Channel Lineup:

Check with your local provider.


  1. What is weird is that DirecTV usually always has a free preview when GOT premieres. No sign of of one this time. Such a shame.

  2. Not strange. Just early. Promotion of series tend to be channel driven. DirecTV and others will announce over the next week if HBO is opening access.

  3. I think since the final season is so short they want to milk every week HBO subscribers that they can since so many people subscribe just for Game of Thrones and then cancel

  4. I’m sure they will. directtv being owned be AT&T as is HBO&Cinemax. Downside is I have Dishnetwork. Dish and HBO aren’t on speaking terms. Of course HBO isn’t what it was as many of upper management at HBO have resigned because of AT&T’s invasive management.

  5. DirecTV is doing only HBO (not Cinemax) for one full week starting April 8 = 14.

  6. What about AT&T U-verse? Will this free preview weekend be aired on AT&T U-verse? Many thanks!

  7. Is Uverse doing any free hbo preview for this?

  8. Yes, U-Verse will offer free HBO but appearantly not Cinemax. Unusual but that was the promo was sent out as e-mails to subscribers like me.

  9. Att uverse is included. Already have HBO and cinemax.

  10. The note above about DirecTV is incorrect. Check your inbox if you have DirecTV.

    7-DAY Free HBO & Cinemax Channels 501-523, runs through Sunday, April 14 to include the GOT premiere.

  11. ATT Uverse is currently showing both HBO and Cinemax here in Indy!

  12. Well apparently starting today Uverse has both HBO and Cinemax just noticed it and have both of them

  13. FREE PREVIEW WEEK on HBO/Cinemax this week for GOT on U-verse, not sure if on Direct TV. It started today at noon (1p EST/12p CST), I think it was. Suppose to last until the premiere of the Last Season of GOT , on 4/14/19. Happy watching!

  14. A lot of the smaller regional cable providers have the preview of HBO or HBO and CINEMAX. Definitely check if you are a subscriber of anything regional. Plenty have posted on Twitter that their free preview starts today.

  15. Youtube TV not offering the Free Previews Of HBO or Cinemax. Their price has jumped from $35 a month to $50 a month although there are now 70 channels available (including all local)

  16. Why can’t I get the free preview weekend? It is April 14 and HBO is NOT free.

  17. Verizon Fios did not offer a free preview, this was an activation of the free preview 48 hours. We just found out the hard way by losing access to hbo this afternoon

  18. There is an Outdoor Channel free preview on DirecTV for the premiere of The Brigade, and is from April 20th, 2019 to April 22nd, 2019.

  19. WHY is FreePreview.TV so slow with free preview updates? There is an Outdoor Channel free preview on DirecTV for the premiere of The Brigade, and is from April 20th, 2019 to April 22nd, 2019.

    That good enough?

  20. I live in Fairfax, VA and we did not have any free previews on HBO & Cinemax, nor the preview on STARZ
