  1. Really looking forward to this. Seems like a year since the last one. Hope there’s some good movies on.

  2. Not that i care all that much, but wasnt this posted already?

  3. DirecTv Sux. They never tell you when yhese free runs are and only do it once a year. PLus they only give you stars and encore, never anything good.

  4. Dan, you’re right! That’s what I get for posting these things so far ahead of time.

  5. No worries, i just got my hopes up when i saw another free preview, but as Kurt says Directv has kind of stingy with their freeviews lately.

  6. Odd, but 527-542 already up for me.

  7. well how come they stopped doing the HBO & Cinemax free previews? I miss watching skinemax. LOL

  8. I tried to program my DVR for movies this weekend and DirectTV told me I didn’t have those channels???

  9. how do you get free previews if you don’t have a cable/satellite box?? If you even can

  10. Unfortunately the on screen “Guide” does not list what movies or shows are on, so it’s hard to plan in advance what to watch…I was hoping you might have that info here.

  11. Enjoyed it. Got a lot of good movies on my DVR. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait so long for the next one.
