Since the free preview has started I tried to start downloading The Tudors from vod for my wife to watch. When I tried to dl the first one I got a message saying I had to sub to the channel to get it.

Shouldn't I be able to dl the shows? Don't we have all benefits of the total choice package?

Showtime Had a Free VOD pre-view just before nurse jackie Started--It showed up in my D* guide.

I think the Premier Channels are Free -preview through this weekend, I don't know if they open the VOD for that or not? I have that package so I have access to the VOD channels anytime.

Which makes perfect sense, since VOD may have entire seasons of shows that won't be on during the preview, its only right that non-subs cant download entire seasons. It would be a nightmare to somehow make available just the episodes of the shows that will be on during the free preview period.
