Quite a few providers offer HMC in HD. In my area, Comcast and DISH Network offer it while Charter and DIRECTV do not.

Dont feel bad. One time a search engine devoted to market news found a two year old article, posted it as new, and cut the stock price of the company the article referred to in half during that days trading.

Remember, whatever mistake you make, someone else has already made it, and made it more spectacularly.

I am amazed that they let the movies they have interfer with the commercials! I mean talk about a channel with commercial overload. I tried to watch something live but they came in every 8 minutes with a commercial break.
Big zero from me.

This is definitely a channel you need a dvr because of all those commercial breaks.

They also need to fix the low sound volume . But I have found a lot of movies to watch on this channel

Many of the movies shown had theatrical releases and were not made for television.

Also, let's not forget all those 1080i channels you pay for with reduced resolution and that every channel you subscribe to comes via that lovely Dish Network compression scheme resulting in macroblocking, among other issues. In short, we are just fine over here. It would be best if you chose to mind your own business and continued to enjoy your second rate service via Dish Network. I hope that poor image quality doesn't cause permanent damage to your eyesight. Perhaps you and others can join in a class action lawsuit. I am sure they will fight that just has hard as their blatant patent infringement with TiVo. How long until you lose the use of that DVR?
