As far as add-on movie channels, I love HBO - I'm addicted to True Blood. We recently had a free month of Cinemax and it didn't seem to have as great of movies as HBO - but maybe it was just a bad month.

What is your favorite add-on movie channel - HBO, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, more?

I'm not big on movies but I like to watch Bill Maher on HBO.
I notice though that all the good movies seem to be on the channels I don't get

I just had a landline installed by my cable company as part of a bundle to get HBO and watch True Blood. So, even though I discovered I like the On Demand feature and my kids watch the movies from the other premium networks, I have to still go with HBO. Its all about Bill and Sookie.

ABC Family, Hallmark channel, AMC, TMC and Turner Classic. I will watch HBO Family a bit, and rarely watch the other channels. Too many movies that I just do not like..

I get HBO, Encore, Showtime and TMC and it seems that the movies I want to watch are either on Encore, Starz or Cinemax. HBO has Bill Maher, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Real Sports and it HAD The Sopranos, Showtime has Dexter, Californication and some good Boxing matches.

I like Cinemax the most. They have a wide and more diverse selection of movies. Some rare, hard-to-find movies will show up there from time to time.

I also like Showtime for their shows, like Californication and Dexter. They also picked up Inside the NFL from HBO this year.
