Space issued a Press Release highlighting the nationwide freeview available now until Wednesday, Oct. 24:
The freeview is available through participating television service providers across the country, including Bell, Bell Aliant, Cogeco, Eastlink, Bell MTS, Rogers, Sasktel, Shaw, Shaw Direct, Telus, and Videotron, and others. The first episode of the highly anticipated new season of DOCTOR WHO will also be available on demand via set-top-box for all for Bell, Rogers, Telus, Shaw, and Eastlink subscribers from October 8 to November 7. Space’s robust library of genre programming, available on demand via set-top box, online at Space.ca, and via the Space GO app, can be sampled by non-subscribers during the freeview period with participating TV providers.
It's funny that Space thinks that the freeview applies to Shaw, but Shaw doesn't. :)

Interesting observation...

Has anyone ever noticed how Bell Media's channel are never for a full month? So if I wanted to "unsub" to their channels for 30 days and choose another channel since they are in free preview, I'll be without the channel for a few days - like they are trying to discourage you from doing that.

That's B(H)ell for you.......:devil
