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?


@OLDYELLR

 

Just read this thread, so I tried channel 245 and am getting it. I'm in Toronto East York, but I don't know if that makes any difference. You're close to Hamilton aren't you?

 

EDIT: While I was composing this message, I see you replied. Is it on channel 242 in your area?

No, I see it on 245 and 534 in the Woodstock area. 242 is COSMOTV here.

Re: Discovery Velocity Free Preview

I am not able to get the free preview on either channel and I have a standard box and am able to get the other channels that are also having a free preview. Do I need to do something?

@LynnieD I see it on 245 and 534 in the Woodstock area. What package do you have?  I have VIP and it's just a preview and will end sometime. I didn't get it at first either, but @CommunityHelps fixed it.

Re: Discovery Velocity Free Preview

I have basic lite but as I mentioned before I am getting other free preview channels. Is it only an HD channel.because I don't have an HD box. Just SD

Re: Discovery Velocity Free Preview

I just checked. 245 and 534 are both HD channels and don't work on a SD box. Smiley Sad
