Where do i look for news of free previews, new shows, etc?

Where do i look for news of free previews, new shows, etc?

I do not like this updated version of xfinity online. I avoid it whenever I can. It takes entirely too long for the page to load.

 

I used to be able to go the main page and learn about free premium freeview weekends, hear about a new show or when there was a new Watchathon announced. Where is that info located now?

 

Thumbs down, Xfinity!

Free Previews, Watchathon's are always announced in advance on your bill.  You can view those there or with the MyAccount APP on your smart device.

I don't actually see my bill since i pay it online. This is what it says on all my online bills.

"Your bill is currently being generated, please check back later for your bill details."

Usually a few days after being generated, you should be able to access the full bill, which is a PDF file.

Sadly, I do not find this to be the case, Watchathons maybe, but many others I only learn about by reading messages here in the Forums. Right now, for example, the NHL Center ice preview (http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/NHL-Center-Ice-Free-Preview/m-p/2868230#M80897) and the Showtime preview (http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/Showtime-Free-Preview-Starts-Tomorrow/m-p/2870...) are running, but there is nothing about either of these on any of my bills, unfortunately. There are many other examples.

 

This has always puzzled me. What's the point of spending the bucks to do a free preview if hardly any anyone knows about it???

 

ETA: Also running (without any other notice): HBO and Cinemax preview (http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/HBO-and-Cinemax-Free-Preview-This-Weekend/m-p/...).
