    Hi All,

    I don't know if this has been posted yet but apparently DTV is having a Showtime Ultimate free preview weekend from September 28th (Friday) to Oct 1 (Monday). Just saw the commercial during Ghost Hunters.

    Cool, thanks. I just checked the guide and the only thing I'm interested in recording is Mission: Impossible III, but that's ok it's free.

    Maybe they are doing this so that people will see that ShowTime now has:

    Showtime HD (71 or 537)
    SHO Too HD (538)
    Showtime HD West (540)

    This also gives a great opportunity to compare

    Showtime HD (71) MPEG2

    to

    Showtime HD West (540) MPEG4

    I have only done limited testing but it will be hard for DIRECTV to defend the MPEG2's as not being HD-lite. Especially now that we can compare the exact same feed in lite and regular.

    Actually, 537-549 as TMC, Flix & Sundance are part of Showtime.

    EXACTLY.

    It is actually a free Showtime preview for EVERY system, due to the Dexter season premiere.

    Sadly the Dexter premiere was the only decent thing on any of the Showtime networks all weekend.

    I've got to agree, Showtime is weak. I couldn't find anything worth Tivo-ing. I think Netflix is a much better investment.

    Well I just got suckered into subscribing. One free episode of Weeds was all it took.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the show usually features naked pornstars.

    Yep, Showtime free weekends are there just to remind me how much of a waste of $12 it would be to subscribe to it.

    I'm curious. What Netflix plan would you choose?
