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.
