I was watching Scream 2 on Scream lastnight & with about 1/2 hour to go (after rewindind it digital tv) it skipped forward twice. My remote controsl was on the coffee table untouched. it kind of peeved me off since it was a free preview . Also it seesm that Scream shows the same movies every few days & alot of the are not horror but action. All the more reason i don't order it
I started a Scream Television thread awhile ago, and I said that I feel Scream really sucks. I have it as part of my cable package, but I would not spend money to buy it a la carte. The channel plays way too many thriller, action films i.e. Independance Day, Broken Arrow, etc constantly, and doesn't play enough actual Horror. I actually really enjoy Drive-In Classics for the simple reason that the channel actually plays lots of great TROMA stuff from The Toxic Avenger to Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. and all kinds of other great B-movies. Most of the Canadian digital cable channels have a very low viewership, and as a result the budgets are low, hence the fact the channels generally have a 6 or 8 hour loop of shows in a 24-hour period and that causes tons of repetition.
