Message notifications - DirecTV

How come I did not receive a message notification on the Dtv guide for this weekends free preview of the ppv channels. I did not even know the ppv channels were available to me until I accidentally tuned into one of the channels and then upon further investigation via internet research; realized I had access to a majority of the ppv channels for a free preview; now that it's almost over. Normally I would have recieved a msg from the menu guide which I did not. I was only msg'd about the free HD extra pk preview which ended on the 22ND Nov. How dissappointing. I really look forward to those free previews when they are available as I cannot afford the other ppv pkgs. Bummed broke an bored subscriber!

This question, "Message notifications," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
