Free Preview of Showtime

Free Preview Begins: March 19, 2020 (Thursday)
Free Preview Ends: March 26, 2020 (Thursday)

Sorry for the late notice on this one!

Showtime is running a free preview and DirecTV, AT&T U-Verse, Comcast Xfinity, TDS, RCN, Spectrum, Frontier FIOS, and Dish Network are showing it now until March 26th. Dish Network is showing this free preview until April 3rd and TDS , Spectrum (also showing a free preview of EPIX), and Xfinity are showing it until April 19th. Frontier is showing it until April 18th.

This would be a great time to catch up on Black Monday or Homeland.

Thank you, Oscar and Monique, for letting us know about this free preview! Do you know about an upcoming free preview? Let me know about it!

Channel Lineup:

Check with your local provider.


  1. March 26 is a Thursday, not Sunday.

      1. Do you know if this free preview is available on Mediacom?

  2. What about Cox Cable are they showing the free Preview too

  3. I hope other movie channels decide to give the free previews during our national crisis. It would help with having to stay inside.

    1. I believe you meant to say “I hope other cable and satellite TV providers decide to give the free previews during our national crisis. ” Anyways, its unlikely that will happen. DirecTV for instance already ran the free previews of HBO/Cinemax and Movies Extra Pack earlier this month. And they already did the free trials of Starz and Epix last month. This Showtime preview is the last of their premium packages. No way do I see DirecTV making any of them free again that quickly. I would be shocked if any of the cable and satellite providers would be THAT generous during this public health crisis.

      1. AT&T announced that there would also be free:
        STARZ: 3/26-4/2
        EPIX: 4/2-4/16
        HBO: 4/17-4/20

        for Uverse, DirecTV and ATT TV


        1. Toddy, I read AT&T’s notice. Its nice of them to do that. However a lot of people (hopefully not RobbG!) who will look at the upcoming free channels and STILL say thats NOT good enough…. wishing DirecTV would give ALL their premium movie channels for free indefinitely until the national crisis is over. I say this upcoming free trial schedule is more than fair. Others will find a way to complain. You heard the old saying that beggars can’t be choosers…

  4. This is now playing on Spectrum SoCal (TWC), although on demand only.

    1. Do your circumstances allow you to get outside and still practice social distancing? Also, Uverse (probbly others) is providing more On Demand content during this preview.

  5. Not Verizon Fios, unfortunately..

    1. Yeah, I noticed that too

  6. Spectrum is participating too.

  7. On actual Xfinity X1 box, shows Showtime “Now through April 19”

  8. i just checked on demand comcast goes from Today March 20 til Apri 19th

  9. Testing on Xfinity Comcast in WA — their preview of Showtime , Epix, and Hitz are not working .. have rebooted set top to see if that is issue but likely a more centralized issue in our state.

    1. are you watching ON DEmand or the Actual channel its only on demand thats free

  10. Not all spectrum customers are getting this free preview. My grandparents have spectrum and no free previews

  11. Showtime and Epix Free Preview extended to April 19 in Charter Spectrum NYC.

  12. On Spectrum/Time Warner Cable this Showtime free preview is still going on until April 19, 2020

  13. for spectrum, unfortunate will not be able to watch the finale for Homeland since the free preview ends one week before
