    I'm a Premier sup with HD Extra Pack, MLB Extra Innings, and NFL Sunday Ticket. Reasons should be obvious. Movies, sports, and original programming.

    I currently have HBO,Cinemax,Starz,Showtime,Encore, and HD Extra pack since it was apart of my new customer sign up package free for 3 months.

    When my 3 months are up I will only keep HBO & Showtime.I like both because of the series they have.HBO for Boardwalk Empire, Game Of Thrones.Showtime for Dexter and Californication.

    Also I like HBO & Showtime for the boxing coverage they show & cover throughout the year.Also HBO sports documentaries are usually great.Showtime's Inside the NFL is great also.Heck I remember back in the 90's when that show was on HBO.

    Starz would be nice but the only thing I really like on there is Magic City.That alone does not justify me subscribing to that channel pack.

    HD extra pack IMHO is pretty horrible and not worth paying for.A lot of the programming they show aren't even in HD.Only way I'll keep this if I can get around it by doing the loop hole trick to remove & add the 3 free months trial on Directv's website.

    HBO & Showtime: Original programming
    Cinemax: It's included in Premier, otherwise I wouldn't get it.

    HBO, mostly for their original series. Newsroom is pretty great, seems as if they have a left wing slant.

    NO ! It's way too expensive for my budget also.I will subscribe to HBO again when Boardwalk Empire season 3 starts in the Fall.I will also most likely pick up the Sports pack again too when & if the NHL season starts.I like their pre-game shows.
