    ...already have 15 movies set to record. Looks like Starz finally got the point of not showing movies that have been out on DVD for ten years for the freeviews. We'll see what I actually watch. Who knew Scary Movie 3 was so funny!

    Lots of oooold stuf though. Better than HBO this weekend at least.

    Not what I was told two weeks ago when they gave me discounted HBO and a separate monthly credit (and there were no equipment changes)...

    Has Starz stopped putting their annoying logo on during programming? That prompted me to cancel my Starz package a few months ago.

    It's certainly less annoying than the logos on some other channels -- but, yeah, it's there occasionally on regular Starz, more often on other channels (such as Starz Edge and WAM), along with the text info banners at the bottom of the screen during movies' closing credits.

    Just got my showtime/starz package for $2 a month also. Also just got my bill in the mail and see where my prices are going up. 5.99 for tivo, and my package went from 45.99 to 48.99.
