Yeah, the superfan is enabled the first week as well, so you'll get the games in HD. At least it was that way last year.

Note: one of those movies are on T101 (dont mess with zonhan) bc they broadcast that same movie AFTER the free preview as of Sept 27th, 2009. That would be a movie that isnt broadcasting free til after the free preview is over on monday.

to find out if it broadcast today to monday, you can search the title and it will tell you when it will be on. not to mention a few movies like spiderman 3 is broadcasting as well that ISNT on the list.

that list is not showing all available shows or is listing shows that are gonna be broadcasting next weekend that isnt on this free preview weekend.

Sept 17-20, 2009.

The free premium channel previews only accomplish one thing, reinforcing my reasoning for not subbing to premium channels.

Or it could be that the movies suck or have already been shown on other channels.

what about original shows? no way you could have seen them anywhere else...

HBO was nominated for 99 Emmy's this year. how many was NFL Sunday Ticket nominated for?

Hmmm....
I bet NFL ST was not nominated for ANY Emmy's, but I bet the get nominated for plenty of awards in thier field.

As far as I know, they do not show MOVIES on the ST ....

Don't know where your going with this one Tomcat.

I'm just saying I LIKE watching unedited commercial free movies in HD. Anyone that would rather pay 10 bucks a hit to watch them in a theater or on PPV is obviously mentally ill.

And HBO, Showtime, etc don't just show movies. They also show original shows (which are often nominated for Emmys like I said above) and occasionally sports and special events. Labeling them "movie channels" is technically a misnomer. HBO and Showtime have the best shows on TV IMO, they're worth every penny.

I doubt anyone here has seen every single movie on every single Starz and Encore channel that will air this weekend either...

Yes The Movie Channel too but that already is part of the Showtime package i mentioned that was ok.

Im talkin the premium movie channels like HBO, Starz, Cinemax, Encore....not TCM/MGM/FMC.
