    They offered me only HBO then I said I heard Showtime was being offered also and they hooked me up with both. No contract extension

    Does it autocancel when the 3 months expire? I hate when they put that extra change for the 4th month on your bill before the 3 months are up.

    These promotions are auto cancel. The bill will generate before they expire but they will auto remove at the end of the promotion. No further action is needed by the customers!

    Mary B : I have the old AT120 without locals (save $5/month) On my account it says If I change the basic package I will loose that package as it it no longer available. I also have the free strarz for a year anniversary deal. No other premium things. If I request the free 3 month HBO, Showtime do you think it will also change my basic package? I figure you guys might know more than some CSR's

    Since the promotion you are on is a Grandfathered promotion, any change to your account, including any programming package will result in the loss of this package. It will inevitably happen at some point but I understand that $5.00 a month is a savings. The Starz did not effect this as it was done as a special promo and is outside the normal procedures.

    When I went thru the online chat, They had to check something on my account, then they gave me 3 months of HBO & Cinemax. I asked about having to call in after the 3 months and I was told it would automaticly be removed, no call in needed.

    riverlake,

    Yes, at the end of the 3 month period, HBO and Cinemax will each automatically be removed from your account. If you choose to keep those packages, you will need to call us to have it added back to your account.

    Probably not. I had AEP for a year. I dropped it because of Showtime's low quality movies. I wished HBO/Cinamax would combine services.

    Nope. From what I have gleaned, you cannot already be paying for the programming to get it for free.

    You mean 'recombine' as they used to be sold together as a package all the time.

    either PM the DIRT team with her account info, which may work.

    Or she can call in and ask for it.

    What a great company Dish has become.....earlier this year I was quite upset with them, but decided to stick it out.

    Can't go into all the details, but everyone seems to be very happy, including me, with how they are taking care of their "existing" customers as well as the new ones.

    When times get better :confused: someday, maybe I can afford to upgrade again to my previous packages. Until then, these offerings are just right to keep me as a customer over the long haul.

    Guess What! Like I stated earlier, I have AEP with Platinum and decided to go ahead and give it a try anyways and It worked for me, The Dish Rep gave me HBO And Showtime Free For 3 Months.
    Love you Guys and this Forum So Much! Thanks
