Space issued a Press Release highlighting the nationwide freeview available now until Wednesday, Oct. 24:
Quote:
The freeview is available through participating television service providers across the country, including Bell, Bell Aliant, Cogeco, Eastlink, Bell MTS, Rogers, Sasktel, Shaw, Shaw Direct, Telus, and Videotron, and others. The first episode of the highly anticipated new season of DOCTOR WHO will also be available on demand via set-top-box for all for Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw, and Eastlink subscribers from October 8 to November 7. Space’s robust library of genre programming, available on demand via set-top box, online at Space.ca, and via the Space GO app, can be sampled by non-subscribers during the freeview period with participating TV providers.
It's funny that Space thinks that the freeview applies to Shaw, but Shaw doesn't.

Interesting observation...

Has anyone ever noticed how Bell Media's channel are never for a full month? So if I wanted to "unsub" to their channels for 30 days and choose another channel since they are in free preview, I'll be without the channel for a few days - like they are trying to discourage you from doing that.

That's B(H)ell for you.......

Cogeco - Mix 40 with TiVo T6 DVR & 2 TiVo Minis, UltraFibre 360; Rogers - LG G7 ThinQ; Koodo - Wireless Home Phone

History has been running promos about their preview and ABC Spark has a promo video on their web site. That confirms that the previews are national and should be available on most providers.

"For the entire month of February, you can watch the documentary Channel for free through your cable provider," confirming that it is a national preview. Bell, Rogers and Shaw all say the preview runs from January 31 until March 5. Rogers has documentary Channel On Demand on preview, so others may as well.

Fairchild Television and Talentvision are on preview for February on Bell, Rogers and Shaw.

CGTN is available on Rogers until February 17 and on Bell Fibe until February 28.
