‘TDS TV’ FREE HBO Preview — DVR Recording Made Remain After The Preview.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This was my first ‘TDS TV‘ free PREVIEW and I wasn’t sure what to expect.

For a start, I wasn’t sure whether any HBO or CINEMAX recordings I made will remain when the preview ended (which was today).

So far, so good but I will feel more confident tomorrow.

I think it was when I had DISH. DVR recordings only worked provided you still had the channel. So, any recordings you made disappeared when the preview ended. They tried to get you to sign-up for that channel.

As far as I can the TDS TV preview ended today. The HBO and Cinemax channels no longer appear on the Guide.

But, the FEW recordings I made are still there — and they play.

So, hope this helps.

FREE HBO & Cinemax Preview On ‘TDS TV’ August 16 — 20, 2019.

by Anura Guruge


 


I wondered whether ‘TDS TV‘, like DISH and DirectTV, did such FREE preview weekends. And then I got an e-mail a few days ago.

I have had ‘TDS TV’, with considerable success and satisfaction, for one-week short of a year. This was the FIRST preview that I was aware of.

Starts tomorrow. HBO will be in 800 range. We might have to go find it off the Guide. I don’t know. My first time.

I will let you know. If you have ‘TDS TV’ enjoy. There are a few HBO movies I wouldn’t mind seeing. Not sure whether DVRing will work — after the Preview window ends.

DISH TV: Free HBO & Cinemax Right Now — Friday, July 21 To Monday, July 24, 2017.

Happened to find it serendipitously around 11:20pm on Thursday, July 21, when I, as I often did, checked the electronic program guide to see what interesting stuff was coming up on the ‘Smithsonian Channel’. I DVR a fair amount from the Smithsonian and watch it if there is no decent cricket to watch.

This might be of interest to some of you Amazon Prime members.

I am not that enthused right now. I get as many movies as I want, and more, through my two streaming devices.

So, just a heads up. It might definitely be worth it for some of you. Enjoy.

We watched all of “Indian Summers” Season 1 though we weren’t that impressed with it. It was OK — but it could have been so much better given the setting and material. BUT, we will still record and watch Season 2.

Churchill’s Secret” that precedes it looks to be real good.

From what I can see the Preview is on right now — Thursday, July 14, 2016, 8pm Eastern. I subscribe to HBO. So I have that all the time. But when I looked at the Online Electronic Guide around 8pm all the Cinemax channels were there.

I just found out when HBO left me a ‘preview teaser‘ on DVR.

So giving you a heads up.

To be honest nothing really that special this weekend!

Yes, I had had HBO for the last 4 months and Cinemax for 3 of those. So I have seen many of these movies (and I typically don’t watch the series). I now have HBO, on Dish, ‘for life’, for $10/month. So the preview doesn’t get me much. BUT, if you don’t have HBO or Cinemax get your fingers working and record some. Enjoy.

Here I got you the Primetime schedule. Just click to ENLARGE.

I recorded and watched “Pope Francis — The Sinner” on Thursday night.

It was good, exceeded my expectations. Lots of interesting footage and commentaries. Pithy and fast-paced.

Yes, I knew at least 95% of what was presented BUT then again I have spent a lot of time researching this pope and writing about him.

It is definitely worth watching ahead of the pope’s first visit to the U.S. next week.


I do talk about much of what is covered in this documentary in my
Pope Francis’ U.S. Visit 2015”.

This is ALL great news. As ever I got the ‘heads up’ from my U.K. “Daily Mail“, which I read daily, in bed, first thing in the morning, while having my coffee and listening to CNBC.

I am going to watch the YouTube episode tomorrow. Can’t wait till it appears on PBS. Though it says September, it might make an appearance on Boston Channel 44 on August 26, 2015.

I will keep you posted. Enjoy. Cheers.

Update: We watched Season 6 Episode 1 on YouTube, in its entirety, on August 12. It was, at least for us, NOT in HD. That was slightly disappointing because we are so used to HD in nearly everything we watch. And it wasn’t full-screen. It was inside a frame with the name of the show, i.e., “Great British Bake Off”, on it. But it was the full show. We got to see the whole weekend, the 3 bakes, “Star Baker” — and who was kicked out. So it was good. Can’t wait for Episode 2. Kind of NOT sure why PBS is bothering. Most of us will have seen it before PBS gets around to it.
