Cinemax Penny Promo still going on?
Posted 28 April 2010 - 02:03 PM
Will check the bill, but the guide they disappeared, unless I look at all channels and they are green, oh well. I did go online to make sure via chat I am not being charged for them, I am not, but I will wait for the bill 1st.

Got home from work yesterday and checked Cinemax, it was still on. Called DISH I guess I went to India, after talking to 2 idiots I hung up and called again. Requested Tech support and got an American and some answers, My account has again been debited .01 for another year of Cinemax. He explained the promotion was supposed to end but some customers are being billed by the computer and DISH so far is honoring it. Seems to be another DISH GLITCH but as long as it is in my favor I won't complain. I still wouldn't pay for Cinemax but if it is being given to me I won't refuse it. Well that is my update, should I call and double check?:)
MY update, MAY bill had a $12.99 charge for Cinemax. DISH now claims the 1 cent is being charged at the end of the year.

Subscribe to Cinamax. MLB is an another matter.
Thanks, I'm fine with what I have for the moment ('til the contract expires) --there's enough good to balance out the rest. Just put off by being extended the offer only to have it yanked away. Doesn't instill confidence in this (newish) user.
In the grand scheme of things, not an item of concern.

Ooops, just looked at my online bill. Says they'll be adding $13 for Max starting next bill. The current bill shows 6/24/10 to 7/23/10, does that mean I have until 7/23 to drop Max? Definitely going the streaming method starting next month!

UPDATE The $12 monthly charge was not removed and indeed appeared again this month. I called, received credit for the $12 X 2 but there will be no 1 Cent/year renewal.
Yesterday (4/15/2010) I received a letter from Dish saying my 1 cent Cinemax Promo was ending next month and that they would be charging my account $12.99/month starting with next bill.
I did an on-line chat to cancel Cinemax and the rep gave me an additional year for a penny.

Is the Cinemax for a penny deal available to new subscribers??? I'm debating on subscribing to Dish.
