  1. I saw that this preview was supposed to start, but I never got a chance to view these channels. The preview never said you needed to have the HD equipment, and yet it just said that the preview was going to start

  2. Raagan the first sentence of this post clearly states that the free preview is for DirecTV customers who currently have HD access.

  3. Shame these channels aren’t included in the basic HD package which I’m paying for.
