The All Star game is the 16th.  The preview us always at the beginning of the season and right after the All Star game when the price drops.  Its a ploy to get new customers hooked at the beginning and middle of the season.  Either way its nice for anyone not subscriibing to it already.

Yes they did (6/14-6/17); Strike Back season 4 premiere is August 9 so that is probably why they are having another free preview.

What on earth is DOG TV?  A channel your dog is supposed to watch if he can figure out the remote?

So I guess you don't get the EI free preview with the Entertainment package?

 

I understand that I wouldn't get some of the sports channel. But a "free preview" should be truly free.

I like the HDNET free previews.  And the Hockey Channel ones were good too.

 

Can't wait for Strike Back!

They have a special remote for dog. Works something like the clapper when the dog barks.

I guess I should have looked for more than just my local team (CIN) and the Mix channel. I suppose Mix is blacked out because I might see the Reds.

 

I downgraded to Entertainment before going on vacation. I thought I'd get to save a little money by not upgrading again for a week if I could watch the Reds on the Mix channel. Guess not.

 

At least I see that I'm getting MLB Network again. I assume that's just because of the EI free preview.

I won't subscribe to DogTV, but I must admit that I can't wait to see how my 3 dogs react to it during the free preview.

In checking my programming at DTV's site - it says there is a 3 month free trial of HDNet right now.
