Cinemax, Starz, Showtime, Sports Pack are $13.99 individual cost.
Those 5 packs mix and match for a built in savings. HBO $17.99 and Starz $13.99 would add up to $31.98, but the two pack is $30.99. So the 5 premiums have their own special bundling.
Encore by itself (now called Starz Encore as they have been included in the Starz pack for years) is a newer option. Though I recalled it being $8.99. Doesn't bundle with the others, but is a cheaper option if you don't want the full Starz Pack. And the Encore channels are also part of the Ultimate package.
As a note, if you have Ultimate and 4 premium packs (one of which being HBO), then the Premier package becomes cheaper.
