All but one of the channels in my guide for Starz Encore are standard definition!!??? Who wants to watch that? Some “preview”. I’ll keep my money....

That's the way that package is structured. It's not a restriction based on this preview.

...especially since that one HD channel would not be included if you actually subscribed to the stand-alone Encore package. (Starz Encore East HD is only included in the Starz package, not the Starz Encore package.)

Site say Starz Encore till the 26th, HDNet Movies to 3/4. Have not checked yet.

If you like your movies in SD, the Encore Free Preview is up and running on my guide.

SD, in 2018, bwaaahaha. Get serious.

Agree but... Can you get Starz stuff on demand when it's in free preview? I've found , even in SD, pretty decent and much better than the satellite delivered channel.

In my guide, none of the free preview Starz Encore channels are in HD.

Why in heck not? No broadband?
The interface is intensely slow, to the point of almost being nonfunctional. Once you have "rented" something and it downloads, the watch button is greyed out. If you try watch now it never plays. So unless dish is deliberately sabotaging me, it doesn't work on any 722.

It used to work fine on my 722 and also on my 612's. Caveat: I haven't tried it recently.

It was listed in the guide on the Dish Studio channel. They had a block promoting both the Epix and Showtime previews this weekend.
