Free Preview Begins: April 20, 2018 (Friday)
Free Preview Ends: April 23, 2018 (Monday)

There’s a free preview of HBO and Cinemax coming up this weekend, April 20-23 to promote the premiere of the second season of Westworld on HBO. Here’s who we know are participating:

Please let me know in the comments below if your provider is taking part as well so I can get it added to the list. Thank you!



  1. Thanks for announcing this

    1. I cant get this I have FIOS, Thank you very much

  2. Mediacom is included

  3. You can add ATT Uverse to the list, they announced it a couple of days ago via their message board on their service (the app itself has yet to confirm, but it almost always runs behind anyway). Thanks as always for the updates!

  4. Spectrum? .????

    1. Spectrum is a wash!!! They love your money but doesn’t offer anything FREE!!!

  5. Anyone knows if the free previews are available in Hulu Live?

  6. RCN also has a free preview this weekend!

  7. Cox is also involved

    1. i cannot watch the stations only on demand movies

    2. No, it isn’t showing on my Cox at all, so maybe only certain locations?

  8. Add Time Warner/Spectrum please

  9. Still says I have to buy the pack to get them. No free preview here.

  10. No Verizon Fios? Seems like they never participate any more!

    1. Looks like they ALWAYS do! Just found this today:

      Free View lets you run the show.

      With so many award-winning premium channels, it’s tough to decide. That’s why we invite Fios TV customers to enjoy a free preview of HBO®, SHOWTIME®, Cinemax®, STARZ® and EPIX® for 48 hours each, virtually whenever and wherever you choose. You can preview several at once or watch one at a time over a 12-month period. Either way, we’ll bet you won’t want to wait.

  11. What about Verizon FiOS?

  12. Cox rarely has these Free Preview weekends. Darn.

  13. Just checked. I have Cox and it isn’t free.

    1. They probably left it up to the local areas :( Thanks for letting us know.

  14. Muscatine Power & Water

  15. Found these when I was searching Twitter for updates on another provider –

    Sling has the free preview –
    Cincinnati Bell has it –
    Clear Creek Communications –

    MCTV (which apparently serves part of Ohio) has it too –

  16. SECV Service Electric Cablevision in Pa also participating.

  17. I just tried with Spectrum and was unable to access any free preview. I’m in New York State. Does anyone know if the free preview is limited to certain areas and/or starts at a certain time? Thank you for your help.

    1. I’m in Alabama and have spectrum as well. No free preview for us either.

    2. I am in NY also and having the same problem. I wonder if it could be on a different channel and the normal HBO channels. Referring to Spectrum.

    3. I’m in Daytona Beach and we don’t have through Spectrum either

  18. Verizon Fios isn’t working

    1. Agreed, not on Verizon FiOS in NJ. Also not available on demand.

  24. Is it availabile in Wausau, Wisconsin on spectrum?

  26. Frontier Vantage is receiving it too.

  27. Cox cable in tucson rarely give these previews and never on HBO a new provider
