    Sample the XTRA package for FREE August 26–September 1.

    August 21, 2013

    "Great news for DIRECTV customers who subscribe to the CHOICE package or lower. From Monday, August 26, to Monday, September 1, you can experience all of the 205+ channels available with the XTRA package for FREE. Enjoy popular channels including as NBC Sports Network (Ch. 220), Ovation (Ch. 274), DIY (Ch. 230), NatGeo Wild (Ch. 283), HUB (Ch. 294), and many more.

    If you like what you see, you can easily upgrade to XTRA and start enjoying all of these channels as part of your regular channel lineup."


    I have Mas Ultra and I have been missing a few channels that I like Foxnews,TVland and Bet.So this is my chance to check it out.

    I might consider getting the Xtra and adding Espanol on top of it when things get better but for the time being Mas Ultra is a great value for me at the moment.

    Important to note that VOD would not work (for the "extra" channels) during free previews.

    Well its the 26th and I haven't seen the Xtra pack channels go live yet.

    Is there a normal time set when they do these freebie things?

    Some of these channels are taking forever to light up.

    Like Foxnews,BET and Tvland, most in the Xtra pack have lit up but these few.

    I tried a rehit and still not seeing many of the supposed free preview channels.

    I asked directvservice on twitter got no straight answer.

    I have Spanish package and starting today I am suddenly seeing


    258 FXM

    307 WGN

    326 GAC

    359 FBN




    I am still not seeing these channels just getting x721 message



    235 style


    253 LMN

    264 BBC

    262 soap


    279 OWN

    289 disJR

    327 CMT

    329 BET


    355 CNBC

    358 AJAM

    360 FOXNEWS

    Probably some others too that are missing. Something is not coded right with this half hearted XTRA free preview.

    RMichals,

    I have Spanish package as well I'am missing all those stations you posted.

    I guess this freeview is not for the Mas' crowd.
