You have to subscribe to AT 250 and STARZ to get WAM!Conway said:I ordered this in anticipation of the aug 1st enc hd release. I noticed it doesn't have the wham channel or enc E.. Is this correct?... Not really can be called the encore pack can it?
STARZ is owned by Liberty Media and have contracts mainly with Sony Columbia, Disney and others. ENCORE airs movies from the 80's up to today. It's a great service. I'm looking forward to ENCORE EAST in HD.Michael P said:Speaking of Starz/Encore, I watched the free preview of Stars a few weeks ago, every movie I watched was distributed by Disney. Does Disney own Starz or does Starz have an exclusive on Buena Vista distributed films?
You have to ask for the ENCORE PAK by E-mail if you don't have AT 250.phrelin said:Way back when the Starz/Encore deal was consumated with Dish, the "Encore Movie Pak" consisted of the west feed of Encore, Love Stories, Mystery, Action, True Stories, and WAM! America's Kidz Network. This was to be included in the then Top 150 which is now the 250. The "Starz Encore Super Pak" consisted of STARZ! (east and west), Encore (east), STARZ! Theater, Westerns, BET Movies/STARZ!, STARZ! Family, and STARZ! Cinema (east and west).
The Starz package now includes Starz InBlack, Starz Cinema (East), Encore (East to be in HD), Starz Comedy (to be in HD), Starz (East, also in HD), Starz Kids & Family (to be in HD), Starz (West to be in HD), and Starz Edge (to be in HD).
The Encore package that's included with the Top 250 includes Encore (West), Encore Action, Encore Drama, Encore Love, Encore Mysteries, Encore WAM, and
Encore Westerns. None of these are scheduled to be HD in August. I did not know these were available as a package other than part of the Top 250.
Thanks, didn't know that.Paul Secic said:You have to ask for the ENCORE PAK by E-mail if you don't have AT 250.
AT 250 is my favorite package because as you said it two channels of the Movie Channel in SD.. By next year they should be in HD.phrelin said:Thanks, didn't know that.
For me, if I really want them I might as well pay the extra $5.01 and go to the AT250. I'd pick up a bunch of stuff my 5-year-old granddaughter wants to watch when she's here, plus Bloomberg, Biography, the Fox Movie Channel, the Hallmark Movie Channel, the National Geographic Channel, VH-1 Classic, etc. I don't miss any of these nor the Encore Pak.
