There will be a free preview of HBO and Cinemax on Dish Network March 30-April 2. Hopefully more providers will be added to this list.

Thank you pagan for letting us know about this free preview! Do you know about an upcoming free preview? Let me know about it!

Channel Lineup:

300-314: HBO & Cinemax

Dish Network


  1. F*CK!!!!!! WHY NOT DIRECTV!!!????

  2. Sometimes the previews are on the same for both DirecTV and Dish Network, but often, they run different previews at different times. There is another link that shows what the past and upcoming previews are for DirecTV.

    But what I want to know is….

    Will this preview be available to ALL Dish Network customers or only to the ones Dish Network handpicks (HD customers)?

  3. i wish cox communications was involved with this preview theyre never involved with anything cool


  5. I dunno what Cox or DirecTV or ATT offers but this website has a link for those specific companies on the tab to the right.

  6. As far as the free preview being carried elsewhere, it might vary depending on the cable/satellite/telco operator, but some providers (such as Cox for example) will only air a free preview weekend for a premiere of a returning/new high-profile original series (such as “True Blood”, “Game of Thrones”, etc.).

  7. Will Game Change be available ?

  8. HBO/Cinemax preview (3/30 – 4/2) also available to all on FiOS TV

  9. Mediacom is also offering HBO free preview during these dates- I called yesterday and found out. HBO is also half price for 12 months when you sign up by 4/1.

  10. Are the free previews on or off for this weekend. They have been removed from Channel 103 – the free preview guide — just showing things I already subscribe to on my 250 channels.

  11. Christine

    Game change rebraodcast is saturday.

  12. You might want to check to confirm this, but I read that some Cox Communications service areas will also be carrying the free preview of HBO and Cinemax.

  13. Free Preview of HBO, Cinemax, & Starz is on 03/30-04/02 on Cox Las Vegas.

  14. if its a free preview then why doesn’t the ondemand work for these channels?

  15. When I woke up at 3 am.cox communications in my area was showing this preview also.just thought id pass that.on

  16. Cox, San Diego has it too!
