I don't currently subscribe to any cable/satellite service (my last service was directv) and I was thinking of going with Dish. I'm not sure yet because I'm using Netflix and streaming everything now but for the right deal I might sign up. I see new customers get HBO and Showtime free for three months. Are they able to budge at all on this, to say six months? Or are they able to offer anything more than their initial promotions for new customers? Like even cheaper deals? I'm just not sure if I want to sign up with a tv service again, so obviously the sweeter the deal, the more likely I'll agree to a contract. Anyone have experience with negotiating even during the initial sign up? Does Dish have MLB extra innings? Anyone that has had both directv and Dish, are there any big differences between them? The channel selection looks mostly the same.
