Sorry but any comparison of Superchannel and the Movie Network is just plain ludicrious. As many have said before it is strickly subjective....if you think grade D ready for DVD movies are the cats meow then so be it.

I have given SuperChannel 2 chances now. I cancelled both times. It stinks! Mainly direct-to-video B movies and Australian soap operas. I like HBO's programming and the movies are much better on Movie Central. I agree w/ 57. One service with access to all the studios is the way to go. It would seem that despite free preview periods, Canadians aren't impressed with the quality for the $ of SC.

Thumbs up Superchannel is a better choice

I had TMN and Mpix for years and superchannel certainly has more interesting programming. I recommend anyone to try it and judge for yourself.

It all comes down to personal preference. Both seem to be ok with me, but personally I would have to go with Super Channel. They have a wealth of tv series never before seen in Canada and if it wasn't for SC, many or most would never be seen here. I also like the fact that they give us something a little different in that not everything is the typical Hollywood faire. I agree with nfldanchor, it really is a breath of fresh air.

Thumbs up Thats why I like superchannel !!!!!

Thats what appeals to me about superchannel , a lot of programming I haven't seen before or haven't heard of. On Tmn and Mpix Ive seen most of their shows and the series they have aren't appealing at all. So if you haven't heard of something it doesn't necessarily mean thats a bad thing.

I just switched back from MC. I tired (again) of their programming, especially HBO Canada. It just isn't for me. I was going to cancel premium movie channels altogether, but decide to give SC another go. If yesterdays' programming is any indication, I may stay a while. I watched an episode of "Head Case" that actually has me in stitches. Its been a while since a comedy as done that so i hope other episodes are the same. Then I tuned into a Indian film with English sub-titles about an ancient emperor of Hindustan, Afghanistan, etc. It was a 3 hour epic. I didn't watch all of it, but the point is you wouldn't see this type of movie over at MC.

Thumbs up

There are two main reasons that I have Super Channel.

1. Sons Of Anarchy

2. Burn Notice

any other movie I happen to catch that I like is a bonus.

Midnight Meat Train
Babylon AD
Skins
Apparitions
plus many more

I watched a few episodes on Burn Notice and found it quite good. I enjoy TV more with this service.

Is Super Channel worth it?

Hi,

I have been frustrated by lack of HD content on Canadian HD channels. I unsubscribed my cable long time ago and went OTA instead. Anyways Ottawa area is a black hole for OTA.
I like to watch mostly movies and series only (not a sports or documentary fan here)

What my question is if I subscribe to Super Channel, would I get good HD content? I would love to see shows like House, Mental, In Plain Sight etc in in crystal clear HD.

Whether its worth or not is very subjective. I recommend going to their website and looking at their program schedule and deciding for yourself

So you dig up a 2 years old thread about a movie channel to ask if it carries current American network programming?

Actually I did not. I created a new one. Somebody with lot of time merged it here.

I still didn't get the answer if the HD channels actually broadcasting in HD 1080i?

Muddassir did not dig it up. It was merged to the wrong thread by accident. Now merged to the correct thread.

Muddassir, When did you ask that?

I recently added Superchannel as one of my premium services, and am actually happier with it than The Movie Network. The main reason is that they have a fairly large selection of horror and suspense movies (more than TMN), and I am a fan of those.
