In addition to the four premium channels above, the U-verse preview will also include the Epix channel. DIRECTV’s free view will not include Epix because the satcaster does not carry the channel.

The preview comes after both AT&T-owned TV services offered HBO and Cinemax for free last weekend.

Shows and movies that will air this weekend on the four channels include episode nine of Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO), Get Out (HBO), The Girlfriend Experience (Starz, pictured above) Passengers (Starz), Shameless (Showtime), White Famous (Showtime), Chips (Cinemax) and several Clint Eastwood films (Unforgiven, Blood Work), which will air most of Sunday on Cinemax.
