The free previews are supposed to be a marketing tool to get people to subscribe. But to me it's just the opposite. Checking out what is on HBO and Cinemax during their free preview just makes me all the more determined not to subscribe. Scanning through all of their channels hardly shows me anything that I'm interested in watching. And yes they have a lot of different channels, but last night I noticed that the same movie was playing on three different channels at the same time. What good is having those three channels if they are all showing the same thing? It's ridiculous.
Yes, I felt the same way. I subbed to both of them, about 5 months ago and there isn't enough new content, to warrant re-subbing with them. Now if they fell in the price range of Showtime and Starz, I might consider it. I often get those for about $7.99, when you sign up for 3 months.
