Premium channel preview???

Lots of providers are offering a free preview of HBO/Showtime/Cinemax/etc during Jan 11-13. Does anyone know if WOW! will be doing this? I didn't see any announcement on the WOW! twitter page...

WOW! will not be participating in this free preview.

Could you at least tell us why they never participate in them?

WOW should really consider doing some of these things to try and make their users feel important, especially after all the of recent issues with their service.

Wow never participates in this. It's a shame.

Really everyone should be getting a free month to make up for all the crap lately. But no, we can't even get a free weekend that it looks like every other major cable co is offering.

Someone on FB said WOW told them they weren't participating because Showtime shows R rated movies.

I suppose there could be some truth to it as they wouldn't want the Premium channels accessible by anyone, including children.

That's BS and you know it! The Starz and Encore channels are part of the Signature package and they both show uncut, R-rated movies. Starz shows Spartacus, which has some pretty raw scenes.

I bet the real reason is that WOW! doesn't show "free previews" is that they probably pay a lower price on their contracts, thus not being able to participate in them.
