Just got my June Entertainment Guide email. Looks like this runs June 13th-15th.

I know I'll be taking advantage of it. :D

You meant that the On-Demand channels for HBO, Showtime, Starz & Cinemax won't be active during the Freeview, right? Cause you don't have to have Premier to access DoD.

Correct.. Channels that you don't subscribe to won't allow On Demand access.

Still have to see it. My expectations of sequels are always low, so I usually am not too dissappointed.
