Already exhausted your supply of shows and movies? Well, AT&T, Xfinity, and YouTube TV want to help. These three services are offering add-on channels to their customers for the next month, free of charge and without any hidden renewal fees.
AT&T: Starz, Epix, and Showtime
Let’s start with AT&T. As part of the company’s new #ConnectedTogether program, all DirecTV, U-Verse, AT&T TV, and AT&T TV Now customers will gain access to premium channels over a staggered schedule:
- March 26th to April 4th: Starz (For DirecTV and U-Verse Subscribers Only)
- April 4th to April 16th: Epix
- April 17th to April 20th: HBO and Cinemax
Keep in mind that the Starz trial is only open to DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse subscribers. Epix, HBO, and Cinemax will be included in all of the aforementioned AT&T service packages.
Xfinity: SHOWTIME, Epix, HISTORY Vault, and More
Comcast is taking a broader, simple approach than AT&T. The provider is granting free access to a mess of on demand services, from SHOWTIME to DOG TV.
Xfinity X1 and Flex subscribers will have access to these services for the next 30 days, and can access them by using the voice command “free” with the Xfinity Voice remote:
- Curiosity Stream
- The Great Courses Signature Collection
- Grokker Yoga Fitness & Wellbeing
- HISTORY Vault
- Kids Room
- The Reading Corner
According to BusinessWire, Comcast plans to offer more free content to Xfinity X1 and Flex subscribers over the next few weeks.
YouTube TV: EPIX
YouTube TV is kind of an odd duck here. The cable-like streaming service is offering “extended free preview” of EPIX from March 26th to April 25th. And that’s really all there is to it. Google will add this month-long trial to your account automatically, and will not charge you for an EPIX subscription once the trial ends.
As of right now, EPIX is the only free add-on service offered to YouTube TV customers.
