I think it's cool that you can now get movie channels without having to have a cable subscription or satellite TV. I always thought it would be a good idea to offer them separately. I might pick up a movie channel, even if I don't want the rest. The cable packatges just aren't a good value for me. There are too many channels that don't offer anything worth watching, but you don't get to pick your programming. No matter which package you get, there are some channels that we just won't watch. You can even try out some of the movie channels for free now. You can do the free trial, but be sure to cancel before the end date if you decide not to keep the service. If you do keep it, you can be billed monthly. HBO is like $15.00. Show Time, Cinemax, and Starz also have similar options. You should be able to find them all with Amazon. I like being able to try stuff out before I decide to make a purchase.
