The SD feeds of Encore Mystery and Starz Cinema have been added to the HD Platinum package. Not sure why SD channels are being added to an HD package but it's better than nothing I guess.

Odd ... I know they just started testing MoviePlex in SD on channel 377 ...

Perhaps with the lines between HD and SD blurring adding a couple of premium channels to Platinum HD adds value.

BTW: DISH added six new HD only channels to Platinum HD this year ... so they were doing better than nothing before adding any SD channels.

I already had encore mystery as part of my 250 package, don't watch a lot of SD unless there is absolutely nothing on in HD. Hopefully starz cinema will at least provide another option when there is not much to watch.

i can get the encore channel as part of my 250 package but the 353 says its a subscription channel and wants me to upgrade. im on the eastern arc if that makes any difference as to why i cant see it. maybe??

Hopefully MoviePlex will turn into MoviePlex HD at some point in time.

377 remains in testing and is not available to customers. I'd be worried if you could see it. :)

i found out why i cant get starz cinema on 353. this morning i contacted dish on the phone. im currently in the middle of getting platinum free for 3 months for signing up for paperless billing. according to the rep i cannot get any additional platinum channels added to the lineup while in the free offer. that might be true, my friends that pay for platinum get 353. but still, should they limit my account just because im in a free offer? it was just annoying me to death as to why everyone else could get it and i couldnt :)

I don't see those channels yet. Do I need to unlock them?
