Depends what you want.

Starz has about 900 unique movies a month over 15 channels....8 in HD. Some original series as well. Also has VOD content.

HBO has 8 channels, 4 in HD Slightly higher price. Definitely known for original content but still has movies, too. Tends to have a slightly more left of center ideology (Bill Maher, etc).

Cinemax has 3 channels, 2 in HD. Owned by HBO.

Showtime has 13 channels, 10 in HD. Mix of movies and original programming. Also has VOD content.

What many people don't realize is that the studios have exclusive deals with these Premium networks. As a result, a movie that is on HBO will not appear on Starz or Showtime.



Starz also owns IndiePLEXHD, RetroPLEXHD with films from 1924 to the 90's.
