Anyone have Encore Movie Channels?
 
I have Dish Network and we have Starz and Encore on our low-mid level package, I don't watch these much unless there is a series I like on but the lately I can't help but notice that Encore has been playing the movie "An American President" over and over again. This movie stars Michael Douglas and Michael J. Fox, it was made in 1995 during the Clinton era AWB. They portray Douglas as President who takes a hard stance against crime and near the end of the movie says he is throwing out the "crime bill" and introducing new legisaltion which recognizes you cannot get crime off the streets without banning assault weapons and he will go door to door if he has to to get support. He is portrayed as a big hero president for having this view. He also reduces fossil fuel use 80% to combat global warming. :rolleyes:
I believe Encore is playing the hell out of this movie as their way to speak out against 2A. I will be unsubscribing from Encore movie channels.

I have the same & they play every movie over & over & over :(
They cud'nt care less about politics---

Yes I know they play everything over and over but I find it a coincidence they are choosing now to play the hell out of a anti 2A movie which addresses an awb in an heroic way. A not very popular movie to begin with that I cannot remember seeing on any movie channel in years. I don't know for sure on how they stand politically but I am willing to bet they're right along the others who have made moves to take guns off the air and portray guns as the enemy, I put them right alongside the MSM.

who knows what the motive or reason behind rerunning that movie title is??

We have Encore mostly to watch the old westerns. Like most cable movie channels they show a movie several times over a week long period then switch to something else.

I understand they rerun movies, I have had satellite tv for many years, I am not talking about re running movies more so their choice of movie to re run at this particular time to me shows a left leaning tendency of the company. This is on the plain encore channel not the encore mystery or western or love etc.
