10/13/2003 02:00:00 AM Eastern

Showtime Networks said it will launch its second high-definition television (HDTV) channel — The Movie Channel HD — on Dec. 1.

The new channel will be a 1,080i widescreen service using an East Coast feed, the company said. Some 75 percent of the programming presented on the channel will be delivered in native HDTV format, most with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. The remaining programs will be upconverted.

Initial HDTV titles slated for December telecast on the new channel will include: "Bandits," "Hardball," "Novocaine," "Rollerball," "Sidewalks of New York," and "What's the Worst that Could Happen?" among others.
