Does it usually take a couple hours for the channels to activate because mine aren't active yet?

I enabled the channels yesterday, this morning I scanned through them to see what I might like to record between now and Monday AM. I found a few things that looked interesting, but over all the channels through the whole weekend there were only 2 movies I set to record and they were older ones I added more out of nostalgia.

Once upon a time the preview weekends would cram a lot of things into them to entice you to get the channels, but all this one did was convince me there was no need for me to pay $15 a month. For the last few years the only times I've had HBO was for the original series. Last time I turned it on when Curb Your Enthusiasm came on, turned it off the day after it ended.

We just canceled our free trial a week ago, and I was really missing HBO. I was excited to see this.
