  1. Directv used to be great. Really great, with the best customer service. Then AT&T bought them. Now when you call customer service, you get some snarky person, usually with an accent I cannot understand, and if you ask them to repeat, you get a sigh, then very slowly like you’re a five year-old. Just talk at a normal rate, please. And you spend half an hour with them to get absolutely nowhere, if you can get to an actual person at all instead of going in circles. I didn’t get the free preview. I’ve been with Directv since 1997, so I can tell you, it’s been really downhill since the buyout.

  2. I am NOT receiving any of the free channels on my at&t tv so Sick of at&t it is the biggest RIP off of our money. if you are going to promote a free service then give it with this pandemic going on I was looking forward to this only to be let down again by at&t

  3. Well, after about 10 hours on the first day, the premium channels were finally fully activated (watch and record) all except one Showtime Extreme. While I’m thankful for the full activation of the majority of this holiday free preview, I’m left wondering why this had to happen. In my mind I’m thinking it should be as simple as flipping a switch, but I guess with satellite communications, delays are still possible. The learning here is to be patient when DIRECTV opens up free preview content, full capability won’t be immediate but should become available during the first day.

  4. No free channels : ( . Was informed by tec that it would take 24 to 48 hours to fix , hoping for free movies by Saturday ,guess we’ll see .

  5. It’s a shame how DiectTV has offered these free services, epic fail, already look bad in the eyes of customers, have gone down hill tremendously and yet still can’t provide an honest answer or provide an email to customers as a heads up to the mistake or problem.

  6. WTF!!!! This is BS. Tell us free movies now they don’t work. Come on. Stuck at home. Movies movies movies movies!!!!!!!! Free free free free free!!!! Now!

  7. Not getting movie selected unless I reboot each selection. Terrible. Also the message of free thanksgiving premium movies has been deleted. Connie rust. ……….Last time this happen 2019 they put in.the wrong dates.

  8. What the HECK! I was looking forward to this free preview as we are all supposed to stay home and social distance. VERY Disappointed that I am not receiving them either.

  9. I’m not getting any of these channels at all. Just spoke to a “Customer Service” Rep that advised there was a delay making them available. Not sure I believe it. Took over 20 minutes to get him to understand my problem! Very disappointing AT&T & DirecTV.

  10. All premium channels in the current offer are grayed out on the channel guide. You can select any one of them and watch a show but you cannot record any of the free content. With so much new free content offered you might want to DVR record shows to actually benefit. Directv, according to one of their tech support agents, is not going to fully activate these channels as they have in the past. Pretty disappointing offer IMHO.

    • I tried that and got the message, “Sorry, this purchase exceeds the spending limit ($$) you set. Press select on Unlock Now to override.” I took this as a warning that they were going to charge me for something that should be free. Talked to two techs on DirecTV website, via Chat, and neither one new about the promo. Typical DirecTV customer service. I’m done with them in 4 months.

  11. Can’t DVR any of these so how I can I benefit? I’m not sitting around watching one program at a time on a holiday. Epic fail. Another reason to cut the cord and I will after Sunday Ticket expires.

    • They don’t show as available but if you go to “All Channels” on the guide you will see them in grey. This usually means that you don’t get that channel but with the preview you can click on it and watch live, but not record.
