Showtime Free Preview - March 25-28...
Posted 26 March 2010 - 08:55 AM
My top 5 wishlist: 1) Free MRV HR to HR 2) Fix Channels I Receive so that it is accurate 3) > 50 SeriesLink 4) Usage of both internal and external drives concurrently 5) Support for other video providers as DoD (i.e. Hulu, CBS)

I appreciate the free previews because I do usually find a couple of shows to record and am reminded why I am not subscribed.
... this is exactly my thought. I just have the old Total Choice Plus w/ locals + HD + DVR. Every time I see one of these free previews I scan through the 72 hours of guide data and rarely find even *ONE* thing to watch. Then I spend a few minutes wondering why people waste money on this garbage. Only thing I saw that I even bothered recording was "Witless Protection" and I hit the ol' Delete key on that after about 5 minutes. Boy that was a stupid movie.

They have a clip onDemand promoting the free preview but you need to subscribe to the channel to see it. it is either a bad joke or something wrong with their system.
I had this exact problem last time they had a free preview. I wanted to watch ONE movie that was only on the OnDemand version of the channel and was told that the OnDemands are not included in the free previews. Lame.

Well, the good news is that Showtime often does a good job of respecting OAR. While they may not always offer topnotch films...at least they don't butcher and mutilate them as often as HBO, Starz, and Cinemax.
