland premiered on Cinemax a couple weeks ago. That was on PPV way back in June or July, so there is quite a lag sometimes.

It seems in the advent of DVD & home video, movie studios release a lot more crap because they know, even if it flops in the theater, they'll make up their losses in video sales. It's the "Why Bother" age of Hollywood.
In the past, when I had premium channels it seemed that I never seemed to catch the movies I wanted to see. I'd turn to HBO, and it would be the same crappy movie I didn't want to watch the last time I tried to watch! So, I dropped them. Having a DVR and HD versions of the channels has made premiums worth it for me. I scan the guide for movie's I wanted to see, and I usually am able to catch 6-12 films each month. Now it's hard to find time to watch everything I want to see. With so many movies on my DVR, who has time to order a PPV in addition?
