DISH October Free Previews: Hallmark, NBA League Pass and More

October free previews on DISH

With apologies to June, December, and all of the other excellent months (step aside, February, this doesn’t concern you), October is the best month of the year. The leaves are beautiful, the temperatures are moderate, and the Halloween costumes are clever. That’s to say nothing about the “Sports Equinox” — that all-too-brief window late in October when all four professional leagues are playing at the same time. 

Here at DISH, we’re celebrating October the same way we do lesser months: By giving our subscribers a free preview of select channels. Whether you’re into sports, travel, or, heck, even Christmas, DISH Network has a number of free previews you can enjoy this October. Check out the DISH October free previews below.
