  1. will dishnet have those that time to?

  2. Are we sure about this preview? I haven’t gotten any notification through Direct’s message system, and their previews and notifications always go hand-in-hand in my experience.

  3. The only announcement on DIRECTV that is free from 11/24-11/27 is the STARZ channel (which I subscribed to anyway)! It is now 1:22 AM on 11/24.

    1. It’s 12:32 here and still no preview on

  4. 4:21am on 11/24 and it’s not allowing me to access any HBO/Cinemax/Starz/Showtime channels…they aren’t even showing up on the guide.

  5. None of the channels identified above, ie HBO, Starz, and Showtime, have a free preview right now on my Directv. It is 11/24/16 @ 4am. I shouldn’t have gotten excited!

  6. DirectTV free previews always start at 6AM and ends at 6AM the morning after the last free day.

  7. Last year (2015) didn’t Xfinity/Comcast have a freeview of HBO, etc. beginning the day after Thanksgiving?

    Hopefully they’ll do that again this year, which would mean it would start tomorrow!!

  8. Just checked the hbo channels and yup…I’m getting them as of 3:14 on the 25th.

  9. It doesn’t show up on ‘my messages’ from Directv, but if I go to the (guide) the channels are there, and are free!

  10. 11.26,6.30pm… HBO channels are available on DirecTV but the OnDemand Channel is not! Disappointed there are no binge-watching options.

  11. did not get a message about this here is the last day of it.iam a direct tv subsriber.will you let us know.what is going on

  12. I’ve never had a problem with the free previews. Luv it
