Just called up. The CSR said I wasn't eligible for the free Showtime promotion, but said that he would give me a different deal for $10/month off my bill for the next 12 months. That works for me:)

Got the same response about the same time. Much better than Showtime free for a year. :D

I've got three months free of Showtime. After about one month, I still haven't found a movie worth watching. I did catch up with the new season of Nurse Jackie so it's not a complete waste.

I tried today. Struck out. They said I wasn't eligible. I have Showtime. I asked about cancelling and calling back tomorrow. She didn't find the humor in it. Best they could offer was 3 months free of Starz. Not worth the hassle.

Was told that was a new customer offer only. They did offer me $8 off/month for the next year though for being a loyal customer.

I don't think I watched Showtime once in the last year. Lots of 2 star movies and stuff I have no interest in.

Just called in and got the free 12 month deal. Not the best premium channel but at least I can record some movies I never got to see.
