Men talking at a bar
HBO/The Deuce

Update 9/19 – This may only be for certain regional COX areas. There’s also another HBO & Cinemax free preview scheduled for November that you may get in place of this one.

Cox will be showing a free preview of HBO and Cinemax September 28 – October 1. You can catch up on HBO’s The Deuce, and enjoy new movie releases that include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Jackie, and Frost/Nixon.

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

  1. Usually when it’s HBO and Cinemax all providers eventually announce the same thing. I’m waiting patiently for DirecTV.

  2. Is there a link to the source for this? I just got my most recent COX bill, and it didn’t say anything about a freeview next month.

  3. Hi Karl – it was found on a bill statement, guess we’ll have to wait and see!

  4. I don’t know if the 9/28 – 10/01 freeview reported above is only in certain areas, but I live in Central Kansas, and my COX bill I just got dated for 9/17 says we’re not getting the HBO/MAX freeview until 11/17 – 11/20. It also says EPIX and StarzEncore freeview from 11/17 – 11/30. Both freeviews are for “customers who subscribe to a Cox TV Economy, a Cox Advanced TV or a Cox Contour TV package”.

    I’ll still check my channels on 9/28 just in case, but we never got any notice in our bills here about it.

  5. Thanks so much Karl!

  6. Just like Karl I will not be getting the Cox Free Preview starting on 9/29. I haven’t heard or seen anything about that upcoming preview. I will however be getting a Free Preview of HBO and Cinemax from 11/17 – 11/20 and StarzEncore from 11/17 – 11/30 on Cox cable. I live in Southern California and this was stated on by Cox bill on 9/14/17.

    1. Cox Cable – Las Vegas, per latest invoice:
      Free Preview HBO and Cinemax 11/17–11/20 (including OnDemand)
      Free Preview EPIX and StarzEncore 11/17-11/30 (including OnDemand)

  7. The notice for free preview was in the August Invoice. When I came home this evening , the free preview was not on. I called COX and they informed me that the free preview for this weekend has been cancelled and the free preview is now on 11/17 – 11/20. When I asked whether they were supposed to inform about the cancellation they just mentioned the new preview and did not answer that question.
