Thanks for the info. Last time Starz had a Free preview, Directv let me know about it the day after it was over
Now come all the posts from people saying there's nothing to watch on them.
heh heh... Max usually does late at night
Will probably fill up the DVR with some movies at that time.
They do when it's a preview...... after a weekend preview you see pretty much all the stuff that is on the rest of the month....
I still have movies from the laast one and the Starz preview as well.
Amen! I second that! Also, this isn't Starz, so there should be some quality movies to watch too!
yh, and most will be first time posters lol
And unlike STARZ! the HBO/Cinemax previews don't generally include obnoxious "call this 800 number now to subscribe" interruptions during the movies. And HBO/Cinemax don't interrupt the closing credits of the movies either. Finally, they are the only premium services that don't put that irritating "bug" in the corner of the screen reminding you of what channel you are watching.
I just set up my OnDemand. When a free preview like this one hits, will I also have the ability to use HBO OnDemand? And if so, once the preview is over, do my OnDemand downloads "expire" immediately?
What's the best way to search for movies on during this free preview?
I usually highlight the channel name in the guide and press INFO. That will give you a guide of up to 14 days for just that channel. Since the preview is only for 3-4 days, it doesn't long to scroll through the list and select some movies to record.
I could be wrong, but if I remember right during one of these 'free weekends' I was NOT able to download DoD selections from those 'free preview' channels. However, if you are able to, they should not automatically expire when the preview is over. Anything you've downloaded during that time should remain until you delete it, or it is deleted to allow for other recordings if your HD is full.
You remember correctly. DoD were not available for a given premium channel last time. I don't expect it to be any difrerent this time.
HBO on Demand and Cinemax on Demand don't exist on D* anyway, so it's a moot point for this free preview.
Wow! What a tryout of two channels (and 2 duplicates!)! I imagine everyone will be dying to switch from their current provider who by now has more hbo/cinemax channels, even if the provider is a local cableco run by billy joe in his farm!
DoD content has an automatic deletion date. So it's not like regular content that you can keep forever.
People who don't have DirecTV won't really know of the free preview or watch it. I understand your post was just a complaint about the amount of channels but you should have done something like "Wow people can see how many less channels HBO/Max are then they had anywhere else". That would have been more to the point.
