According to channel 103 it looks like we get the Encore package and Indieplex as a free preview this month:

It lists channel 340 there, which is actually Encore East and part of the Starz package but the only Encore channel in HD so hopefully we get Encore E in HD. Could be a mistake though or we might only be getting the SD version of Encore E in free preview.

Land where we pronounce our "R" as "ah"
I'm going to be an ass. "I already get Encore East in HD as part of AT250 and free HD for life. Cool to get it in SD as I don't subscribe to Starz." On the serious side, SD viewers will appreciate this as since they don't get HD. They only get the main Encore's west coast feed.

Why does Dish advertise channels 340 and 347 as part of the Encore Movie Pack when they are not (unless they plan to do so as that would be nice)? Maybe Dish could add the HD feeds for those that are in HD.

And if I already have Encore :confused:
I just added it :rolleyes:
Same here. Went up to 250 for Euro 2012, Le Tour, and the Olympics. So now I want someone's scalp at Dish. I demand vengeance and the righting of this intolerable wrong. :D

It looks like the Encore channels are up.

And Encore East is in HD. :)
I hope that Dish adds 340 and 347 permanently to the Encore Movie Pack as I was getting only 341-346 and 377 with the Encore Movie Pack. It would be nice to get Encore (East) in the Encore Movie Pack.

It is an added plus that Dish does seem to put many basic channels in free preview to give folks a taste of what they may be missing.....or not missing :)
