    I expected DOTM to be on cable, ya know Starz, HBO, etc by now. Normally it is 8-12 months after a theater release and now on cable we have the Help, Jack and Jill and several others that were released in theaters after DOTM.
    It isn't going to be one of those movies like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Indiana Jones 3, etc that NEVER shows up on cable is it? I mean the other two showed up. I just haven't even heard advertising saying it is coming soon.

    We also already got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on cable already. And it was on cable for a while now, plus the movie was released a few weeks after DOTM.

    Well I watched a bit of it a couple of nights ago on showtime, but that was on pay view tv. If you have free tv, well you'll have to wait a while.

    I'm sure the cost to acquire the rights to air Smurfs and Jack and Jill is easier and far cheaper than it would be to secure the rights to DOTM. Like someone else said, it's making more money on a pay channel now and when it stops collecting cash on there it'll auction off the rights to the next highest cable bidder.

    Epix obtained the rights for DOTM so it won't be shown on HBO like the first two movies.

    DOTM already has been on cable, but only on Epics, which is a new channel that you have to subscribe to, iron man2, and some other movie are on there that no other channels have, for Thor, Stars is always playing that movie

    Why would I need this to be on cable when my blu-ray disc is readily available?

    HBO sucks nowadays. Only good thing on it is "Game of Thrones" I canceled it back a few years ago when they started to not play alot of movies.
