  8. Does the preview start at midnight Pacific time?

  10. With DTV we were able to go in as soon as the “free preview” message appeared and record what shows we wanted within that preview time slot. That’s not allowed with AT&T.

  11. I wonder if we can still download whole seasons the way we did with DTV.
