I was one of the people that jumped ship over to Directv when AMC was still not on Dish network, when the third season of Walking Dead premiered. The promotion that Directv offered was to pay up to $200 of my ETF. I paid my final bill, which included the $17 charge for shipping the equipment back. However, I did not get charged the ETF for the 9 months left on my contract. The first time I called they said it would be $157, but to wait for it. Today I called, after 4 weeks, and they said I did not owe anything. I asked twice if they were sure, and the rep said if I had not received the bill by now, it probably got waived. I did mention when I cancelled my subscription, that I was doing so because of the lack of AMC after five months. Could this be the reason I was not charged an ETF, at least as of now, which has been about a month? I was also wondering if Dish does not charge me an ETF, will Directv still give the the $200 Visa Gift card? If I had subscribed through Costco, I would have got a $200 gift card, or through AAA, a $200 credit towards my bill on top of Directv's best offer.
