Showtime Offered for Free But Charged
Posted 05 July 2012 - 08:13 AM
I 've just never heard of anyone getting offered some thing for free, end up being charged for it and then have DirecTv say "yeah, we see we offered you this for free, but we decided to charge you for it. That's just the way it is." By the way, I didn't ask for anything when I originally called to cancel the HD Extra Pak. They made the free Showtime offer unsolicited.

I had this happen to me twice. After that and getting them to note it in my file, they turn off.
Having said that, I have not gotten any in a long long time.
