I see we now have channel 199 AMC. There's no channel name under the number and the grid says "to be announced" but I just turned it on and there it is.

Neat, thanks for the heads up :) I see the same. It's too bad it seems a bit over-compressed, much like the NFL Network is....gosh, I wish Eastlink would improve that!

Yeah, I just noticed it today. Wonder how long we've had it, and which channel it replaces. Nice surprise. Is this rolled out nationally, I wonder?

I noticed it on Fri. I don't think it replaces any channel....it's new to Eastlink. I know other providers have been carrying it for awhile.

It was launched on Friday. Looks like they had/have some issues with the iguide portion (havn't checked to see if its resolved today).

This channel really needs a PVR to watch any movie... they turn a 2 hour movie into 3 hours with the excessive commercial count.

I do highly recommend Mad Men... and hope the HD version is not far behind.

From the sounds of the Twitter feed, only Sudbury and Halifax have it right now. I had received confirmation that Timmins was getting it on 196 also. I was shocked that we would get something at the same time as Sudbury...hasn't happened since 2001.

But...still not DCT or DVR "tunable" up here. The reason I say it that way is because my PC's TV tuner can see it in clear QAM since Friday evening.;)

Just noticed it last night and watched Grease.

I wonder how long we will have access to it?
Ummmm, it's permanent. Well as permanent as any other channel is.
I'm sorry. I meant that I hadn't seen any info on a free preview and also assumed that it would be added to a package, most likely the Movies Plus package given it's channel location and genre of programming, which I may not not subscribe to.

It's a waste watching movies on this channel. With all the commercials that run and all the edits for content they make it makes movies on this channel unwatchable unless it's a movie that doesn't need any editing like a kids movie otherwise it's a waste. it's just another TBS style superstation but with way more commercials.

My bad, mis-understood your comment.
