      Just spotted on the Outpost Gallifrey http://www.gallifreyone.com forums and
      confirmed on the Starz! website http://www.starz.com that the 1996 Doctor
      Who Movie will be airing in the Starz/Encore suite of premium channels in
      the US starting in June. This probably means that the US Sci-Fi Channel's
      rights to the movie have expired.

      So far, there are 9 broadcasts scheduled on the "Mystery" channel, and 3
      broadcasts scheduled on "MOVIEplex". Here are the scheduled airdates and
      times. If you have one or both of these channels, remember to determine
      which Feed(s) you have access to and adjust for local time.

      Thursday 3 June 9:30AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Thursday 3 June 4:45PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Wednesday 9 June 7:30AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Wednesday 9 June 3:20PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Sunday 13 June 11:45AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Friday 18 June 7:45AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Friday 18 June 8:45AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - MOVIEplex
      Friday 18 June 4:50PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Friday 18 June 5:50PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - MOVIEplex
      Friday 18 June 11:10PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery
      Late Friday 18 June 12:10AM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - MOVIEplex
      Tuesday 29 June 2:40PM EDT East Feed / PDT West Feed - Mystery

      It looks like the movie's primary homes will be the Mystery Channel and
      MOVIEplex.. Beyond them, the relevant channels they might air it on in the
      future are Starz!/Starz! HD, Encore/Encore HD, Starz! Theater, Starz!
      Cinema, Action, Love Stories (stretching a little there), and the Starz
      OnDemand service. I'm fairly certain it will never air on Black Starz!,
      Starz! Kids, Starz! Family, Westerns, True Stories, and WAM! Not all
      channels are available with all providers - no sign of MOVIEplex on DirecTV,
      Dish Network, or VOOM.

      The Starz & Encore Channels tend to be commercial-free, uncut programming,
      and no crushing of the end credits. For people who have these channels, it
      will probably be the best that the Doctor Who movie has looked in the USA to
      date. If you don't have that suite of channels and you kept meaning to see
      Doctor Who the next time Sci-Fi ran it, you are probably out of luck for a
      while.
