Free Preview Begins: January 6, 2012 (Friday)

There’s going to be a big nationwide free preview of Showtime from January 6-8 to promote the series premiers of House of Lies, Shameless, and Californication. They’ll also be showing the premier of The King’s Speech.

So far I can confirm that this is going to be available on DirecTV, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Verizon FIOS, Mediacom, and RCN. No word yet if Dish Network will be showing it.

Thanks so much to Wayne, T.L., Mike, and David for letting me know about this free preview. If you know of a free preview, please let me know.
