Current Free Previews

Grasshopper

Since the people in charge of updating the " News and Free Previews " can't be trusted to update the page in time ( or sometimes at all ) I guess I can do my best to keep SHAW users updated with any Free Preview available.

The Comedy Network ( available on a national free preview from June 25th to July 29th )

Grasshopper

So the Sportsman Channel has 5 days left on its Free Preview period and it's still not listed on the " News and Free Previews " page. 🤣 Honestly - the people in charge of updating that page should be fired immediately. Since they probably won't show up on time ( or at all ) here is what I have so far for upcoming Free Previews:

NHL Centre Ice ( September 17th to October 8th ) Nationwide Free Preview
Food Network ( October 1st to October 31st ) Nationwide Free Preview
Family ( October 1st to October 31st ) SHAW and Rogers
Family Jr. ( October 1st to October 31st ) SHAW and Rogers
CHRGD ( October 1st to October 31st ) SHAW and Rogers
YTV ( October 1st to October 17th ) Nationwide Free Preview
Discovery ( October 10th to November 7th ) Nationwide Free Preview

Adult Swim ( November 1st to November 30th ) Nationwide Free Preview

Wow!  Thank you for this, Grasshopper.  I, too have noticed their appalling record at keeping the Free previews page up-to-date,  If you're lucky, it is updated partway through the preview month.  One would think they would want to keep people in the loop, to potentially gain new subscribers (kind of the point of free previews, right??).  Better yet, how about an email list to actively let people know of upcoming previews, but then again, they can't even update a webpage!

No problem Voyager - glad to help. And I totally agree - the suits over at SHAW should put some new people in charge of the " News and Free Previews " page as they are doing an embarrassing job of keeping it up to date. By the way it's Bob - not Grasshopper. That's one of the levels that SHAW has designated for people who post here. All I know is every time I see it I think of David Carradine in the old " Kung Fu " tv show. 😃

Grasshopper

It's an early Christmas miracle - they actually updated the " News and Free Previews " page. Just a few quick notes:

- a few other sites list the free previews for Family, Family Jr. Family CHRGD, YTV and W Network as ending on November 17th so either SHAW has listed the wrong dates or they are ending the free preview early.

- one free preview they missed was the Heart and Home channel which Super Channel posted on their Face Book page:
