HBO is promoting their new animated series “Animals” (pictured above) for mature audiences that focuses on rats, pigeons, cockroaches and other creatures that live in Earth’s least-habitable environments.

HBO and Cinemax ran a similar free preview period last summer, during which time AT&T U-verse, Comcast Xfinity TV, Cox, DirecTV, Dish, and Verizon FIOS were among the participating TV service providers.

  1. I recorded several programs during the free preview and for some reason about half of them would not playback on my dish hopper. Checking with tech support for possible drive problems the support people theorized and postulated that some of the movies may be marked by HBO for limited playback ( like the pay per view) after going thru most of them they maybe right.
    First time I have seen this occur with the free promotions.
    Pity that Dish or HBO failed to disclosed the limited playback on those films ahead of time.
    Guess this should have been promoted as free preview( with restrictions)
