Good afternoon @bytownrick,
Thank you for your post!
Thank you for your inquiry regarding the Discovery Velocity channel. I validated the information and was able to confirm that the Free Preview did begin yesterday, January 20th 2016. Since it is a national preview, it is available to all our cable customers from New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Ontario and Quebec.
Please note that if you are in Hamilton, you would have to tune in to channel 242.
Hey Community!? Did anybody else noticed that they were getting the "unauthorized message" when tuning in to channel 245 or 534, for the Free Preview of Discovery Velocity?
I had the Discovery Velocity teaser (free preview) many months ago. Now it's "greened out" and when I select it, it tells me I need to order it (at extra cost, no doubt). Is this another "free preview" or only in selected areas?
Your contribution is much appreciated, as usual thanks for your input.
Thank you for trying to access this channel and confirming this information.
This allowed me to reach out to the appropriate party, in order to get clarifications on the issue with the Discovery Velocity Free preview.
We were able to identify the issue and it was investigated thoroughly. At this time, I am able to say that your access to this free preview will be implemented in tonight's maintenance window. We are sorry for the inconveniences this may have caused you @bytownrick.
Everyone should therefore have access to the free preview station in question as of tomorrow morning
Thank you so much for your patience!
Thanks for checking this out. I do remember getting a free preview of that channel some months ago and didn't expect to see it again. I'll look for it tomorrow.
