Default Which Premium is Best for HD?

So, the wife wants to subscribe to one premium channel a month. She is more concerned about movies and I'm more concerned about movies in HD. In your opinion, what is the best premium channel for movies and HD content?

I prefer Showtime these days. They have many HD movies as well as some great original HD programs.

The STARZ premium package has the most channels for the money.

When you subscribe you have to keep that service for at least one month after that you can switch to another one at no charge so you can try them all one month at a time and see which one you like.

I got a bunch of premiums free when I signed up and I like HBO and Showtime for their original series. I'm not much for movies though. Starz has the most HD channels though. Cinemax has the least overall so skip them.

Showtime is the only one to show most all HD movies in OAR as far as I know. HBO crops most everything greater than 1.78:1 now.
