  1. You know what would be cool? If you had a little button that added these as a new event to Google Calendar or iCal straight from this site when you clicked it.

    Because when I find out about these previews, that’s right where I go ;)

  2. Looks like Dish Network is doing a preview of Starz/Encore RIGHT NOW. Anyone know how long it will last?

  3. Sure do it lasts till Feb 2012

  4. Amazing! Why can’t directv do that?

  5. My understanding is that Dish Network is doing the full year in honor of their 30th anniversary.

  6. Question: At what exact times do the free previews start and end on DirecTv..In the past, I’ve DVR’d shows past midnight of the last day. Other times, they won’t record.

  7. What’s funny is that Dish is giving Starz away free for 1 year to its subscribers but DirecTv only gives Starz free to its subscribers for a few days? Starz and DirecTv are OWNED BY THE SAME COMPANY-LIBERTY ENTERTAINMENT!

  8. From my experience, previews always start and end at 3am pacific.

  9. Usually midnight eastern time.

  10. I would like to receive those channels.

  11. Did anyone see the free preview of Starz yet on Directv yet and if there is a repeat of it does anyone know where can I watch it?
