This thread is for discussion of MTS Free Previews throughout 2012.

MTS has a free preview on channel 30 every month. If they have more than one preview, they usually start at channel 40. I believe the previews have to be co-ordinated with the channel owner to waive subscription fees. Therefore, any previews that are publicized by other BDUs may be available on MTS as well.

The MTS web site lists the free previews and their effective dates.

This thread replaces MTS TV Free Previews 2011.

Super Channel Promo - First 3 months free

Subscribe to Super Channel and get the first three months free. After the promotional period pay only $16.99/month. Offers: Conditions apply. Subject to change without notice. First three months free offer ends May 31, 2012. If you choose not to keep Super Channel after the three month promotional period, call MTS at 204-225-5687 (204-CALLMTS) to cancel or service will continue at then current price. Super Channel cancellation requires 30 days notice.
Super Channel On Demand is also included.


Here's a link to the promo which also has an on-line form for ordering the promo. You cannot have had Super Channel within the last 30 days.


This isn't technically a preview, since you have to order it and cancel if you don't want to keep it. This looks very similar to the promo they had last year.

ABC Spark and FX Canada

Here's what I copied from the MTS web page:
ABC Spark – Channel 44 - Free Preview until October 2012

FX Canada – Channel 45 - Free Preview until October 2012
The preview dates seem odd. Here's what the FX Canada Facebook page says:
Free 2 month preview!
MTS: channel 43 in SD & channel 45 in HD

The Teletoon west feed has actually been changed to Cartoon Network Canada although MTS has not adjusted their name.
