    I wonder if comcast will do it they usually do it when multiple providers do it but they dont mention it

  2. Russ Says:

    Why does Optimum Cablevision NEVER offer these free previews? Terrible!

  3. bg stine Says:

    Time Warner NEVER offers these free previews.
    It is just another reason people don’t like Time Warner and switch.

  4. Malefic Says:

    It started already on Dish (Thursday).

  5. KsGuy loudly Says:

    Cox is the worst, high prices, price increases in fine print, subcontractors that damage more than they fix. I wish some one in my area had better service. You want a free preview…lol

    Is fios actually giving a free preview? because they started the free preview when you want it?

  9. Betty Says:

    Does anyone know how I can watch HBO on Demand during the Free Preview? When I try to watch Game of Thrones on Demand, a pop up box says I need so subscribe. I can watch the regular HBO channels during the Free Preview weekend fine with no pop up box. Thanks!

    We finally got the free HBO & MAX free weekend …Saturday afternoon. I checked twice this morning and all day Friday and nothing. Same thing on the last free preview.

    For other Comcast customers not seeing it they didn’t put in on the front page of the OnDemand this time. You go to: OnDemand… Premium channels…then HBO OnDemand (or MAX OnDemand).

  42. Brandon Says:

    Comcast subscribers do have access to HBO and Cinemax, but only Online on the XFINITY TV GO App or XFINITY ON DEMAND.

    (as usual no announcement from Comcast)

  46. Derek Says:

    Can anyone tell me exactly when it ends? Wanna know if a movie I want to record will get interrupted. On direct, the guide is not greyed out on those channels like normal (free preview) but they are all white text for the whole week.

  48. MairzyTex Says:

    I’ve been checking this site every Thursday, but didn’t get a chance to last week. Sure enough, the Free Preview wasn’t announced here until the day before it began. I missed it entirely. Wish there was a way to know in advance when these free preview weekends are coming up.
