I did a comparison on the weekend and it's almost every Canadian and U.S. specialty channel in the Good and Better packages, except TSN and Sportsnet. It looks like Bell is giving everyone a taste of what they're missing in the hope that they will sign up for one of those packages.

Bell still hasn't updated their web page for a couple of months. I came across this official announcement a couple of days ago when I was Googling for something else.

ONE is currently on FREE PREVIEW for Bell and Bell Fibe customers through Jan. 31, 2019. (Link)

Here are a couple of other national previews that were announced by the channel and should be on Fibe TV. You can check Bell satellite's thread for other possible previews.

Hollywood Suite Nationwide Free Preview Available From December 1 to January 5
HIFI will offer a national eight-week free preview beginning Monday, November 5
History – December 1 to January 31
ABC Spark - December 14 to January 31

Bell sucks at getting the inf out, I go to Shaw to find out what the previews are because the're great for keeping it updated and these previews are initiated by the suppliers. There is usually a one to three days difference in the start and stop dates but at least it gives you a clue on when and where to look which is way more than you'll ever get from Bell.
