Yeah, I saw that it has a separate preview with different dates and providers. The decoupling of the previews just seemed odd until I heard about the re-brand.

I think that Eastlink should be added to the list of providers participating in the free preview listed in post #13. I don't know yet if they have added Oasis to the preview yet, since it wasn't in free preview last time I checked. I haven't checked since Dec. 15th, though.

Hi David,

The purpose of this thread is to let people know that there are national previews in case their provider doesn't notify them. The reason for listing providers where there wasn't a press release by the channel is to confirm that it may be a national preview, so people can check their own provider if they are interested in the channel. The list isn't meant to be all-inclusive.

Each provider forum has a free preview thread where people can post previews for that provider, which may include national previews or sometimes previews that are only offered by that provider.

I'll add a note to post 13.

Thanks, Dr. Dave.

Btw, I just checked Oasis, and it has now been added to the free preview.

NHL Centre Ice should be on free preview on most providers until January 8. I've seen announcements from Shaw and Telus.

Tbaytel too.

Tbaytel is somehow not showing the CI Free Preview right now.

Tbaytel has fixed the problem and is now showing CI.
