When I was getting movies in my queue that say unavailable, before I put them in my queue it said "dvd ships in 1-2 days". These are more obscure titles, definitely not newly released or titles that have not been released yet. I like the really "bad" 60's and 70's horror titles, like those from something weird studios, these titles all said available in the info box but unavailable when in my queue. If they are unavailable it should say so in the info box! It is nearly impossible to browse titles with any kind of speed, if you don't know what you might want to rent the website blows.

I was going to complete registration for BMP until I read the agreement. As I read it, this current "free with my Platinum HD for the same $10/month with a name change" is going to end at some point and I'll be billed another monthly charge unless I anticipate the ending and cancel BMP. I'm always suspicious of so-called freebies, which is why I didn't rush to register right away.

I have AEP, free HD, and Movie Pass currently on my bill. My receiver is not internet connected and I probably won't invest in the hardware to do that any time soon. I might use the mailed DVD service a little, but I don't want a higher monthly DISH bill in a few months. And I don't trust DISH to warn me before they slap another monthly fee on for BMP.

Am I reading the terms of this "free" offer correctly or just paranoid?
