DISH Network Adds Movie Channel With Starz ProgrammingFor whatever reason during the holidays, movie watching is a common tradition throughout households across America, possibly because it's just too darn cold to step outside during these upcoming blistering months of winter. There's something cozy I guess you could say about starting a fire, drinking eggnog (or my favorite, lattes) with your favorite flicks on TV. Luckily, for DISH Network subscribers, we get to enjoy the latest movie programming additions with Starz Entertainment's MoviePlex, where all-time classic films from rom-coms to drams will be available at DISHOnline and on the Starz Entertainment channels. Some of the shows that you can look forward to on Starz Entertainment's MoviePlex channels include: "Happy Gilmore," "Sleepless in Seattle," "The Sixth Sense," and "Groundhog Day." Hundreds of other movies, newer releases as well as classic films will also be available on DISH Network. The addition of MoviePlex will also give DISH Network viewers the ability to download the DISH Remote Access App on their iPad, iPhone, Android Phone, PC's and laptops and watch the movies from Moviplex with DISH's 'TV Everywhere' feature. In a recent press release, the Senior Vice President of Programming for DISH Network, Dave Shull announced: "DISH Network customers have responded extremely well to our recent launch of movie channels like Starz's IndiePlex and RetroPlex, so we're proud to expand our relationship with Starz by introducing MoviePlex." Shull continued with: "The addition of MoviePlex, Starz and Encore content to our on demand and selections will give our customers even more ways to enjoy their favorite TV shows and movies."
