I was hoping that since the company that owns Starz now owns D* that Starz and Encore would get shuffled into their base package or atleast maybe 1 Starz and 1 Encore channel as a marketing tool that E* and cable couldn't do like exclusive NFLST......:)
My equipment:
1 HR22-100 leased
1 HR22-100 owned
1 HR23-700 owned
1 R22-100 owned
1 R22-200 owned

Next year is a LONG way away...
But it is not that much of a stretch to think that Starz HD will be avialble by then.

Can we get an official thread for these? So I could subscribe and get notified. I'm lucky I just happened to check.
