I am confused, is HBO not free on our TV for these few days?

Re: Xfinity Stream HBO & Cinemax Free Preview

My "on demand" for tv series (on my 3 desktop computers and 1 tablet) are not working. There is no "watch now" tab and episodes listed below it, just "upcoming" tab. This has been going on since Saturday 11-17-2018. Did you guys accidently change something after my phone call to customer service where you charged me for a WWE Wrestling match on pay per view that I did order or watch.  It seems to have started after that.  I have made multiple phone calls totaling at least 7 hours. My next phone call is going to be to the "PUC". You are not providing the service I am over paying for. YOU NEED TO FIX YOUR STREAMING WEBSITE "https://www.xfinity.com/stream/" IT IS BLOCKING PEOPLE FROM RECEIVING ON DEMAND ON COMPUTERS. CHECK YOUR COMPLAINT FORUM.  And btw, there are no tabs in the free hbo/max tv series page like game of thrones, ballers, oz, sopranos, etc.

HOW TO ACCESS THE FREE HBO THANKSGIVING WEEKEND.

 Press the "XFINITY" button then select "ON DEMAND" then select "HBO FREE PREVIEW".

You can also access it with the Xfinity Streaming App on your computer.

Why can't I record the movies I want to watch during this "free" weekend?

I have no idea except if you could record them you could not watch them after the free preview is over. The DVR could not access a movie or channel you do not pay for.

The preview is only through OnDemand, and you cannot record OnDemand.

I thought the free preview was thru Sunday the 25th, however it’s not working today. When I go to either HBO or Cinemax, it asks me to subscribe. I’m disappointed.

ATT Uverse allows selection of Free Preview weekends from menu and allows recording.  Come on Comcast Xfinity, get your act together.  Disappointed I ever left Uverse. Less issues, fast internet and much better tv system

I didn’t think it was either, but you have to go to On Demand.

That's nice you offer free channels and I can no longer access the ones I pay for!  All that shows up on my Xfinity Stream is HBO,Cinemax, and 7 channels of some sports. When I tried to watch AMC-The Walking Dead it was showing a subscribe button , same with FX .  I can't watch my shows but I'm sure I'll still be charged full price and told it was somehow an error on my behalf. Well seems like many other customers are having the same problem at the same time!
