Telus is terrible about promoting free previews as always, but NHL Centre Ice and NBA League Pass are both in free preview right now. NHL is January 18, 2017 - January 25, 2017 on others, so I assume it's the same here. I can't find any specific dates for NBA League Pass.

Bell has the following dates:

NBA League Pass until January 22
NHL Centre Ice until January 24

I wouldn't use Shaw's dates, since they always add one extra day to the end of the official preview, but you only get a couple of hours of that extra day because they shut it down around 2 a.m.

The Telus web site used to be pretty timely, but they seem to have forgotten about it in the last few months. That's where I copied my prior posts.

They even have a channel dedicated to promoting current free previews and that hasn't been updated. All the current ones on there have expired.

I now have 845 BC1 channel if you want more local news, which I didn't pay for so must be on free preview (probably for the Corona Virus pandemic).

I see that I am now getting 821 BBC World news, so I guess it is on free preview, but I don't know for how long. It seemed to start around the same time Boris Johnson went into hospital with the corona virus.
