Anyone have SUNDANCE CHANNEL?

I dont have it since I havent subscribed/upgraded to Digital cable but I was wondering if anyone gets this channel and if Sundance show their movies unedited, unlike Bravo?

I used to get Sundance at school, I never watched it much because of really bad reception (and I didn't find most of their content all that good, just MO though) but I do remember them showing some graphic stuff (why else would I stop channel surfing???) and foul language.

From the Sundance Channel Website:

Sundance Channel brings television viewers daring and engaging feature films, shorts, documentaries, world cinema and animation, shown uncut and with no commercials.

I have Sundance through my satellite dish but I rarely get to watch it.

I have it, and it's usually really good, but for some reason, they don't show all their films in widescreen. Same goes for IFC. I was disappointed when they were showing something I really wanted to see but it was shown fullscreen.
Other than that, it's really good.

I used to get the PanandScandance Channel, but this is why I canceled it.

The weird thing is that Sundance's own Robert Redford can be seen touting the benefits of widescreen broadcasts on a TCM featurette.

I have Sundance but rarely watch it anymore. It was at a point where 95% of the movies were P&S, and the movies eventually made their way over to one of the Showtime/Movie Channel sister stations. Where as with IFC, I can't think of the last time I saw a movie that wasn't in OAR, or was shown on another station a month or 2 later. The only advantage I see Sundance having over IFC is a bigger library.

Since when does Bravo show their movies unedited?

Atleast in Canada it does. For the past couple of years.

Bravo always edits their movies. Giles, the original poster, said "unedited, unlike Bravo" and that means that Bravo is not edited.
