    I have bundled D* with Verizon internet, phone, & wireless.....all billed once per month by Verizon.

    I think I saw that I can still get the $10 deal.

    If that is correct, I was wondering the logistics of how the autopay would work.

    Just got the deal. Took 3 min to setup my auto-pay online. Then i waited for the email confirmation to arrive, took about 10 min.

    Then i called CS and they gave me the credit in about 3 min.

    Well worth the 6 min it took to get it :grin:

    If you get the right CSR, they will realize that you paying via Verizon is a version of AutoPay and you should be able to get it.

    I got the discount and I have the FIOS Triple Play and my D* on one Verizon bill. So you should be able to get the discount, as I had no trouble getting it put on my account.

    I didn't see anything in my recent activity on the website, so I called again, talked to two people again. This time the second person gave me the 24 months and it showed up on the website. Success! :goodjob:

    ^ The expectation is that in some form or another, this promo will be in effect from now on. At some point, the HD Access fee will simply go away. Now, you know that old phrase about assumptions making an ass out of you and me, so nothing is in concrete but it would be a great surprise if it ever comes back.

    Excellent news. :)

    Sweet! I just got the 24 month free HD access in about 5 minutes.

    Now to wait until the first bill for NFLST to call again. :)

    I have to say, DTV's customer service has improved dramatically from the earlier days. :D

    ABC/Disney turned off the channels yesterday morning ... it is hard for DISH to carry channels when the provider pulls the feed. (We have been discussing it in the more appropriate forum on this site.)

    It is Choice or above. The CSR was just misinformed.

    "misinformed"? i just have to laugh. just when are they ever properly informed? personally, i've lost count over the past 13 years how many times they've given me misinformation. hands down, no one else is even close.....the saddest customer svc i've ever encountered.

    I don't know, but they were pretty well informed when they gave me free HD for 24 months. Do you communicate with them via phone or email? I ask because the he lack of capitalization in your email correspondence may have contributed to the confusion on their part.

    You can get if for 1+ year very easily.

    Here is a thread from last january 2009 about it & there are even older than this.

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=150178&highlight=hd+extra+pack+free

    Just cancel it before the 3 months ends then just sign up again.

    I think im on like my 14th free month in a row.

    What's the point? You don't have HD.
