S & L should be coming through for all customers. I'll check with Vancouver on it. Also as it stands now Dusk will not be on a free preview this month. Normally in the past for October it has been but there were some issues getting it confirmed. Once we hear if it does go on a free preview we will post it here.

Movie Central Free Preview?

I was chatting on Shaw about a different matter and the rep suggested Movie Central and its SOD for free preview for 3 months. Is there any truth to that?

If you haven`t subbed to Movie Central in the past 90 days, you can get it free for 3 months . You have to phone them to get it and you have to phone them to cancel when your 3 months is up or you will be billed for the next month. They will also do this for Super Channel.

Thanks madbob for the clarification. Perhaps I should try MC for 3 months followed by SC for another 3 months? But then, I took a quick look at the movies/series offered and there aren't many appealing ones so perhaps I'll just go both at the same time for the holiday season.

According to moviecentral.ca you have to sign up for the 90 day preview before Nov 30. I'm not sure about Super Channel.

CHrisCHu, that's what a PVR is for! We had a free preview for the past couple of months and have recorded a LOT of movies for post-preview watching. The beauty is they'll often show the same movies over and over -- you can set the PVR for the overnight showings so it doesn't interfere with any of your regular recordings.

Yeah, I know, but my DVR schdule is pretty busy without free previews already. Last time we had free previews, I really had to juggle the schedule to get the best out of the free previews.:)

3-month free HBO/MC/SC

I called in to sign up for the 3-month free MovieCentral (incl HBO). CSR said I could get Super Channel as well so I did. MCHD seems to have better movies than SCHD1/2. Since I bought the DCX now to replace my defective rental Pace box, I figure to keep the Pace for perhaps another month for the extra busy recording schedule (Pace box works fine as long as I keep as few recordings as possible).
