    "DEAL" is the callsign of an infomercial channel owned by CMedia.

    If that does not work, there is a Showtime deal where you get a $25 mail in rebate after 3 months of service. Check the bottom of this Directv page for the
    info/links.

    well reading the thread that some one else posted.. YES you can get Showtime free for a year, but again its CSR roulette.... some give it to you within seconds others do not..

    just food for thought..

    Just called and got 12 months free the first CSR I talked to. He asked where I saw this offer and I told him I saw it online. He said ok, and told me he just activated it and to have a nice day.

    Banner is still there, and still makes no mention of being for new customers only. Apparently they didn't learn from last time. :nono2:

    Interesting. Some see a banner, others don't. Some get the deal, others don't.

    Everyone can see the banner. It's all about cookies. If you clear your cookies, or browse to the site using private mode (CTRL+SHIFT+P), you'll see the banner.

    I didn't see the banner either on Directv's site because I was logged in. Log off of their site then you will see it along with other offers for new customers.

    For those that got it, did you call the order number, or Customer Service? I was planning on calling Customer service this week to see if I could get any deal on HBO, might ask about this at the same time.

    I just called in and they said I wasn't eligible for a year free but I could get 3 months free. I took it and she said it auto cancels after 3 months, but I will still keep an eye on it.

    I wish I knew D*'s criteria on who gets these offers like this one. I was told by two different CRSs on consecutive days that I wasn't eligible and the offer was only for new subs. I've been with D* since 1998 (Primestar) and have NEVER missed a payment. I guess I need to stop making payments and threatening to cancel every time one of these offers surface in order to get one.
    (Full disclosure) I did get Showtime for six months for $8 and a $10 per month credit, so it isn't all bad.

    After one transfer, free for 6 months. Was really hoping for free HBO for 3 months or so, but no deal there.
