HBO is rumored to be free this weekend. I rescanned channels and still don't see it.

If you have Comcast as your provider the free HBO is available only through their OnDemand system, it's not available on the normal linear channels. This is the way Comcast has done this for several years now.

Well, fooey, did another rescan and still don't see HBO. My sister, who like me has Comcast, says she's getting HBO free this weekend. Hmmmm.
