Wow I can't believe how many channels are on free preview for the month of October. I have been with Bell Satellite Since October 31, 2003 and I have never seen this many Free Previews in one month.

When I saw "INFO" on all the channels I actually thought they were finally doing the channel re-mapping!

Sadly, no.

Great list of previews @cyclist44

Bell finally updated their list of previews on the web site and I noticed a few differences when I was comparing your list to my list for Fibe TV. Here is the list for satellite and the changes I noticed (I don't know which one is right.) This isn't meant as a criticism since I know you put a lot of work into it and I'm sure people appreciate it.

Free previews are a joint effort by both the TV provider and the channel owner, with the purpose of giving non-subscribers a sample of what they are missing in the hope that they will like it enough to subscribe to the channel.

National free previews like Showcase, W Network and BBC Earth are initiated by the channel owner and are often promoted by TV ads to encourage viewers to tune in to specific programs. Those previews are available at "participating television service providers" and occasionally some providers don't participate.

Other previews like the large group of channels on Bell from October 2 to October 31 are initiated by Bell as part of their responsibility under their contract with the channel owners to market and promote the channels. There are probably limitations in the contract as to how many times a channel can be on preview and will vary from one channel to the next.

In this case Bell is offering almost all the channels in the Good and Better packages (except TSN and Sportsnet) with the intention of convincing people who don't subscribe to one of those packages to do so.

With all these free previews for the month of October it might be good idea to cut your programming down to the bare bones allowed for one month.

Thanks for the list. Does anyone have any idea what time they kick in? I was hoping to watch something on the Love Nature channel but it's not on yet (10:20 a.m. EST). I thought it was at 6 a.m. but it seems not.
