    What about DirecTV Now?

  14. Debbie Says:

    Yup, always 5:00 am. right on the dot for central time zones for the start and end times of free previews. Looking forward to it! Will fire up the recorder…lol

  15. vinnie Says:

    Around 6am they turn on.

  16. Jeremy Cooke Says:

    From past experience I’ve found that it usually starts between 4am and 5am and finishes around the same time. I always try to record one or two movies as the freeview is about to end. Sometimes I get the whole movie and sometimes I don’t.

  17. Jeremy Cooke Says:

    Not in my experience. I don’t even look at the movies that start before 5am because chances are I won’t get them.

  18. Mark Says:

    How about FIOS? (It might make up for the STARZ On Demand debacle.)

  19. OP Says:

    We really need the free channels during the holidays not after or before, because there’s never anything good on during the holidays.
    Thanks for the free channels anyways

  20. Jeff Says:

    For what it’s worth, the message from DirecTV in the guide also mentions the Starz channels being part of the free preview as well.

  21. ashley Says:

    what about on demand for those channels during that free preview

  22. bob Says:

    I got same message. all premium weekend starz. encore showtime
    HBO. cinemax. didn’t say tmc.

  23. Dana Fidler Says:

    Here in Columbia, SC our freebies start at 12 am on the start date and ends at 6 am the morning after the end date.

  24. Kevin Says:

    No on demand for those channels, BOO !!!!!
