  1. FYI for those AT&T customers looking to get some good movies on your DVR – the Uverse box will not allow you to record anything, and we confirmed this with AT&T customer service this morning! How frustrating!

  3. Thanks freepreview.tv. If I had to rely on Verizon, I’d never know about anything, or at best I’d know about it too late to do anything about it.

  5. @Paul, hey why don’t you just stop being so cheap and just subscribe to HBO then. You seem to moan and whine everytime that a round of Free Previews come around. Just because Cox Communications isn’t giving you free handouts doesn’t mean that we need to hear the bashing of them. I see 2 posts in a span of 3 hours total time. Get a life already. Maybe go outside and do something that doesn’t require a TV…

  8. I’m in texas, with Verizon Fios, and Cinemax is not viewable. I have HBO, but not Cinemax.
    I called Customer service, and the representative said that she wasn’t showing anything other than a discount to subscribe.

  9. Note to Nina C:
    I have U-Verse and I just recorded and watched a show. I have set it up to record a bunch of movies this weekend! Sorry you are unable to do the same. :(

  10. Chris Bradley do you have Comcast as well?I’m still not getting free anything. I had to call Comcast the last time they gave a free preview of Showtime. Looks like I may have to call again :(

  11. It is only on Demand not the actual channels. Also it is only for xfinity customers. I am not sure if Verizon Fios gets it even though it has a connection with Comcast.

  12. Is anyone else amazed at how frequent these free previews are now?

    Cinemax was free last month. Now they are free again?

    Is this the new tactic to build subs now, to give free previews all the time?

  13. Hey Nina, you’re full of crap or your DVR needs to be changed. EVERYTIME they have a free preview you can record. You can’t record UNTIL THE PREVIEW STARTS. IF YOU TRY TO SET UP RECORDING BEFORE THE PREVIEW STARTS IT SAYS YOU CANT RECORD CHANNELS NOT SUBSCRIBED TO. I bet that’s exactly what you tried to do. You probably tried to set up recordings before the preview started. I have uverse and have recorded several movies already and watched them. I will keep them on my DVR and watch them past the preview as well as they will always be accessible.

  14. I might be missing something, but I am a Comcast-Xfinity customer and I did not get a Cinemax “free preview” at all this weekend. And it’s already Sunday night (11:00pm, been checking since Friday night). Am I doing it wrong or what?

  15. I, too, didn’t get the free weekend HBO & MAX free weekend. It also happened another time but I called and they “turned it on” for me. This time I was away and set up the shows to record. Didn’t happen. Was not aware you had to set up the recordings during the free period. This was for Xfinity Comcast in San Francisco.
