Yes, this is their highest package, normally $99.99 / month.

Looks like it is all of their English language stations, except for things like Spice... (sorry) Spike is on the list. It's just one letter away from Spice.

Edit: This is somewhat interesting, when I view the page talking about the free preview in English it says Total Choice Premiere (the link above). When I view the page in Spanish it says I get Selección Premier:

Slightly different programming. Includes the Spanish stations and movie channels, but apparently not all of the English language stations. And no Spice.

BUMP for this weekend...I'll definitely be recording "War of the Worlds." I get HBO and Showtime free anyways, so Cinemax (a lot of same stuff as HBO, I think?) and Starz are the only interest for me. I also sometimes like recording things on DIY.

I'm watching "The Village" right now, maybe it's better the second time around. After that I figure I'll check out some of the nightly movies on Cinemax.

Batman Begins is on HBO tomorrow night.

War of the Worlds and Sin City are on Starz, I haven't seen either of those so I'll Tivo them.

There's a Baghdad hospital documentary on HBO Sunday night, supposed to be pretty interesting.
