The five premium cable channels are giving non-subscribers free access to their programs this weekend (9-11 January 2015) as an enticement for subscription sign-ups.

However, not everyone can access the free programming everywhere.

  • Cinemax and HBO: on AT&T U-verse, DirecTV, Dish Network, and Verizon FIOS
  • Encore: on Dish Network only
  • Showtime: on AT&T U-verse, Bright House, Cable One, Century Link, Comcast, DirecTV, Dish Network, Mediacom, RCN, and Verizon FIOS
  • Starz: on DirecTV & Dish Network only

If you can’t access the programs that these cable channels are screening this weekend, all is not lost. You can still stream for free the full episodes of certain programs that Showtime and Starz make available year-round.
