Assuming this page remains current (it indicates the free preview ended on December 2, 2013 which it did not), Hollywood Suite is $5.01 per month, subject to undisclosed conditions:

(You have to scroll down the page about a third of the way to find the relevant details.)

And this is another $5 add on they can keep it.

Well, Shaw has sunk to a new low. Gotta love their incentives offered to try out channels. The lone free-view for February (according to the website) is FX Canada. Nice one, Shaw.

Probably because it's summer, people are not watching TV as much. Better to have a free preview when people are stuck inside or are thinking about watching TV.

I noticed that Shaw Direct's free preview page has been totally blanked out for the last few months.

Investigation Discovery and Discovery Science are National Free Previews from July 21 to August 21.

Food Network HD showed up in my lineup the other day (I have blocked channels I don't subscribe to).
I'm assuming this is a free preview - anyone know or how long?

TSN new channels 3-5 are on free preview, along with the older 1 and 2.
BTW I┤m getting all of them except for TSN 2, when I tune in I still get the "You need to subscribe" message on the screen.
Wonder why is that ?

Enjoy TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 on free preview in both SD and HD starting August 25, 2014

DJSAT, TSN2 isn't on free preview. Did you subscribe to a package containing TSN2?

Thanks for the feedback Dr Dave.

I was confused becasue looking at SD website under offers I saw the caption TSN 1-5, and the logo TSN 12345 on the left, so I assumed 2 was part of the free preview.

But no I┤m not currently subscribed to TSN 2, I have the essentials package, TSN 2 is not included.

Just confirmed with Shaw Direct twitter - NFL Sunday Ticket is on Free Preview for Week 1 (Sunday Sept 7). It was showing as "free preview" in guide, so asked just to make sure.

ENJOY!
