    During this time if I dvr something through "on demand" will it still play once the free weekend goes away? I would think it would have to.

    I don't pay for showtime but I'm getting it right now. All 8 or 9 channels are on.

    From my experience, no. I DVR'ed a movie and never got around to watching it until months later, well after I had canceled all of my movie channels. Got an error message stating something along the lines of not having permission to view the recording.

    If you're wanting to record something for later viewing, I'd break out either the VHS or DVD-R for the weekend...

    There's pretty much nothing worth watching on though so I wouldn't be sad if it went away. I suppose their waiting to put the good movies on during the real preview.

    The last time DirecTV did this, I recorded a bunch of movies. I never had a problem watching any of them after the free-movie weekend ended. I guess we'll find out in 2 weeks.

    It's like what they give everyone for free for signing up. It sucked. Then again, when I had it it didn't have Weeds or Dexter. As a whole I find all of the premium channels to be a big waste of money. HBO, Starz, Cinemax and Showtime all play the same tired movies most of the time and sprinkle in a "cutting edge" series once in a while...

    Hope they play the Dexter finale. I had Showtime free for 3 months and it cut off the week before the finale. I know the wife dies, but it would be nice to see it happen!
