    That has to be the most worthless movie premium or is it just me?

    Since it is part of Showtime, I do on occasion.

    To each their own.

    Looking at the list of upcommng movies on the channel, I just setup 6 recordings.

    It isn't one of our regular stops for movies, we usually find something earlier in the list, before getting that far.

    I always figured that since TMC is part of the Showtime "suite", that it was ok.

    What I always found was worthless was Cinemax.

    To be fair, I only regularly watch 3 or 4 of all the movie channels in the Premium pack. I cannot single out one particular channel when I don't watch 27 more movie channels either. They don't offer ala carte at a reasonable rate, so we get all or nothing. Same thing with the phone company. To get 3 services, it is cheaper to get all of them. Even though I will never use most of them.

    Cinemax should be part of the HBO package like TMC is part of Showtimes. MAX gets interesting on Saturday nights:)

    I honestly don't even look at the channels.. if there's a movie on in the guide, I just check to see if it's in HD. Ha, man, I'm spoiled with the HD.

    I seem to record then watch all the premium movie channels from time to time. (yes, even the Encore channels in SD--but only if its a movie I really want to watch.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I notice in Access Direct TV Magazine, they list movies on Encore as being in HD. I wonder if & when this will happen.

    I seldom know the source of a recorded movie.

    I'm sure some of them must come from the Movie Channel.

    As far as "most useless," well, one of them has to be the "most useless," right?

    He's commenting on the fact that the DirecTV magazine lists HD movies on Encore, when so far DirecTV only offers the SD version.

    The only two shows they've had recently that are of any value to me are Dexter and Penn & Teller.
