  1. I tried to find out when the Starz free preview was ending thru Dish chat, and they were clueless..Seems Dish doesn’t even know about the free preview..LOL

  2. Checking the guide it ends 2-00am Tuesday morning

  3. It’s not suprising that Dish technical support chat doesn’t know about a free preview that comes from the Programming department. Why would they?

    It ends at 11:59 PM PDT on April 4th. You can tell that because the channels in the guide turn green (not authorized) if you scroll past there into April 5th.

  4. It is up on the dish website that yes it does end on the 4th. Also, there is a free week of mlb from today threw the 10th

  5. @ Chas
    I did that with the channel guide and mine didn’t turn green at 2-00 am

  6. Until 2-00 am

  7. It’s nice that we’re just finding out and it’s April 6, 2016.
