Fashion TV on MTS channel 40?

Fashion TV is now on MTS ch 40 for some reason. Its still listed on ch 293. Maybe its a free preview but those are always on ch 30. So anyone know anything?

I think MTS uses the channels in the 30s and 40s for extra free previews, especially when they have more than one at a time.

Since it's the end of February, I suspect the preview starts March 1. MTS may take a few extra days to update its web page. I think even with the regular previews on channel 30 it takes them a day or 2 after the start of the month.

MTS updated their web page.

Setanta Sports is on free preview for March on channel 30.

Fashion TV is on free preview for March on channel 40.

I think these 2 channels are running free previews with all participating providers.

I think I saw a post a while ago that Shaw is doing it as well. I didn't pay a lot of attention since it isn't a channel I would watch. Usually if a channel is doing a preview on one provider, chances are pretty good that other providers have it as well. Conversely if you see a post here that another provider is offering a preview on a channel you want to see, check if MTS has it as well.

I think the channel controls the preview since they use it as a marketing tool. They have to agree to waive their licensing fee for the non-subscribers. Chances are they would have a national preview or at least one of the large BDUs.
