I hope you enjoy "This Weekend." Please share your thoughts on it with me via e-mail.

This is a work in progress.  I will attempt to continue improving its format as time passes.

Turner Classic Movies, Fox Movie Channel, HBO(s), Cinemax(s), Showtime(s) and The Movie Channel.
Some channels listed may be part of basic service and some may be premiums.
