I've been googling around to find a list of Movie Premieres scheduled for 2012 on premium channels (aka what movies will be on HBO, Starz, Showtime etc..). Anyone have a link for that information?

I know I can look to see what contracts each premium channel has with the Movie Studios but that process is not short and sweet.

thanks

That's simple:

Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate : Epix

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures[40] (including Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, and Hollywood Pictures), Sony Pictures Entertainment (including Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics, Screen Gems, TriStar Pictures), Overture Films (also owned by Starz' parent, Liberty Media), Anchor Bay Entertainment, Yari Film Group, and Warren Miller Films, among other leading distributors.: Starz

DreamWorks Animation (which last until 2013, at which time the Netflix streaming service will assume pay-TV rights),[53] 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios, Focus Features, and network sister companies Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema.: HBO

Showtime has basically the crumbs,including Summit Entertainment, The Weinstein Company, Miramax Films (also including rights to Dimension Films releases), DreamWorks Pictures (live-action releases through Touchstone Pictures only), CBS Films, First Look Pictures, IFC Films (rights are shared with Starz), THINKFilm and Anchor Bay Entertainment

Showtime also has Lightning Media and Phase 4 (genre pics, usually), Tribeca, Magnet and Magnolia (after their one-day previews on HDNet Movies.)

I appreciate that info but I did that already using wiki. I really was looking for a defacto list for each network but instead just made my own ...

uncertainty,

I have once brought this subject up in the HoTP thread.

I'm sure you can go on their website and look at the month's movie premiers.
I enjoy the weekend movie premiers myself, and would greatly benefit from a list of all the weekend movie premiers.

i.e. Movies for HBO every Saturday:

4/21
4/28
5/05
5/15
5/19
5/25
etc. etc.

There's something I didn't know. I never check EPIX, but will now that I know they have MGM and LIONSGATE. Thanks for the info.

Aside from checking HBO on saturday nights I don't know of a resource that will list the specific movie title and date.

If the networks wanted you to know that information far in advance, they would make it easy to find. I think they purposely don't give you more than about a month's notice so that you'll give up and purchase the movie.

Showtime in a way has adapted decently to the loss of movies to EPIX.
I noticed a lot of more curious lil movies that dont make it to the theaters or your neighborhood Bluray store(if any left). This is important as IFC has become crap and Sundance's programming has become drier and they still haven't moved to HD. Hopefully, they will keep adapting or they will start losing business. Showtime has a chance to become the premier indie pay channel, especially with Sundance no longer being part of their channel group. Dexter is on its last legs.

Having COMCRAP, I don't get EPIX. I subscribe to every other premium network but TMC.

HBO sucks for movies. Starz is like EPIX where they have a big selection of mainstream movies. Cinemax is down to ONE HD channel on COMCAST. Whatever movies show up on the main channel are either reruns of what is already on HBO or will be shown on HBO at a later date anyway. And whatever movies they may show on their many other channels do not interest me because of lack of HD. So it has become a useless channel. Their ON Demand library sucks too and is only noteworthy for their soft porn collection.

Showtime seems the best for cheap horror flicks. Some indies also crop up.


HBO Signature does show decent South American movies from time to time. I have probably watched more spanish movies than English movies on HBO.
