Re: [HD] Cinemax coming to Ultimate Package

Not sure of the credit amount. It will start once your VHO gets the new package codes - in the next few weeks.

From what i could tell. It was something like hbo + cinemax was 26 bucks. Will now become like 17 for just hbo... So 8 buck discount? Fuzzy math but should be within the ballpark

Boy do i always have the worse timing!!, One reason i left directv was because i couldnt get the east coast networks NBC,ABC FOX,and CBS in HD here in so cal. even though i could get the east coast SD versions of those channels. A month after i left directv added the HD version of the networks!, now last month i switched to extreme pack from ultimate pack with verizon because they only had showtime and TMC in the utimate pack,so what happens now they add cine max to ultimate ,guess i'll switch back to ultimate! AARGH!

You can add any premium channel to any package a la carte. No need to order a specific package.

This is a good incentive to finally upgrade.....Plus isn't SHO already included with Ultimate too?

I have SHO/TMC/Stars/Encore movies pack for $16/mo with the old 2009 Extreme (I think that's what is was called, it's been so long) before there even was an Ultimate.

But I can just cancel that pack, and if Ultimate includes SHO and MAX then that is plenty.

Yep, Sho/TMC/Starz/Encore already included in Ultimate, as is EPIX. Essentially HBO will be the only premium movie channels not included.

You guys all realize that this is really just Verizon finally putting a package together that Comcast has offered for a long time. (Except for their love children in NYC that have had this forever).

Their top package includes ALL premiums - you don't have to add anything like we currently have to with HBO/Cinemax or Starz.

It is nice they are doing that for all VHOs, as Cox here doesn't have a package that includes everything.

Starz and Encore are NOT included in Ultimate (at least I don't get them in VHO8)

Hmm, actually, now that you mention it I think maybe I do pay for Starz/Encore and then I am getting a credit back on my bill for them.

My idea would have Epix as part of Prime,Epix,Showtime/TMC and Encore as part of Extreme withj the entire shooting match (HBO/Cinemax/Starz) as part of Ultimate

A couple years ago showtime and encore were included with extremehd. It was only the last year or two that it was removed. I doubt they will backtrack as it would be a money loser for them.

But if they're trying to put together a package with all premiums to compete with Comcast's Digital Premier package, then why did they still leave out HBO and Starz/Encore? (NY excluded obviously)

I'm in NJ (VHO 7). I just negotiated a new deal that got me the Ultimate package for the same price as my old Extreme package. I get all the premium channels (Starz/Encore, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime) as part of the package.



joeyj

@verizon.net

Yep parts of NJ get it due to competition from cablevision.

I hate the premium channels for movies though cause other than showtime hardly any of them ever do OAR.

get the premium channels for HBO shows such as Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood etc which are better then most movies

Showtime's Homeland and Starz' Spartacus is also good but no in the same class as HBO's original programming

In AA County, MD Cinemax is included in the Ultimate HD package. We signed up for it on Nov. 2 using the online method.
