    HBO - Entourage, Hung, Cathouse, Real Sex

    Showtime - Weeds, Dexter, Misc softcore porn

    Cinemax - it's called skinemax for a reason

    Starz - completely useless.

    HBO has decent movies and the best shows (True Blood/Hung/Entourage/etc)
    Starz has the best movies

    I've got all 4 channels and if I had to choose only one it' be between the above two based on what you're more into.
    Didn't even mention porn because you should be watching that on your computer not your TV, which makes it irrelevant.

    HBO!!!

    Besides what Emartnj said, you also get reruns of boxing fights, boxing 24/7 which btw, the mayweather/marquez 24/7 starts this friday.

    I love HBO.

    HBO and Showtime do good boxing. I'm actually giving Showtime the edge in the boxing department recently. I mean HBO will have to do something special to top the Vazquez/Marquez trilogy and the SuperSix - that's for sure.

    If it was just one station before going digital I would say something other than hbo. Ever since getting the 12 channel package I definetly say HBO. Hbo zone is the ****. Don't feel like watching 'bee movie', 'racing stripes', 'sex in the city' or a katrina documentary? Switch over to HBOZ and watch shoot em up or some other R rated movie.

    This. Starz is pretty much all movies you could get from Redbox. I like the HBO shows a little bit more than Showtime (Hard Knocks, Entourage, Curb) but Showtime's shows are good too. Cinemax has movies too, but porn is the big draw.

    Are you getting just these individual channels or the packages with like the five or six different channels (i.e. HBO, HBO2, HBOCOM, etc.)

    I hate HBO. It repeats the same movies. They go in like one month rotations. They have some cool shows, but they aren't always paying. I don't know much about the rest, but I say no to HBO.
