Alien trilogy On Superchannel Nov 15th In HD

I was just looking at the upcoming schedule for Superchannel HD and found that they will be airing the Alien trilogy starting at 12:00 central time all the way to 22:00 CST. This should be awesome for all those who are fans of the Alien movies. They will be on:

Shaw: ch 228
Star Choice: ch 270
Bell: ch 843
Rogers: ch 373
Access: ch 524
Mountain cable: ch 680
MTS TV: ch 511 (Not In HD)
Source cable: ch 803
East Link: ch 685
Novus: ch 143
SaskTel: ch 510

Keep in mind that these channel line-ups are for major cities only.
yaaaaaaa Aliens in HD.

And the new Alien vs. Predator is showing as well. Not the last one though (which I missed unfortunately )

Predator and Predator 2 are on the same day, just before the Alien movies begin! Why doesn't Superchannel show more of this type of movie on a regular basis?

I think the channels are just coming into their own. I suspect there was a lot of exclusive contracts that TMN/MC had that SuperChannel had to make a move towards competing with or removing the exclusivity. Things seem better every month. And looking at the website December is the best so far.

I was very disappointed in the fact that they did not air the special edition for Aliens and Alien 3. They should have had those ones and not the original chopped down ones. Oh well I'm just happy that i got to see them in HD.

I thought they looked pretty bad, lots of mpeg blocking during fast motion indicating a low bitrate.
