Free Preview of Starz & Encore

  1. Why doesn’t optimum ever do these?

  2. Since their parent company, Cablevision Systems, never seems to offer free previews either, I presume they either have no clause in their affiliation agreement to allow them or they simply don’t want to.

    HBO, Showtime and Starz can’t force a provider to provide free previews, they can only make the opportunity to do so available.

    Have you considered writing Cablevision a letter to ask them directly?

  3. What happened to the “add to google calendar” buttons that used to accompany these posts? I really miss those.

  4. Verizon Fios is also doing the free preview of HBO/Cinemax this weekend.
