  1. *fingers crossed* REALLY hope Directtv gets in on this one no word yet :( am hoping though

  2. There is also a free preview for DIRECTV
    on the 25th to 28th of this month.

  3. It sure would be nice if DirecTV would let their customers know in advancea bout these free previews. There has been more than one occasion where I found out after the fact and missed out. Thanks for the info, Roger!

  4. Really Roger? that is wonderful news I agree Double D a bit more of a heads up would be nice but I’ll take it looks like some pretty good stuff on this weekend

    thanks again Roger.

  5. Not working here this morning. Working for anyone else?

  6. I checked those channels for DirecTV this morning and nothing was showing up as being free. If somebody sees something different, let me know.

  7. Good morning all, Is dish network included in this free weekend preview?
    Please let me know. Thank you.

  8. nothing here either :( been a while since we had a free HBO I’m thinking hmmm.

    Big Dog yes Dish IS supposed to be included.

  9. My DIRECTV didn’t have these channels this morning.

  10. Anyone see this for FiOS yet?

  11. I just checked my FIOS TV, HBO and Cinemax is working and free this weekend.

  12. Damn, I guess I’m really not a Vz customer anymore :( (Frontier as of July 1 officially :p — I guess they use a different calendar than the rest of us)

  13. I have dish, but no cinemax preview. Does it start at specific time or should it be on now?

  14. yup nada on directtv :(

    bigdog not sure just saw the post saying ya’ll had the free weekend.

  15. On the Cox system in my area, there is just an HBO free preview, no Cinemax.

  16. On Directv, getting Showtime & TMC but no HBO or Cinemax.

  17. I’m not getting any of those, but I am getting one encore channel. (directv)

  18. We had a big storm roll through our area on Friday night, and we completely lost our DirecTV connection. Even if we had the free preview, it wouldn’t have mattered!

  19. We have Encore and it is still on right now. Probably only until tonight though. NO HBO or anything else. I am in Illinois on Directv.

  20. At 10 a.m. this morning, the Cox system where I live already re-encrypted the HBO channels, so the free preview already ended. I thought that the cable or satellite systems were supposed to run programming on the affected free preview channel(s) until the overnight hours of the end date — at least that is what usually happened when they ran free previews of HBO when I was younger.

  21. You’re right, tmanokc. Usually the free preview runs until at least midnight of the last day of the promo period. Someone got a little bit trigger happy with the off switch!
