    Thanks for the heads-up on this. I just caught a commercial for the Starz/Encore free preview during those dates, but didn’t realize it was a full U450 with HD channels. Great news!

    When they had the similar promotion last Thanksgiving I easily filled up my DVR. I’d better make sure I’ve got some free space on it next week.

  2. Steve Joyce Says:

    It sure would be nice if they activated it….wouldn’t it…’cause I sure am not getting it 2 hours after it was supposed to start

  3. Steve Joyce Says:

    5 hours now and no free preview guess I ‘ll be calling Direct TV on Monday

  4. R.L. Says:

    How do I access the free preview on ATT u-verse? I looked at the channels, and they say “not subscribed”. How is it free if I have to be subscribed?
    What time does it start today?

  5. Kent Says:

    Why is it not working? When I open a HBO channel it says I don’t have a subscription.

  6. Brian C. Says:

    So where is it? Turned on TV this morning and no free channels yet.

  7. Sammi Says:

    What time does the free preview start on the 22nd?

  8. Debbie Says:

    I’m an AT&T UVerse customer and I don’t have this off on my TV.

  9. roland barton Says:

    I’m not getting the free preview and I’m very disappointed

  10. SS Says:

    Says it starts 11/22 but its not working :-(
    None of the extra channels are coming up on my TV

  11. roland barton Says:

    I’m not getting the free preview

  12. Chad Fagan Says:

    Not getting it either…

  13. george Says:

    No free preview and the office is closed.

  14. Admin Says:

    Looks like they are telling some customers that there’s an “outage” and thus no free preview. http://forums.att.com/t5/Features-and-How-To/Annual-Thanksgiving-weekend-U450-Preview/m-p/3363201#U3363201

  15. Karla Says:

    Hey, I just reset my receiver and the free preview started. OHHHHH EHHHHHH!

  16. Ed Burnett Says:

    I can’t believe these people! They advertise a Free U450 Preview and they don’t deliver? I mean, how mean are they to tease us with this? U-verse is AT&T’s Cash Cow, you would think they would protect it with decent service?.

  17. lol u guys Says:

    Dudes it’s free, how cany any of you complain? lol hahaha

  18. george Says:

  19. Pat Woods Says:

  20. jwmartin Says:

  21. John Says:

  23. David Says:

    restart your boxes and you will have U450 preview

  24. Ann Lewis Says:

    Hey everyone, just reset your box at you will get all the stations!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Don Bell Says:

    False advertising. Now Saturday Nov 24th and no free Encore or Starz

  26. Rudi Says:

    Yeah, this was nice…went to watch a show Saturday & we were able to get half way through it before On Demand Cinemax crapped out. Nice Job ATT Uverse

  27. Works for ME Says:

    Im surprised so many of you had a bad experience. Let me just say its awesome.

  28. Alan S. Says:

    It’s a shame that some of you had trouble getting the preview started. Hopefully the tip that Karla and David and Ann (all above) shared worked to get your boxes rebooted.

    I enjoy this site for sharing that kind of information, but there is also the forums.att site for concerns that the people posting here don’t have an answer for.

    Luckily I didn’t have the problem, but it might be because I rebooted my box the evening before the preview started. It was just a coincidence that I did – I do that periodically because it always shows several hours more free space on my DVR after the reboot, and I knew I’d want as much space available as possible for recording.

    My only very minor issue – a couple of HD channels never came on. The Sony and MGM channels are the two that I can think of that remained blocked during the entire event.

    Overall I’m very happy with the long free preview weekend. I haven’t seen anything from U-verse yet about the Christmas free preview that jwmartin mentions above, but I’ll look forward to that one if it happens too.
