Super Channel's free preview

I see you added the Super Channels to free preview until the end of the month. Does that include the on demand channel or do you have to pay the content provider making it too expensive to offer it free?

You don't need an "expensive" box.  Many people are giving away their STBs or selling them for around $10-20.  If you want OD and/or access to many more channels than you get with a DTA, the price for a used STB should not stand in your way. Just make sure you heed the points outlined in the following post when buying used:

I can see the movies on the SC channels and I can get to SC-OD (Channel 100 or 338 in Toronto), however, if I select a movie it asks me to subscribe on the OD channel(s).  I was just doing it as an experiment since there's little of interest to me on SC.

I have the grandfathered VIP digital cable package, Ch 338 SCOD, Super Channel On Demand, has always been available. Now my IPG shows Channels

334SCHD1Super Channel 1
335SCHD2Suoer Channel 2
336VaultSuper Channel Vault
337GINXHSuper Channel Sports
   
339SCHD1Super Channel 1
340SCHD2Super Channel 2

are also available. But when I tune to any one of those, I get a message saying the channel name, Tuning channel, One moment please, and after a couple of minutes it turns to "Channel Not Available, please try again later".

What's up with that?

The return signal from your STB is not getting to the node or head end. This usually means you can't use any OD functionality and often can't tune to the SDV channels either. You have a signal issue:

If you can tune the SDV channels and can access OD, like channel 100, then perhaps a reboot will rectify, the issue, but you should check your signal.

Re: Super Channel's free preview

I usually check signal on channel 11 and sometimes that showed the error as well, although the signal was excellent, 1dBmV, 37dB S/N. Similar on those "unavailable" Super channels.  But a power down reboot fixed everything and I can see those channels now. Thanks @57 .
