    I just received my bill from Directv and a notice was in it stating HBO and Cinemax free preview was coming up May 8th-12. I didn't see a post here yet for this, so I thought I'd let you know.

    They may indeed be having another free preview, but those dates seem wrong?? May 19-22 is Tuesday to Friday?? Doesn't seem right.......

    HBO






    HBO having a free preview? How often does this happen? Does the King feel the after shocks of the Sopranos?

    Maybe or maybe they are just being kind! :)

    I think people are just not paying for movie channels (HBO) as much as before. They rather pay something else with it.

    Matter of taste (or lack thereof), but "Flight of the Conchords" is hilarious.

    The first season is over now, but Eastbound & Down was really funny.
