    Thank you, for that information, the future is now!

    Thank you, as well, to everyone who has ever posted information about free previews of certain programming.

    figured out why we are getting a free week. they are going to play a season a day, starting with season 1 on Monday, until the premier. you will be able to binge watch The Game of Thrones this whole week before getting ready for this new and last season.

    At least their Game Of Thrones marathon won't interrupt my weekly dose of Oliver-J 500mg.

    Oddly, I can view 501 & 505, but cannot record them. The other channels are fine, and are included in "channels I get".

    I have the same problem, I can watch 501 and 505 but it won't let me record them, says I need a subscription. I just had my account switched to ATT effective today so that may be why.

    Same here; I have HBO since I have the ATT unlimited data plan on my phones. 515 is watchable but not recordable.

    Just for S&Gs, try setting a manual recording and see if that'll work.

    It has worked for me in the past for other freeview channels when conventional recording wasn't allowed.

    (I'm already subscribed, so I can't try it for HBO.)

    Glad I started randomly checking for free previews since Mediacom is so bad about announcing them. They had free previews for Starz/Encore over the weekend, and started a presumably week long free preview of HBO/Cinemax today. My Tivo is going to be full by next Sunday night, I'll have enough movies recorded for the whole summer lol!

    I can watch 515 but I get a banner at the bottom that says...Sorry this purchase exceeds the spending limit($10.00) you set. Press select or Unlock Now to override. The other Cinemax channels don't show that. I doubt 515 is an On Demand or pay channel.

    are they trying to push button to channels but coding it as an ppv event?

    I tried to setup a recording of a movie on HBOE and got the you must be subscribed to the channel to do it message. However, it let me setup the recording on the HBOW version of the channel.
