    Of course, no Dish customer is currently being charged for HBO or Cinemax at all. ;)

    Any ideas about fixing an odd result from the free Epix weekend? I was going to be out of town so recorded several movies. They recorded fine and state that I have xx days left to watch them. When I try to start each of those recorded movies, I'm told that the movie is no longer available. Anyone else experience this?

    I had the same thing happen to me. I downloaded season 2 of Deep State to binge watch and by the time I got around to watch it said I had 17 days left but went to watch and it stated that it had expired. Maybe EPIX or Dish put something in the software that you can only watch it during the free preview. I hope Showtime or Starz doesn't do this. I have the Hopper 2/Sling.

    Is this only happening for On Demand titles, or also live recordings on DVR?

    Well I guess we'll see when another free preview comes up for Starz or Epix.
