    Sweet! I don't mind paying a few extra bucks every year as long as they keep improving their service. I was with Cox cable for 5 years, and the only channel they added during that time was MLB Network (and even that was a year after it launched) and I've only been with DirecTV for 3 months, and already they've added TruTV HD and now This! Purdy Cool :D

    Well, it seems some wondered if these channels would be in HD, a Dish customer confirms all Plex channels but one are in HD so thank you Paul Secic for that confirmation.

    Uh. That information is on the movie plex webpage. The one I went to look at as soon as I saw the first post.

    Paul did confirm that dish has them. Although the way he posted it sounded like there were a whole bunch. I thought that was humorous.

    Nice to see a positive post here. There are enough naysayers on forums like this so it's refreshing to see your post. Thanks.

    I would place them between chs. 532 to 534, to connect between Starz (chs. 525 to 531) and Encore (chs. 535 to 542). If DirecTV were to end up deciding to add Epix, two of its three could be placed on chs. 543 and 544, to segue into the Showtimes. (One slot would have to open for Epix Drive-In. I, quite frankly, would like to see a channel restructuring due to expansion of regional sports mathematically taking more individual channel slots.)

    Guessing:
    532 MoviePlex
    533 IndiePlex HD
    534 RetroPlex HD

    When they restructured the sports channels a little while back, it took months and months.

    Interesting, I'm wondering how this will effect the Choice Ultimate package.

    I'm also very happy that there was a successful contract negotiation WITHOUT taking the channels offline. Then again, since Starz is owned by Liberty Media Corporation I'm not surprised it went off without a hitch.

    Can we get :backtotop please? I don't see what E*'s channels and packages have to do with D* adding more Starz owned channels.

    I know [a] launch date wasn't announced [on April 16] for Starz expansion of MoviePlex, IndiePlex, and RetroPlex … but would it be okay to figure they'll get added to the lineup of DirecTV within 90 days?
