HBO and Cinemax Free Preview

Free Preview Begins: September 6, 2022 (Tuesday)
Free Preview Ends: September 10, 2022 (Saturday)

Update: There are a lot more providers that are participating in this free preview! So far I  can confirm that DirecT, Dish Network, Verizon FIOS, AT&T U-Verse, Suddenlink, and RCN/Astound. are all showing this free preview. A special thanks to everyone who sent in a tip or commented!

A free HBO and Cinemax preview is coming up from September 6 through September 10. House of the Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel, will be premiering on August 21st so now would be a great time to watch the first couple of episodes.

So far I can confirm that this free preview will be shown on Cox. More providers may be added as this free preview gets closer. Any Cox customer with Countour or Cox TV will get free access to HBO Max and Cinemax including linear, On Demand, and online content.

Thank you, Natalie, for sending all this information to us. If you know about a free preview please let us know about it!

  7. Though this preview was supposed to run through Saturday, September 10, FiOS in eastern MA ended it for me around 1AM, so basically it ran through Friday. Apparently somebody screwed up.

  8. It even on Youtube TV app. When I used to have Spectrum they never did any free preview expect in 2020 when Covid first came out which cause the whole United State to be on a lockdown

  9. Yeah still movie going I wish they show until end of month
    Thank you

  10. What? I was supposed to get advanced warning that there was going to be free previews on HBOs and Cinemax! Why now? I keep on missing it and this is probably the third time that I have missed it! How did people find about it? I’ve been trying for years to get free previews and I have gotten any! What is going on? What should I do?

  11. Dang, I missed it again. I swear, I think I’ve missed everything all this year. How am I supposed to know in advance when the new previews are coming on?

  12. Dang, I missed it again. I have been missing all of these previews all year long. How can I get advance notice?

  13. How can I get advance notice of when free previews are coming on Verizon FiOS? I keep missing. Please let me know!

  14. Did you get a notice that HBO and Cinemax were doing a free preview, hopefully on Verizon?
