Backed by the nation's biggest cable operator, the Encore cable channel launched its new Starz pay television network Tuesday with a promise that it will not air excessively violent films. At a press gala that featured several major film industry figures, Encore Chairman John J. Sie said Starz will not show NC-17-rated movies and will shun "exploitation" and "B-grade" films. But Sie stopped short of specifying his criteria for unacceptable films, saying, "When you see it, you know it."
