Didn't think the plex channels were premium.

Probably because Dish Network offered them in their version of the HD Extra package...

DirecTV could offer them bundled with the Starz package, Choice Ultimate, or they could offer them in the HD Extra package, or I guess whatever the heck DirecTV and Starz manages to come to an agreement for...

Only Indieplex and Retroplex are available in HD. Movieplex isn't HD yet to my knowledge...

I wonder if this means we'll get the remaining Encore channels or IndiePlex and RetroPlex in HD.

I believe they are offered at the medium package on fios, but only in sd.

True. But those two would be fine.

I'm guessing they'll be on both Starz Super Pack and Choice Ultimate like Encore is.

Until last year, movie plex was actually a taste of encore to try to entice people to get encore. It is now its own channel.

Actually, it would have been a useful post if he told us something about how Dish packages the channels.
Unless it has changed it is part of the Platinum HD package, which I think is now called Blockbuster @Home. It is similar to DirecTV's HD Extra pacakge, it is an extra $10 per month.

If they added the Plex channels to the HD Extra Pack it would make it a much more interesting package.
