Hi,

I just started a new service contract with Dish, and I got a promotional free trial with Blockbuster @home. I have no idea how to access the service. I tried multiple ways from my account at Dish but I am getting nowhere. Do I have to set up a separate account for Blockbuster?

Thanks!

Gianfranco

If I remember correctly, I logged into our account, and there was a red "Manage Queue" button. Then, I remember pressing an "Agree" button. Then, I was able to add movies and shows to the Queue. I moved the ones that had now for availability to the top of the list. I left the ones on short wait and long wait at the bottom. Then, I got an e-mail when the disc was sent out. Hope that helps!

I just do not know how to log into the BB@home account - do I create a new account for BB@home, or do I use the Dish account? Thanks!

User name and password are the same as your my dish account.

Sorry for being so thick, but I still cannot log into Blockbuster @home. I go to:


https://www.blockbus...home.com/signin

I enter my Dish user ID and PW and it does not work. I get a message to complete the registration on the Dish Web site, but there I am already registered for this service!

What am I missing???

Thanks!

Go to Mydish.com and login to your dish account.

Then click on manage queue and it should take you to the right place at blockbuster.

THANKS!!!!

That was the trick - I had to complete the registration from inside the Dish site, and the pop up blocker was preventing me from doing that.

I appreciate your help!
