  1. It seems like it has been awhile since Verizon FiOS received any free previews.

    1. Fios had free showtime and epix in late August, unfortunately I missed the first few days.

      1. But that wasn’t even a proper preview, at least for me. Showtime was not actually available. Epix did not allow on-demand. That one was only the 2 Epix live channels for us.

    2. FiOS TV offers ‘Free View’ – Customers can activate one 48-hour free preview of each premium channel [HBO, SHOWTIME, Cinemax, STARZ, and EPIX], valid one time per premium channel, within a 12-month period. So, you can pick and choose free previews of an individual channel whenever you want. Or multiple channels if you want to go crazy.

      1. Thanks for that info!
        Unfortunately it sounds like I can’t use it, because I access FiOS TV via CableCARD and don’t have a Verizon set-top box. The page you link says
        “You’ll need to activate your Free View from your TV”

  2. What about Verizon. It’s been forever since had a free preview. What I pay for verizon they could throw us bone at least once a year.

  3. Yes, you are so right.Very disappointing.

  4. TDS fiber is making it available also that weekend

  5. What about Comcast/Xfinity? Do they even do free previews anymore?

  6. Frontier hasn’t had any free previews in forever. :(
