Just a reminder for those of you that can't wait till Sunday to watch the season premieres of Shameless, House of Lies and Episodes on Friday 1/9, DirecTV will air them all beginning at 10PM ET/PT on the Audience Network (channel 239). Early premieres are now available from Showtime On Demand and Showtime Anytime in addition. Shameless S5|E1 10PM ET/PT House of Lies S4|E1 11PM ET/PT Episodes S4|E1 11:30PM ET/PT Also, according to the content rating in the guide data these should be the uncut versions as you would see them air on Showtime. They did this for the series premier of The Affair as well, and it was the uncut TV-MA version that aired (on Audience) as you would see it on Showtime. Disclaimer: if on screen digital graphics are an issue for you then you may wish to wait until Sunday's airings on Showtime, because as I recall with The Affair there was an occasional promotional banner in the bottom left corner trying to market subscribers for Showtime on DirecTV. Of course you will have the Audience logo in the bottom right corner as well. A fair trade off though to see them early. Showtime now only has the digital on screen logo on the top/bottom of the hour for about one minute or the beginning of a new program on the primary East/West channels, Showcase and SHO2 (both SD/HD versions). The remaining multiplex channels have the digital on screen logos all the time for the most part.
