Canada is behind in english HD channels compared to the US when you look at variety. A quick glance at the list of HD channels available on Dishnetwork in the US, and I found 7 HD PPV movie channels which rotate every day with different movies, and 6 high quality HD movie channels--Cinemax (3), HBO, Showtime and Starz. In Canada we have MC for the West and TMN for the East, and MC has 2 HD channels that run the same movies. In the West we don't even have access to Mpix like in the east. I don't count Superchannel because they have very few good movies right now. Maybe that will improve in the future. The 4 HD PPV channels on Bell usually carry the same movie on 2 channels for 3-4 days and 2-3 other movies on the other 2 channels over the same time period.
