    Saw that Dish Network are doing the exact same. It was just a matter of time before it was announced for DirecTV. Good news.

  2. Kimberly Says:

    Wondering if att-uverse will be doing this as well?!? They usually do but haven’t heard. If anyone knows, give a shout! Thanks!

  3. Ian Riley Says:

    Will Cox have a HBO and cinemax have a free preview to?

  4. Victor Ha Says:

    Kinda weird that they’re having it just 2(?) months after they already gave one. Coolbeans.

  5. Janine Says:

  7. Paul Dutkiewicz Says:

    Is there a uverse preview too

  8. Jackie Young Says:

    Why can’t we pre-record any HBO shows that will be on during this free weekend? We used to.

  9. Kim Says:

    If I record movies during free preview, will they remain on my DVR after free preview ends?

  10. Bernie Says:

    When will these channels be available on the guide for previewing?

  11. StevenC Says:

    For those of you new to DirecTV, free previews always begin and end at 3AM Pacific. Any show you record during the preview will stay on your DVR after the preview.

  12. Liz Says:

    Yes, I record movies and shows every free preview.

  13. Ingrid Says:

    It’s after midnight, but I can’t record anything without signing up HBO.

  14. Steve Says:

    So far only cinemax is on directv, no hbo yet on the free preview. when will hbo start?

  15. Christina Balocca Says:

    DirecTV changed their programing so that you can’t watch movies you recorded during the free preview after the free preview is over. Really sucks!

  16. Jane Says:

    I have DirecTV April 21-24 free preview HBO and cinemax…The cinemax went off but I still have the HBO..WHY?..It’s April 26th I be damn if I’m going pay for it! FYI for people just signed up for DirecTV​ the 3 month free movie channels are really NOT FREE! They charge you for the “free channels” after the 3 months is up!! Straight bs!

  17. Jane Says:

    Sorry they charge u after the first yr of the contract. For the so called “free movie channels”
