DISH Network has been providing free previews for various channels they offer for a while now. Each month they have been offering subscribers different channels to sample. If memory serves me correctly, I believe DISH Network has become a lot more generous with their free previews recently.
Going back a bit, it seems to me that free previews were mostly offered for just a single weekend. It was common for them to offer a free preview weekend of HBO or Cinemax channels for a weekend. Oftentimes these previews would coincide with a long holiday weekend.
With DISH Network now offering much more generous free preview periods, it’s a great opportunity for subscribers to check out all the programming on a channel that is not included in their programming package.
December brings the following free preview channels to DISH Network subscribers.
GMC: December 2nd through January 3rd. Channel 188.
GAC: December 2nd through January 3rd. Channel 167.
Hallmark: December 2nd through January 3rd. Channel 187.
Pixl: December 2nd through January 3rd. Channel 388.
Style: December 2nd through January 3rd. Channel 115.
NHL: December 29th through January 2nd. Channel 403.
Some channels may only be available in HD and will require an HD-capable receiver or DVR in order to watch.
