HBO and Cinemax Free Preview

Free Preview Begins: March 13, 2020 (Friday)
Free Preview Ends
: March 16, 2020  (Monday)

Update: Verizon FIOS and AT&T will be showing this free preview as well!

There will be a free preview of HBO and Cinemax on DirecTV March 13th through the 16th. This will also be available for Cox customers as posted here. Hopefully, that means that other providers will participate as well!

This free preview is being shown to promote the season 3 premiere of Westworld. I’ll be watching, will you?

Thank you, Tom, 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. I didn’t realize that we had a free preview of EPIX in middle of February.

  2. Just checked my AT&T U Verse messages and it reads Free Preview march 13-16 HBO/ Cinemax in The Illinois area

    1. Thanks to Alex–I as well was just getting ready to comment as my ATT Uverse messages updated this morning indicated the same thing. And thanks to FPTV as always!

  3. Uverse is also showing a message that this preview will be available.

  4. Cox free preview is 3/13 – 3/16 as well, NOT 3/12 – 3/15 per your link. I called Cox this morning and they confirmed their preview starts 3/13.

  5. Also happening on Verizon FIOS right now!

    1. Wish I knew that. I used to get notifications from FIOS about these previews. Or we’d click on “Menu” a pop up would appear, or maybe it would be in the “Messages” part of Menu.

      Only messages I ever see is when FIOS will be removing channels. SMH

  6. It is on COMCAST OnDemand also. Go thru the Premium Channels, not the Free HBO preview link for more offerings. Thanks for the heads up on this. :-)

  7. Heads up to Optimum/Altice subscribers — we are getting the free preview also.

  8. What time does free preview end?

  9. Ugh, I guess I need to check this site more than once a week. I checked this site last week – no mention of free HBO-Cinemax on FIOS. I thought perhaps they would, usually a big season premiere of a show like Westworld, free previews kick in.

    Not blaming this page. Better yet, Verizon should let ME / US know when we get these free previews!!! I used to…for some reason not anymore. (As they sucked another decent chunk of money from my bank acct, today.)

  10. Where is the HBO Freeview folder on my Uverse guide? They’re supposedly free through 5/31/2020 due to coronovirus “stay’at’home” orders. But in order to get it one has to go th the HBO Freeview Folder. What?? Where???
