I'm still getting it. I had it with the "2 year" Absolute promo, which is about to expire. Do I need to keep HBO to keep the Cinemax for the 1 cent deal (before my 2 years is up)? I'm thinking of dropping all my movie channels and signing up for Netfix over the Wii. $9/mo. seems like a MUCH better deal for "video on demand". But if I can keep getting Max for 1 cent, I plan to keep it until they start charging.

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!

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.
... .

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.

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