It looks like BELL Satellite TV didn't get the memo about the free preview of Viceland being extended, as it has left my boxes.

If Life is a Highway,...then why is there no end to this dirtroad?

Interesting that we're getting free previews from the old specialty channels now. First Comedy, now Discovery is going to have one. Those are channels that anyone with more than basic cable would've had years back, so a free preview would never have been necessary. And of course, with mandatory pick and pay incoming, it may become more of a factor.

I'm not complaining, there are many channels that was never in free preview since I got digital cable. it make a nice change from having the same 4-5 free previews we always get. I think all channels deserve a chance to have a free preview, free previews are a good way to get subscription...

This might be interesting for those who don't get a CW channel in HD when Supergirl premieres on Monday, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
