Hey all, I am looking into getting Directv soon and I can choose from Encore or Starz for free. I like to watch most types of movies, especially action movies. Which one would you recommend? Thanks all!

I had Encore for a while with my digital cable, and it sucked. SO I'd say Starz, which I've also had, but it is a bit better. Both are going to show the same movie about 5 or 6 times a week though, so be prepared to say "MAN, this is on AGAIN?!?!" lol

Good thing I never watch TV like...ever. That way I can never say "omg rerun?" hahaha.<br><br>
Deal or No deal, 1vs100, and One Tree Hill...are the only shows I watch...<br><br>
OH, and RushHD. that channel is amazing. Playing "p-i-g" on skateboards and bmx bikes is awesome.

Whenever I get Demos on our Dish system, I always enjoy showtime. go for that instead! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"> Showtime is THE ultimate setup!
