  1. I thank you for keeping me informed on the free DirecTV. I wish I could afford it monthly, but I’m on a fixed income so I have to stretch my cash, so I love the free stuff, keep it going. Thanks, James T.

  2. I haven’t seen it listed yet either on the channel guide or on their app, but I wouldn’t be surprised if ATT Uverse has the same preview, being as how they own DirecTV now. If/when I see it, I’ll post here as I have been checking both the last couple of days.

  3. It seems HBO & Cinemax will be free for both weekends. The 17-20 is at HBO’s request because they will be airing their “Night of Too Many Stars” to benefit autism, while the 23-26 preview is from DirecTV as part of the free premium Thanksgiving weekend.

  4. Almost all of these channels were still blacked out just a couple of hours ago, leaving me unable to set chosen shows to record within the stated time above. Is there a way to verify that this promo is valid?

  5. My family too is on fixed income so we do like and enjoy the free week end treats. Thanks Direct Tv. We will enjoy this as we have family in town for Holidays. Happy Thanksgiving!
