DISH Network Adds Starz MoviePlex

The HD Platinum package just got a little bit better.

Getting something for free is a great feeling. Getting something good for free, like an extra movie channel on your cable package, is even sweeter.

If you subscribe to the DISH Network HD Platinum package, you're getting a brand new channel – Starz MoviePlex. If you're not familiar, MoviePlex is a little different than the usual movie channel. Rather than a hodgepodge of movies, the channel focuses on one genre a day.

The new channel will soon be available through DISHOnline so you'll be able to watch the movie selection on MoviPlex whenever your heart desires. It's also one more channel that you can get to with DISH Network's Remote Access, assuming you subscribe to the HD Platinum package.

"Starz is excited to broaden the distribution of our channels through not only DISH Network's TV service, but also via its on demand and online platforms," says Starz VP Ed Huguez.
