    Just noticed tonight that the Starz package I was expecting to get for free for a year starting Feb 1st, started showing up tonight. Anybody else getting the package early?

    I have Dish250 w/Platinum and HD free for life now. I activated a new ViP211 yesterday and during the check switch and reboot, all the StarZ channels I was expecting were on Feb 1st are in the guide. Both of my 722k's are NOT showing the Starz channels going to do a check switch to see if that makes a difference for them.

    The ?!?!?!?! was both confusion and excitement that on Jan 28th 4 days before I was supposed to be getting Starz free, after the price increase and 2 year price freeze, I was already getting them.

    Still confused though, as only the newly activated 211 see's all the Starz channels, as both of my 722k's even after a check switch still don't show the Starz Channels in the all "Sub". 211 has no problem tuning into any of the Starz Channels either.

    Just replaced a 722k due to hard drive failure and had Starz when I activated it.

    Yesterday I cancelled STARZ via Twitter & it's gone. This morning I got a tweet from Dish saying: depending of your level of service you might get a different gift. I thought the promo was just for STARZ. I tweeted back saying to turn STARZ back. if they don't I'll just order it through my VIP 722.

    I'll never do that again!

    I see the six PPV coupons as well, dated 1/27.

    Found out the hard way last month, the PPV coupons don't work for VOD.

    Still Green here.

    Haven't done a Check Switch, but I might try that if they don't show up by morning.

    Watch for the Uplink Report ... channels 339, 349 and 360 will become active. Whichever one you get will tell you what your anniversary gift is.

    Sunday's fun day with channel moves should not affect the gifts. The channels still exist and are authorized in the same way that they were on the old satellites.
