Anyone else notice DirecTV is blocking the ability to DVR programs during the preview? Come Friday we'll see if that opens up and if they do allow it who knows if the DVR content will be available past the 18th. DVRing shows during free previews has never been a problem before this time.

when did that ever occur? I've always been able to record freeview and don't expect it to be different now. My shows are still there a year later.

I think Dish is doing it, as well... I got an email on Monday telling me not to forget about the free preview, but hadn't gotten anything prior to that, so i'm assuming it's talking about THIS weekend...

Thanks updated OP, wouldn't be surprised to see Directv unload on us with Showtime too.

I've always recorded programs during free previews and watched later as well. This is the first time it's not letting me.

My point was that prior to this upcoming preview I was able to set my DVR to record shows ahead of time. I can't this time. We'll see if that changes come Friday.

This morning DirecTV let me DVR programs inside the free preview window. We'll see if they're playable past Monday.
