Food Network Canada: November 1, 2016 - January 4, 2017.
National Geographic: November 1 - November 30, 2016.

Fight Network preview?

Flicking through channels this evening I noticed Fight Network (423/1423) was available for free, as well as the national free previews. No mention on fightnetwork.com.

Too bad Fibe doesn't have barker channels, like Bell satellite, to announce these previews, but I suppose that gripe belongs in another thread.

Bell Fibe has a preview page, but it doesn't seem to be up to date:
http://www.bell.ca/Fibe-TV/Whats-On
Scroll down to "Now on free preview" and click on "Channel details."

Hollywood Suite and Animal Planet are on national preview until early January, including Bell Satellite and Bell Aliant, so they should be on Bell Fibe in Ontario and Quebec. There are also a bunch of French channels December 9, 2016 – January 16, 2017.

BBC Earth should be on free preview, but I'm not on Fibe so I can't personally confirm that.

If the channel isn't showing up in the guide, check your channel customization.

Channel is showing up and says call to subscribe.
I chatted with Fibe support and they are useless in answering questions

omg who are these people and who trains them ?

A reboot has helped in some cases in the past - it forces the box to reacquire to guide info from the head-end.

ch 1662 BBC Earth is now on. I guess Fibe is a little slow adding the previews.

BTW I am getting Showcase ch 1616. Is it on free preview? I shouldn't have it on the "Good" package AFAIK.

W Network and Showcase are in Free Preview on Bell Satellite until Feb. 15, so the same should be true for Fibe TV. Bell has finally updated their web page, which strangely doesn't include BBC Earth, W Network and Showcase. The current previews listed are:

Makeful 640 SD Free preview: January 16, 2017 – March 19, 2017.
ABC Spark 1564 HD 564 SD Free preview: January 30, 2017 – February 28, 2017.
Discovery Velocity 1519 HD Free preview: January 10, 2017 – February 9, 2017.
