Premium Channel Suggestions...

I love my Verizon Fios.. I had the other.. I'm pleased with Fios.. however I cannot stand it's Premium Channel Selections.. 

Verizon's Premium Channel selections are horrible. I pay for all of the premium channels.. and there is not ONE movie I want to watch.. ok so HBO added avatar.. I've watched it.. now what.. nothing.. their HBO list is short, they show the same movies on Stars, Showtime, Epix, Encore all of their premium channels over and over and over and over, for years..... I mean years.. these movies like "Castaway" have been on premium channels for freaking years.....  not to mention that they add to their "list of movies"  Avatar.. behind the scenes as a movie choice.. really???? who cares whats behind the scenes.. ADD MORE MOVIES and change them more often.. I pay for it!!!!! .. I'm getting very annoyed at paying top dollar for NOTHING and in this economy saving my money helps.. So.. do I drop all premium channels and download movies on my WII through netflix for 9 bucks a month.. this is sooo tempting.

I also think there are classic timeless movies from the 50's 60's 70's that should be aired on a premium "Classic's only Channel"  Movies like Summer of 42, Love Story, or old Elvis/Jerry Lewis Movies.  I pay for Premium channels.. and NEVER watch anything.. the movies I do see that I want to watch COST ME MONEY... my verizon Bill is already over 200 dollars a month.. why do I have to pay more.. it's ridiculous.. really..

Please.... ....

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the actual channel provider decide what movies are available.  Verizon is only rebroadcasting what they are receiving.  Am i missing something here, not sure why Verizon is at fault for lack of movies you would enjoy.

Jumpin68 is correct.  Verizon has NOTHING to do with content.  Just as Verizon is not the one who alter the movies.  Content and elimination of picture information are done totally by HBO, Max, and Starz. (Showtime, HDNet Movies, and MGM-HD are the ONLY HD channels showing films as they were intended to be seen...uncut and unaltered.  Any complaints about movie selection should be directed to the specific channels
