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.

of channels that show movies without interruptions (commercial or otherwise):
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.
(if a channel has both East and West instances, only the eastern one is listed above).
