alexanyways : AMC use to be good when it was a non-commercial uninterrupted network… What annoys me is how they put those BS TV ratings instead of the actual ratings for the movies given by the MPAA. I haven’t heard of Movieola but Turner Classic Movies is the best I feel simply because they air uninterrupted movies but they need to get rid of this TV Ratings nonsense IFC is guilty of the same problem.

Sony Movie Channel just launched so I am hoping that DirecTV will add it accordingly. HDNet Movies is also a great channel that gives the major movie networks a run for their money. I have seen a lot of movies from the 70s on that network. I wish there would be a retro channel showing movies from every decade but a healthy mix where it doesn’t seem so repetitive.

I would pick AMC, if only there wasn't commercials every 10 minutes.

I have to pick AMC by default because I've never seen Movieola and I don't think I can get it where I live. I do agree with you about the constant commercials though, that is annoying. I'm not really a big fan of AMC.

alexanyways : I guess it gives hardcore movie fans a valid excuse to buy the DVDs so that you’re guaranteed an uninterrupted film. The thing that Turner has over a lot of these upstart networks is that they have a catalog that they sell that is full of hard to find movies that have been released on DVD. I guess what did AMC in was when the network underwent a shift due to new ownership.


I think it is a lot like how things use to be with various independent stations across the country that were eventually brought and owned by a media company that owned several different networks under the same umbrella IE Viacom etc. As far as independent TV I grew up in New York, Connecticut and, Florida and up until there was all these independent channels under the WB or UPN banners there were a lot of great TV stations.


Being a New Yorker I have fond memories of watching WWOR-TV and WPIX-TV. Besides Mets and Yankees games both stations use to air a lot of great programming I remember WWOR use to have the “9 All-Night” movie. I go on YouTube often just to watch the old clips of the NY Stations. From what I know the only nostalgic thing that remains today are the Mets and Yankees games though even that is not what it use to be because both teams traded stations after decades being on the same stations.


Can someone please give me some information on Movieola? I’ve never heard of it and it sounds like a movie cell phone service to me. I am an old school guy so I am not familiar with this one and if it does have something to do with cell phones I would be out of luck because I do not own a cell phone.

AMC all the way, no idea what Movieola is but I did not get it on basic cable. AMC plays some awesome movies all the old classics use to watch it all the time when I had TV

JigSaw : I got curious and decided to look up Movieola on Wikipedia… It says it is a Canadian based short movie network which would explain why I have never heard of it. I kind of have high hopes for the new Sony Movie channel once DirecTV adds it. According to the network’s site it’s suppose to be as what HDNet Movies is a commercial free uncut movie network.

Considering all the movies that Sony already has access to and I am assuming they coul come to agreements with other studios this should make for some interesting competition for the networks. As long as it has a healthy mix and isn’t so repetitive I am all for it.

As far as Canadian based networks I would love to see a U.S. Version of The Fight Network. I cover boxing and thoroughly enjoy all combat sports so that would be right up my alley.

bvd1022 : That explains it I'm American

TV though is just way to expensive for all the indemand stuff I now rely on just internet for anything TV related, don't watch any shows anymore except Ghost Adventures

AMC did occasionally play boring stuff but for the most part they got a good selection of old movies from time to time and that is why I liked it.

JigSaw : The only thing that stops me from accessing DirecTV’s on Demand service is I need a cisco wireless adapter to hook in the back of my DVR. If I could afford the adapter I would get it because their on Demand service is free and they have tons of free movies that I would likely record to DVD.
