Hmm, my HBO-HD (70) is The Sopranos and its HD for me. If you are here to fire up another HD-Lite war, just go post it in the 100 other HD-Lite threads; if not, what do you mean your HBO-HD is the same as the SD?

charper1,

I think after re reading his post :

I think he is looking at DISH network, not D* ....
But I found it hard to understand also, I have HBO on ch 70 and looks like HD to

You actually pay for the measly 2 channels of Cinemax D* offers?

I still got it free. And yes, D* has the CRAPIEST premium Cinemax line-up EVER. 2 FRIGGIN Channels! I wouldn't pay 12 bucks ever for that nor would I pay the lowest possible price of 7 bucks!

For what it's worth, Cinemax on D* has 3 channels.
512-513-514
Max, MMax and MaxW

Years ago people use to pay $ 10-12 for Showtime or TMC Movie Channel and you only got 1 feed

yeah, because people are and were silly. And although is it is TECHNICALLY 3 channels, essentially it's only 2 because Max and MaxW are the same thing, just for different time zones. They air the same exact movies just at slightly different times, there is no point. Until D* gets the FULL Cinemax line-up (which seems will never happen) I will not be interested. Im sure it is their least popular package. Why doesn't D* have HBO/Cinemax as one package like many cable operators? They are both from Time-Warner, Cinemax is owned by HBO and they have their FREE weekend together. It makes no sense that they aren't together as one package like most cable providers offer.

I see what your saying, I never noticed that it was the same exact channel, although itmakes sense, and I do like the idea, if you miss the start of the 8pm mivie you can catch it a 9, Time shifting, too bad D* doesn't offer that for locals !!!

As you can probably tell, I don't watch movies very often.

Hell I'd pay $12/month for that Max pack. I didn't even know Cinemax had an HD. D* needs to get with the program!
