I cancelled Blockbuster but I get channel 292. Is normal?


All EPIX channels should be in free preview thru 1/16/13. EPIX Drive In is also in AT250.

I agree with DEC. We are paying for the "free"previews somewhere along the line so if they are supposed to begin at a certain time, they should begin at that time.

I probably wouldn't notice if they began on time until after work, but I could see someone being annoyed if they couldn't see a program because the preview didn't start on time.

Defining the time seems to be the question. The thread starter had an expectation that was not met but when did DISH say the preview would start?

I don't remember if Dish ever stated any start time for this free preview, In the past, most previews for premiums started mid afternoon, so 4 -5 pm seemed to fit this. I agree with James, DEC expected the preview at midnight and was upset when it didn't.

As long as it appeared before 23:59 that night, it was not 'late' and there was no reason for anyone who wasn't paying for it to be upset.

Exactly, the OP should be ashamed beyond belief at his false entitlement.:nono:

Of course we also pay somewhere along the line for someone getting antsy and contacting support 5 times in one morning. (5 times as of post #3, looks like there might have been even more after that.)
