Why in the world did Starz/DirecTv change the call letters
in the program guide?? ( DirecTv combo unit.)
The old ones were clearly labeled, more importantly, I had
them memorized!!

Probably, but more important, some of the channels themselves seem to
have changed, and there are now obvious, annoying bugs permanently
placed in the lower right hand corner of each.

Theer is now something called Starz Edge, whatever the hell that is;
it's replaced Starz Theater. Black Starz is now Starz in Black for
some reason. True Stories is now Encore Drama.

I heard Starz was in trouble. This won't help.

Showing a logo for a minute for a couple of times during the movie is no big
deal, but yes they don't seem to disappear now during movies!!! :mad: Logos
and end credit ruining...that's why I subscribed to a premium channel to get
away from that but not with Starz/Encore. :mad:
