    I know that the cable companies have a free preview for NHLCI running thru 10/15(see link below). Has anyone heard if D* will be offering this free preview?

    They did for baseball, just check when the season starts, they didn't advertise it for MLB E I until like a day or two before the preview, so once again that's poor marketing by DTV

    Thanks, I was on cable last year and they do a better job of letting you know.

    I had cable last year to, I have been learning things as I go along also, but you can pretty much go by the cable schedule for the leagues that are offered by all cable/satillite providers. I was upset with the fact that Sunday Ticket didn't have a free preview.

    Week 1 was a free preview for both ST and Superfan.

    Incorrect. Sunday Ticket itself never has a free preview. Superfan however has a free preview in week 1, but you already have to be a Sunday Ticket subscriber.

    NHL Network has been coming in the last couple of days so I assume that even though there haven't been any games yet, that the free preview has technically begun. (I have Total Choice, not Choice Xtra which is where NHLN usually is.)

    I usually get emails when there are free previews. I have my account flagged online to send me emails on such things.

    I was scheduling some games to record and have confirmed that D* will have a free preview of NHLCI thru 10/15. I pulled up a game in the guide and pressed Info and it has a blurb about the free preview.
