I've watched TMC a couple of times. at least one of them is in HD. they even got porn on their on demand channel :)

the most worthless premium is Encore. not in HD? not worth my time.

Comcast doesn't even count the Encore's as premiums, theyre free to Digital Preferred customers WITHOUT getting Starz.

TMC used to be great when they had Joe Bob Briggs doing his Drive-In Movie reviews back in the 80's. And I thought Cinemax was part of the HBO package? Shows you how long it's been since I've had any kind of premium movie package. Between Network TV and the free channels, plus our DVD collection, we don't lack for entertaining stuff to watch without paying even more than we do now.

on DirecTV HBO and Cinemax are 2 separate packages. i dont know why, they should be together since they only got 3 max's. 7 bucks for 3 channels is pretty high.

I used to watch TMC years ago when it had Joe Bob Briggs Saturday nights -- haven't subscribed to it in years though.
