  1. Encore

    Encore is an American premium cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Starz, LLC. Its programming features mainly older and recent theatrically releasted feature films, although some of its multiplex channels also carry acquired television series. The headquarters of Encore and its sister channels Starz and MoviePlex are located on the Meridian International Business Center complex in Meridian, Colorado. As of March 31, 2013, Encore's programming is available to 35.1 million pay television subscribers in the United States, which outpaces HBO's approximately 30 million pay subscribers; Encore's higher subscriber base is due to the fact that its subscribers do not necessarily have to subscribe to Starz in order to receive the channel as some providers offer the Encore multiplex on a separate digital cable tier from Starz; however, Starz and Encore are often sold together in a singular package.

La plupart des inventeurs, encore aujourd'hui, souhaitent secrètement qu'ils avaient inventé les jeans, en raison de la beauté et de la grâce, couplé avec simplicité et confort, que les jeans bleus ont créé dans notre monde.

    They were nice enough to let me play two songs with them that we had planned out Saturday after the round at Riviera and it was a blast, then they actually called me up during the encore for the last song and told me the chords when I was on stage and turned my guitar back on, so that was really fun, getting a little bit of a bonus song there. So it is something I'll always remember.
