Default Best move channels/package on cable?

HBO, Starz, Showtime, Encore, Cinemax?

What package of channels should I order? Each one contains about 7 separate channels and costs $10 per month.

For movies only or for movies and some good TV shows? If you want movies and good TV shows then get HBO. But if you want channels just for movies then definitely get Starz/Encore. I had HBO up until the beginning of this year and I liked it for the shows but all of the good shows are done now. The only one I was watching was Real Time With Bill Maher. The movie selection on HBO sucks.

I got digital cable and went with Starz/Encore and I'm constantly watching movies on those channels. They offer a lot more/better movies than any other movie channel/package, IMO.

What are the better movies on Starz / Encore / HBO? A list of the best movies from these channels.

i would get a Showtime/HBO combo if you could.

while Starz and Encore will probably give you more channels and movies the tv shows on Showtime and HBO are badass and you get newer flicks with them. S/E tend to show a ton of stuff from the 80s up. HBO has boxing and Showtime will sometimes show MMA as well.

If you just NEED movies Cinemax will do you right.

I have all the movie channels and I watch HBO, Showtime, Cinemax much more than Starz and Encore.
