DirecTV Free Preview of Showtime

Free Preview Begins: March 25, 2010 (Thursday)
Free Preview Ends: March 28, 2010 (Sunday)

If you’re a DirecTV customer, you’ll be able to catch a free preview of Showtime starting on March 25th and ending on March 28th.

Thanks Rudy for letting me know about this free preview! Do you know about an upcoming free preview? Let me know about it!

Update 3/11/10 – Thank you David and Scott who confirmed that this free preview is for all 9 of the Showtime channels. See below for the channel lineup.

Channel Lineup:

537 – Showtime & Showtime HD
538 – Showtime 2
539 – Showcase
540 – Showtime (West)
542 – Showtime Extreme
544 – The Movie Channel & The Movie Channel HD
545 – The Movie Channel (West)
547 – Flix
549 – Sundance



  1. Good Info!! I show Showtime as being 537 to 540 in channel numbers. Are they previewing all of these?

  2. Mike, I’m not sure. Right now the DirecTV website only shows that Showtime East will be available for the free preview, but I would think they would include all of them.

  3. It usually includes all of them, 537 to 542, and I believe, at other times Flix, 547, and Sundance, 549, have also been available.

  4. Having looked through those day’s schedules, I would recommend the films “The Bank Job”, “The Eye” (it’s just as good as the original) & Transsiberian” (all March 27th), for those who haven’t seen them. Unfortunately, I’ve seen most of what’s airing on those days.

  5. This free preview will include all of the Showtime channels (537-549).

  6. No Free Preview here :( but maybe because its only 1:50am (i.e. 2hrs into Thursday).
