Starz-HD is going into its second month. Here is a list of movies that will be shown in HD. The ones in SD may be shown in HD or SD. I do not know yet.

Starz-HD now has their HD schedule up on their website. http://www.starz.com/se/starz/hdtv.html. I looked at that schedule and saw a lot of repeats. Of couse, I was keeping my own list and I compared both and we are only getting 25 movies in HD. Take a look at HBO and Cinemax and tell me if this is not a disgrace!!!

hey sean, the movie was obviously not OAR, and it really showed, at the beginning when they were showing the credits for the movie and some of the names were cut off at the sides. That sucks plus the pq wasnt that great!

I just read at AVS that Serendipity was shown in HD on Starz-HD 261. It will be played again on channel 262 (Starz-HD West). I will check to see if it is HD as it was not part of the original list of HD movies that Starz has on their website.

I sent an angry letter to Starz last week. This was after a few e-mails and calls. Basically, I told them what we have seen - very little HD content. This is their response:

Sean:
As STARZ! HD is a brand new service offered by Starz we are just beginning to develop our HD library. In order to do so we are developing new contracts with the many movie studios we work with to receive the films in both versions. As with any new service on any cable or network channel, this is a process that takes some time, but with every day that goes by our library is growing immensely. As this is a new service we ask for your patience and understanding as we acquire the #1 Big Hit Movies you love in the aspect ratio you want to watch them in.

With Regards,
Customer Relations

Well, it is only getting worse for the month of March on Starz-HD. Look at the lack of HD movies (18 ONLY). The positive side: most of them are new.

I remember watching Blue Crush on StarzHd and it was not hi-def(suprise, suprise), but today i was flipping through channels, and i came up on it again and to my surprise it was in hi-def, even though its not listed on the Starz website as one of their hi-def movies.Maybe starz is trying to fix their act?

Another one playing in Starz-HD West Country Bear is in HD. It looks like they are finally getting these titles in HD.

I bet the Twin towers will look awesome:) you guys are giving the rest of us V* envy.

Both LOR were awesome! I was really down on Starz-HD for the lack of HD movies but it looks like they are making a good effort in transferring their movies to HD. If you see a movie in HD and it is not listed in the above list, let me know so that I can add it to the list. Also, state whether it was shown OAR if it was. Thanks.
