Besides the ones mentioned above, you can have added channels such as HBO 2 and several other HBO channels. You may be able to purchase several Cinemax channels as well as several Showtime, Starz and Encore movie packs. These, of course, will come at an additional price, usually ranging between $7 and $12 or more per package. As with the analog cable, you may be able to purchase all Digital Cable Premium channels in a set price package. Try contacting your cable company for prices and more information!
