Not sure if I should post this deal in hot deal section or freebie section...

Anyway, if you are an subscriber of Telus Optik TV, you can Preview BBC Earth for free on ch. 725 from Feb 18 to Apr 23. And watch Planet Earth II starting Feb. 18 in 4K On Demand by pressing the On Demand button on your remote, then selecting Featured, then 4K.

Bell Xpressvue has the same preview . Started a couple weeks ago. The shows narrated by David Attenborough are superb.

I've heard good things about the PQ and performance of Telus's 4K box- too bad there's little in the way of content.

But of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that there's some pretty good sales on for Planet Earth 2 right now and really feel like this is one of the few shows that deserve a blu-ray purchase for all its higher-bitrate, HDR (not sure if the broadcast will include HDR) splendour for your nice, new KS8000.

All the TV providers have several free previews of pay channels on at any given time, so this doesn't normally rate a mention on RFD at all, but perhaps a 4K channel preview is an exception.

Often a pay channel will have a simultaneous promotion on with all the TV providers at the same time. You need to check their web site on a monthly basis to see which ones apply to you. The Telus free previews are announced in their monthly newsletter, and also appear on their web site normally under "What's New", but they seem to have screwed that up at the moment - their "What's New" links all go to a generic products and services web page instead of the correct listing.

The Telus free previews (for BC) are normally here: http://www.telus.com/en/bc/tv/highlights/
The Shaw Cable free previews are here: https://www.shaw.ca/television/news-and-free-previews/

I've had RADX as part of my OPTIK channel lineup for years and now it's gone. Their website says it's replaced by BBC Earth... so do I get that swapped in or am I now paying for one less channel and have to pay ADDITIONALLY if I want BBC Earth? Don't tell me to contact TELUS--I like you lot much more!
