    New customers. Way back in 95, I signed up with the same offer.

    Not really that new. They often use different packages (like NFL) as an incentive.

    Are there any updates on this? I tried calling to get a discount from retention just now and was told "we dont have anything"....so I am going to try later like 10pm..sometimes if you talk to one of the west coast retention CSRs you get a different response. Theres only 3 weeks until the season so they better come up with something quick or I am dropping it. I am not paying 200 bucks and they have already billed me 33 dollars twice. Anyone else get any reduction in price on this?

    tonyd you are a big baseball fan...did you get a discount on EI?

    I can confirm through a DIRECTV dealer that new customers who sign up between 3/1 and 4/15 will get free Extra Innings. However the offer is limited to new customers. Calling and complaining could get you something, but it's not likely to get you a free sports package.

    Stuart, I and many others on here have never paid full price for a sports package. I havent paid full price in 4 years. It is hard to believe that theres NOTHING they have for retention on the package, so I will keep trying. I was just wondering if anyone else has had any luck yet.

    I also called and attempted to get free MLB extra Innings ... Ended with a 159.00 discount, 10.00 off 6 months, free Starz/Showtime and a 200.00 Visa Gift card ..they didn't want to give it to me for free , they gave me more discounts than free but absolutely wouldn't give it for free .. A one year extension of my contract was needed as well
