Showtime Networks Free Preview Weekend - January 10-13, 2013

YMMV on your cable carrier, I suppose, but Showtime is offering a free preview all weekend long. Their schedule is located here.

Some notable programs include;

The Iron Lady
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part I
Shameless - Season Premiere
House of Lies - Season Premiere
Californication - Season Premiere

I'll be using it as a chance to catch the latest seasons of Dexter and Episodes On Demand.

Looking forward to this to watch Season 2 of Homeland on Demand. Fiancee and I burned through them on Netflix (and then AppleTV when we were snowed in and the next disc hadn't shown up yet).

Odd I haven't checked the actual Channel but I have Comcast and Showtime On Demand is working just fine. Watched the first 5 episodes of Homeland Season 2 last night with zero problems.

I had the same issue with DTV/Cinemax, which is also currently in a free preview. Luckily what I want to record is showing "live" later tonight anyway.

For DirecTV, they do have a "free" Showtime on Demand channel. But they're pissing me off. Shows are only good until today, and they are airing the first 2 episodes of Homeland S2, then the free on demand starts with episode 7.
