Yes, it is now available. Perhaps it didn't start on time because I checked on May 25. The regular SC channels were working, but OD wasn't. It is now. Thanks.

Dr.Dave Both Bell MTS and Shaw say on their web pages that the Super Channel preview expires June 6.

Comedy - June 25 - July 30 on Shaw Direct and Rogers.

57 Just as an FYI, I tried on Rogers (Ontario) and the OD is not available like it was the last time. It may have been a mistake last time because the previous few times I tried it was not available either...

Dr.Dave I found this on Super Channel's home page. Shaw and Rogers both said access to the On Demand Library is included in the preview.

May 24 to June 2 - Enjoy a FREE PREVIEW of all our channels with participating Canadian cable providers

Dr.Dave Shaw Cable's newsletter mentioned the Super Channel free preview from May 23 - June 6 (I double-checked and I don't know if they made a typo or if they plan a longer preview than everyone else), including limited time access to their extensive VOD library. Other providers may also include VOD access during the preview.

It's a short preview, but they have the past season of most series on VOD. You may also find some movies you like - the schedule for May and June is available on their site.

winterwolf There was no reason given on the post on Facebook, but I would guest it might be related to W channel's Hallmark countdown to summer.

Here is the post from Super Channel on Facebook:

I found how to copy links from the Facebook app...
