Cox Phoenix has a “free” weekend right now. HBO & Cinemax! IDK if those are SDV channels or not. Of course, I am getting 0/21 of those channels. In the past, wIth my same TiVo, wherever they have their ‘free’ weekend, I get every single one of the premium channels I am supposed to get. However, I never was able to get Cox On Demand to work for those Premium channels & had called tech support & wasted much time on the phone…ending with them saying that You SHOULD be able to use On Demand this weekend for ShowTime or HBO, etc. I also had discovered that I cannot use ON Demand for many channels that I always do get. For example I can go to CBS & click on a random show & get it to work but AMC or Comedy Central does NOT work with On Demand, Instead of “this is included in your package” I get an offer to “upgrade to Watch” On Demand for that channel that I already get & can watch live TV. I wasted ½ hr. On the phone with Cox support with a tech who claimed that TiVo users cannot get live TV for free premium channel weekends but they can get the Premium On Demand & offered to send out a tech. (I’ve had enough techs out here in the past month due to Tuning adapter fiasco) I explained that for many past ‘free’ weekends, I got all the live TV premium channels advertised but no On Demand & I am now being told it is the opposite! I think this tech was clueless. I almost never even try On Demand. My questions to the community: 1) For Cox Promotional “free” weekends do you get the advertised premium channels? For Live TV? 2) Do you get the On Demand access for those same premium channels during the weekend? 3) Regardless of a free weekend, can you go to On Demand & access every Channel that you normally get with your package? Is this a TiVo issue? I assume there is some software setting that Cox changes (Authorize or not) when you subscribe or cancel a package or subscription to the premium channels. Should be unrelated to your DVR. I doubt TiVo would have become a favorite years ago, b4 streaming, if you could not get HBO, Showtime, etc….. if you had a TiVo.
