  1. Haven’t seen anything about Comcast/Xfinity offering this yet. Although they definitely used to do these more in the past, they didn’t have the last HBO free preview weekend either to my knowledge (in April for the Game of Thrones premiere).

  2. Cable one has confirmed on their Facebook page that they will have the preview this weekend too. They mentioned HBO only so I don’t know about Cinemax.

  5. I have Comcast Garden State (N.J.) Cable. We have the Cinemax and HBO free preview, but on OnDemand only. Not on the HBO or Cinemax channels.

  6. @chris bradley, Watch-a-thon had nothing to do with the HBO free preview last time, so I wouldn’t count that.

    Not sure what’s going on with Comcast limiting things lately, OnDemand is better than nothing but not sure why they are limiting it at all.

    @Rey Silva – Yes, DirecTV includes OnDemand during the free preview, they always do.

  7. Ha, ha

    Only can be seen on demand on Cox Omaha, not current schedule. Bummer!

    Nothing like the old stuff some of us has seen before again and again.

  8. Directv has always let you record or watch On-Demand HBO shows during freebie weekends — this time it’s not letting me record or watch On-Demand. Anyone know why not?

  9. I have UVerse and I am recording some movies, do I need to cancel anything after this weekend? Or will it just become unavailable to me again? Like when I first got UVerse I got HBO free for 6 months then had to cancel or I would be charged monthly for it, will I be charged monthly or will it just not let me watch anymore? I don’t want to get charged

  10. Is there a limit on how much we’re able to watch. I was catching up on Game of Thrones and couldn’t watch any more past season 5 episode 4

  11. Amanda, everyone gets the free preview. They will not start charging you after the free weekend. Think about how many people would scream if that happened, especially since many customers don’t even know about the promotion.

  12. Some (all?) service providers only allow you to watch recorded movies from the DVR if you still subscribe to the channel it was originally recorded from, so be careful with recording shows this weekend to watch later. I have my own (non-cable provided) CableCard DVR, so I don’t have to worry about that.

  14. The free preview days need to be advertised. It’s Monday (June 22), now TECHNICALLY it’s Tuesday and I’m just now discovering that this happened.

  15. wow…the free preview usually starts and ends at 9 pm (pacific) and it was still on at 6:30 am this morning (Tues).

    also if you watch a minute of a movie and then stop it before the free preview officially ends the movie will still be available even when they pull the preview. i loaded up 6 movies to watch that way. i checked and they are still available.

  16. I do not have free stations even though Comcast has stated that we will have free HBO/Cinemax for the week. What good is it to advertise it and then their customers don’t receive it.

  17. Dear Rep: I agree with the above comments. Why go to the trouble and expense of announcing a free trial HBO/MAX weekend if you fail to follow through with your offer. not only is the customer disappointed, but per haps even bitter about being suckered into believing it to be a credible, genuine offer. Tis better to not offer than to offer and then take away.
