  1. I love the free previews, thank you. I always look forward to this.

  2. I believe the dates noted for the “DIRECTV Free Preview of HBO and Cinemax” are in error, noted as starting June 21, 2017 and ending June 24, 2017.
    As those dates have already occurred, should the correct dates be the corresponding dates in July, 2017?

  3. Yep, July. Sorry about that :)

  4. Winter is Coming

  5. They’re doing to promote the Game of Thrones premiere…so excited!!

  6. Except GOT previews the weekend before!

  7. Except GoT premieres the 16th, the free preview starts the 21st

  8. Bummer this is coming a week late for GOT. This is the only time I get to catch up. I’d purchase HBO but I’m already tapped out on what I can afford with Direct TV.

  9. Yeah it’s a shame it wasn’t last weekend for the Season 6 GOT catch-up but beggars can’t be choosers. We’ll get a repeat of the first episode of season 7 then the premiere of episode 2 as well as lots of good movies. Looking forward to it.

  10. Does this include on demand for these channels? Sorry I know this is a question not a comment.

  11. I would love to get these two channels but cable is way to expensive I only have basic

  12. Thank you for the free previews I love it.

  13. What time are the free previews to begin? I live in central standard time, it is past 1 am, and HBO and Cinemax are still not available.

  14. July 21st, so what time does it start in the morning and what time does it end? LOL
    I’m with DirecTV and I always loved it until I realized I’ve been getting screwed without having to get undressed.
    I have a set price with Choice package, they billed me over $200 to get the DVR. Now billing monthly fees for the DVR, while they’re offering new customers free DVR set up in four rooms, no additional charges. I had to pay $200 for the DVR service up front, now I’m being billed monthly fees, and with my package and having only two TVs, my bill iis close to $200 a month.
    I always love my DirecTV, not seems to consistently go out and rain storms, I got penalized for getting rid of Verizon internet in my bundle, the worst internet connection ever, time to switch my service

  15. What time do they start on the 21th & end on the 24th?

  16. Thanks so much! An recording alot of movies!

  17. This is crazy…..they have been offering FREE HBO AND CINEMAX from July 21st to the 24th. When I click on several movies, a pop up comes on giving me a rental rate for each movie…what happened to the FREE movies they are promising?????

  18. All DirecTV previews begin and end at 3am Pacific.

  19. Thanks you for the free previews for the weekend.

  20. About the ending date. Really odd because its now Tuesday July 25th (its midnight) and I’m still being able to see cinemax and hbo channels…
