Is Sundance on free preview? I seem to be getting it now and I never had it before (in Vancouver on 133).

Showcase went on preview before Christmas. Shaw Direct says their preview ends Jan. 7, so Shaw Cable is probably the same. That's why I didn't mention it in my last post.

Sasktel has the Fight Network on preview Jan 1 - Mar 31, so Shaw may be the same.

I'm getting The Fight Network here in Winnipeg right now and it's not part of my package so i am assuming Shaw has it on free preview right now.

Does anyone have a list of exactly what channels are on free preview right now?

Many thanks Shaw Champ for the heads up on free previews for Feb. I was just about to subscribe to H2 so this will give me a month to check things out. Now that the current History Channel is no longer showing any programming remotely connected to History I was hoping for some alternative. History Canada needs to change their name to properly reflect their content. I would suggest the Pawn Show Channel as that is the only thing they ever show these days. Travel and Escape is always a nice channel to watch and they seem to offer free preview quite often.

Here're some free-preview from Shaw's webpage:

Teletoon is on free preview until April 3 (nope, not today in my box)

Teletoon Retro is free on free preview until April 3 (Are you talking about the English or the French one? The English one is already on the Basic Tires no matter your plan is the grandfathered digital TV plan or the resent Personal TV plan. And nope, not today in my box on Teletoon Retro French)

VRAK.TV is on free preview until March 15(Nope, this channel is not avaliable in Vancouver.)

Yoopa is on free preview until March 15(yeah, this is now watchable)

One more free-preview news from Shaw's website:
Slice: free until March 31.(Yeah, this is now watchable for me.)

P.S. The free preview of Teletoon notice is removed, and it's still unclear if the free preview of teletoon retro is only for the English version -- which is now on the basic tier of both digital TV and Personal Plan (at least in Vancouver)-- or is it also free for the French Version, but right now, the French Version of Teletoon Retro is still unwatchable for me.

Not sure what's up with Teletoon Retro as I've received it for the past 5 years just by subscribing to (old package) digital basic. From what I understood at the time it was one of the channels you automatically received by switching from analog cable (no cable box required) to digital cable. So, me too, I am confused about it's free preview. Unless they are taking it away after that.
