(1) Point Values depend of frequency of offense. (E.g. full time logo yields a lower rating than occasional logo and voiceovers on all movies leads to lower rating than voiceovers only in prime time.)
(2) The ratings include only services that are predominantly movie channels in which movies are shown without commercials. Pay-per-view services are not included.
(3) American Movie Classics, once one of the highest rated services on this site, is no longer listed as it now interrupts its movies with commercials.
