  1. How do I get it ?Free he preview.

    1. How can I learn when DirecTV is posting Free preview channels

  2. Free he tv preview

  3. I have my Hundred channels for $35 from DirecTV now. I remember how my partner who is now dead was overcharged buy DirecTV. She was lied to and bamboozled and I would never talk to those people again. I understand that DirecTV now is owned by the same people and so long as I get my $35 for a hundred channels I will stay. Other people will come up just as good as DirecTV now and I have no loyalty.

  4. Big deal crap channels anyway

  5. I am at Direct Tv subscriber for years and I’m not getting those new channels this week

  6. So Dish already started there free preview for May as I see the channels come up on my guide, but they have nothing on their preview channel nor online-and you don’t list anything yet either. Why do they not release their free preview info a little before it starts or at least the day it starts? Thx

  7. Just a tease 7 more channels with nothing on them, OH JOY!!! When the contract is up I put up a anttena and direct and dish both can kiss off with there high price nothing on TV!!!!

  8. For those asking how they get notices from DirecTV, they are in your on-screen messages. They alert you to free previews that way.

    As for channel quality – there’s a reason I don’t pay extra for these. That being said, when they give the free preview I mainly watch Hallmark Movies & Mysteries for their original movies, which many cable providers give in basic packages with the Hallmark Channel. The other channels that will occasionally have something worth watching on in my experience are 566-568 which are HDNM, MGMHD, and SONYHD. But what they put on is VERY hit or miss, but you can see a halfway decent number of 80s and 90s movies with actors your know on there. Don’t expect to see much from more recent years at all and not a ton in the way of blockbuster titles.

  9. I Like Universal HD All Movies

  10. Direct tv needs to get away from contracts. They are the worst with a 1 year promotion to match competition then after the year is up…screw you by doubling the amount due every month. $93 just to watch tv!!! Ridiculous!!! They fuck you by mixing in shit channels with some good ones in each package. How many news, religous, and infomercials does one watch. I wouldve never signed up with Direct tv. Once my contract is up…..never again
