Movies on Television
Several cable and satellite television channels like Home Box Office (HBO), Starz, Encore and Showtime show movies all day long, without commercials. You'll pay a monthly fee for these services, in addition to the basic cable or satellite TV connection charge.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM), available as part of most basic cable or satellite packages, specializes in uninterrupted classic films, often from the black and white era, in many cases introduced by film experts.

Broadcast television stations also show movies, but these are usually interrupted by commercials and often edited to fit into the time slot, except when shown on certain non-commercial public television stations.
