    Thanks for nothing again. I already get these channels. Since dropping the Rainbow channels my net gain still stands a -4.

    Not sure it's on purpose but I have noticed some of the movie content being put out on AXS (131) seems to be geared toward the guy jonesing for a AMC type movie. HDmovies also has its moments of quality movies and are without commercial interruption, so far in my AT250 package they have only added HDmovies and we lost three. I can never remember Sundance being in my package. I'm hoping HDmovies remains as a fixture in my at250 package but do also feel Dish should add another channel or advance a couple sd only channels to hd if possible.

    To be fair, this has nothing to do with AMC. It's fair to complain in that thread about the channels given in exchange for AMC dropping...

    But in this thread, we're purely talking about this month's free movie preview offering. It has nothing to do with AMC or any other channel dispute.

    And the fact of the matter is... for EVERY free preview Dish, DirecTV, or cable does... a lot of people are already paying for the channel in free preview... so they too get nothing "free" that month because they already subscribe.

    boo friggin' hoo! This wasn't set up for you. It was set up for the people who don't normally get the channels to check them out for a bit and maybe some will decide to subscribe to them.

    Dish doesn't carry a West feed of Encore in HD. They only carry the main Encore in HD.
