Skyfall and Argo are older movies?
Didn't they both just get their PPV/DVD releases?

DISH has done the 99c movie offer before. Hopefully they will do it again. Hopefully they will not do it the day after I pay $5.99 for a VOD rental. :)

I love the Red box really cheap rental.  I hope dish keeps doing this.

If they can make a profit at like RedBox  it I bet they will.

I was all set to rent a couple of these until I read about the the impending equipment fee increase. Now, even 99 cents is too much.

Don't so picky - it's absolut minimal price what you could get for HD movie (perhaps some XXX for 2 cents, but I saw that only once in 12+ years).

The DVDs were released Feb 12th & Feb 19th, respectfully.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

If that is "older" then movies get old pretty quick. :)

Did these change?  I see 4 movies I never heard of on 502-505.  Is there a Dish schedule somewhere (since I have all the PPV locked out, but I'll unlock any 99 cent HD channels.

That's true.  I was hoping it was a permanent thing.  They'd do so much more volume at 99 cents compared to $6-$7!  I've never rented a PPV movie, but at 99 cents I'd do at least 2 per week.  They're going to have to start adding 99 cent channels to compete with Netflix, Amazon and the like.  I dropped BB today, may roll back Top250 to 120 soon.  So much streaming content available!
