The problem with this free preview is that many of the channels that are being offered by verizon in this package for free do not actually match what is listed on the guide. Many of the channels that are offered in the spanish package are off by several hours and now that everyone has a free preview of what is in this package they can see for themselves what i and a lot of other people have been dealing with for years where a lot of the channels in the package never match so it feels as if many of us are getting robbed of our opportunity to enjoy what you have to offer in this package. Some of the channels in this package that never match and anyone who tunes in to those channels can now confirm it are channels 1509, 1511, 1512, 1516, 1548, 1567, 1582, 1646 where there are also occasions where games that are listed on aym sports and tyc sports that rarely match. Tvc + latino channel 477 in my area has also been an issue for a long time where that channel is off by three hours because they are running a west coast schedule for people on the east coast. So what the guide indicates was on three hours ago is on right now. It would also behoove verizon to try to diversify its spanish package and add as many 24/7 channels as they can from different spanish speaking countries rather than constantly adding every single channel that there is from mexico. All of these channels are primarily owned by televisa and many of the programs that they have to offer are exactly the same. I see that you are scheduled to add caracol, telefe, and some spanish programming in hd later on this year where verizon is currently in negotiations with peru magico to add that channel. It would be a good move to add peru magico and another channel like canal sur peru.
