"SEcret" Preview?
Just noticed all the free preview Baseball channels that have just been added. I noticed them because they appeared in my customized Guide, even though they won't be carrying anything until March 28. So I can look forward to scrolling through the master Guide on April 11 to remove these channels :(

But my other concern is that I also discovered seven other channels (333, 145/1145, 388, 389, 404, 419) that were in the master Guide, but not in my subscription packages and hence not in my customized Guide. They have been in free preview, apparently, since March 1. AND NO ONE TOLD ME!

Have these channels in fact been available in preview from March 1?

How does Bell Fibe transmit info on free previews to their customers?

Preview Info

I really hate that. Once you customize your channel guide and remove all the channels you are not subscribed to, well if ever one of those channels are in free preview there is no way of knowing..unless you check the website. Ridiculous!

Well, now there's Channel 1310...

Hey John,
Thanks for the Info, I just checked out channel 1310 and it is awesome, we finally have a channel that gives us information on upcoming movies, previews, and promotions, I like it... no more guessing what is happening on Fibe TV. just tune to 1310 and the latest information is on there...Thanks again

To Sunnyside - you can hit the Menu button, then 'Whats New', then 'Channels' and there is a listing each month of what is on free preview. :)

I guess that's better than nothing. But you still have to manually go to the customization and check the channels to be able to watch them..and then you have to return to uncheck them once the preview is over. Would make it so easier if the free previews channels would just automatically appear.

For me this is mainly my only complaint with Bell Fibe, the fact of having to go to the customization guide every time I need to block or unblock a channel. This may not be an issue for some people but it drives me crazy. I hate the fact of having to scroll down 400 or 500 channels just to check or uncheck a box. For example if channel 1601 is free preview, I have to scroll down to 1601 to check it and then again to uncheck it. I guess what I really hate is the fact that the scroll down is so slow and takes forever. I don't know for me wasting 4-5 minutes to uncheck a box is an eternity. I really think they should have the option of block/unblocking or check/uncheck a channel when I am watching the channel live.

When you press info when watching a channel you already have the option to record it or to add/remove subtitles, why not just add the option to block it or to remove it from your channel list right then and there instead of always having to go through the customization guide (which takes forever). Anyways just my two cents!

Teletoon (554) and Teletoon West (555) are available for Free preview from August 15 to September 30

Family guy at 9:30... I might watch that

Hertz 2012-10-01 04:42 PM

The list of channel in Free preview for October is out:

AMC! Gee, I'm already paying for it!!!

John769 2012-10-02 02:25 PM

Free, But not subscribed?
The web-page says that Investigation Discovery, both SD and HD are in free preview this month. I'm seeing the SD feed, but all I get on 1528 is "You are not currently subscribed to this channel"

Anyone else locked out of the HD feed?

Watching that channel LS Times but they got the on screen guide wrong.

The guide is displaying events that was shown on the channel 3 hours prior.

EDIT actually is this a new channel?

Hertz 2012-10-04 11:42 AM

Same thing for me John, i only have the SD feed.

As for the Chinese channel, I also noticed that the schedule was incorrect. I don't know if it's a new channel, but i feel like it's the most interesting one in the free preview... and I don't even speak Chinese! (And I already subscribe to AMC)

Hertz 2012-11-30 07:43 PM
