For the free preview weekend.

 

Saw a couple of good movies.

 

So, anyone know, who has more free preview weekends?

 

When I had direct, it didn't seem like they had as many as Dish.

 

Am I wrong?

Thanks, I know this, but, I have the 250 package, so I already get a lot of what they offer. I meant the premiums in particular. I should have been more specific.

Every provider gets the same free previews with premiums.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

DISH activated the preview on Sept 5th (3:56pm) and ended it on Sept 10th (4:11am).
(Four days, Sept 6th to 9th.)

I really appreciate the free premium channel selections Dish gives us.  I realize that it's aimed at getting subs interested enough to subscribe to those channels and I imagine it works well enough. It's really pretty good marketing stratagy.
