Preview premium channels for free on Verizon FiOS

Think of it as a test drive for TV stations.

Verizon announced a new perk for its FiOS customers on Monday that will allow them to preview HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, EPIX or Starz for up to 48 hours. The offer will be available on not only live TV but also for On Demand titles and through the Fios Mobile App. While you'll be able to preview each channel individually, you'll only be able to do so once a year. Still, it beats waiting for those randomly timed free preview weekends.

*Verizon owns AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
