The Starz Super Pak now offers the East and West Coast feeds of Encore and STARZ! Theater, in addition to both feeds of STARZ!, as part of its broader Dolby Digital 5.1 lineup.

A selection of the hit movie titles to be offered with Dolby Digital 5.1 in March 2002 include, "Bridget Jones's Diary," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "Unbreakable," "Chocolat," "Blow," "Crouching Tiger," "Hidden Dragon," "Thirteen Days" and "Disney's The Kid."

Dolby Laboratories reports that more than 10 million U.S. households have a set-top box capable of playing Dolby Digital 5.1 via DBS and/or digital cable. Dolby also estimates that more than 9 million U.S. households are equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1 home receivers.

Other networks currently broadcasting in Dolby Digital 5.1 include ABC, DirecTV, DISH Network, HBO, NBC, PBS and Showtime. For a listing of programs broadcast in Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, visit www.dolby.com/tvaudio. For more information about Starz Encore programming, visit www.starzencore.com.
