When will Encore be included in our basic package. I mean like lets say choice extra.
Comcast has it in their Preferred package. Dish network has it in their top 250. I hope when Liberty gets in if ever they could do this for us.I think many would like it.

If I had to guess... never.

What you have to realize is that just because the majority stock ownership is changing does not mean that the management is, and certainly doesn't mean that the contracts are.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

Probably the same day that Cinemax is part of the HBO package, in other words, never.

As long as someone would shell out $12.00/ month for it they will gladly take it. And if they raised the cost of extra $12.00 and "threw it in" you'd scream...

As long as people keep paying for it, it will never be part of the general packages.
