*Encore Westerns was part of the Starz / Encore movie package until April 2000 when it was moved to the then-new AT150 (now AT250) package and Encore Movie Pack. Subscribers to Starz/Encore at the time were “grandfathered” and allowed to keep this channel in their package as long as they: 1) never dropped the Starz package or 2) never added America's Top 150/180/250 (Westerns would revert to the AT Package code)
Starz is also running an HDTV channel that is free to Starz Subscribers (requires an MPEG-4 HDTV Receiver, a Dish 1000 or separate dish, and an HDTV).
