Also, Encore is not positioned as blockbusters plus movies from the past few years as much as it is positioned as movies from the 70's forward minus anything new. In 2010-2013 it makes sense that we are in a position where new and recent movies get telecined to HD while older movies, with their ability to generate revenue comparatively diminished, have to wait in line. And that probably somewhat explains why the other channels in the Encore package are not HD at all.
So I do not find that Encore has fewer HD movies than HBO at all surprising.
