Wow, talk about a great free preview! DirecTV will have a free preview of HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz January 11-13.

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

Channel Lineup:

501-511 – HBO
515-523 – Cinemax
525-531 – Starz
545 – 558 – Showtime



  1. When is Dish network going to have a free preview of show time? It have yet to see a show time preview on DISH.

  2. This Free Preview rocks but Jan. 11 to 14 is gonna happen.

  3. nice preview but as always it’s too short…lasts only 3 days. Some previews last a week so why not the movie channel previews?

  4. Let’s hope there is some fresh movies to DVR. How many times do they have to show “Greenberg” and a dozen others over and over again, for the past few years? (That’s why I don’t subscribe to HBO and Showtime. Enjoy the boxing, however.)

  5. Does anyone know if HBO and Showtime On Demand works during the free preview periods? Thanks.

  6. On Demand does not work unless you are subcribed and that sucks. I told Directv that on demand should work in free trials. Maybe someday on demand will work in free trials. It’s stupid that you have to be subscribed for on demand to work.
