We subscribed to HBO for the half priced ($9 per month deal) and then were able to renew it at that price. The deal just ran out, so I declined to keep subscribing at $18 per month. For what we watch, that is a bit high.

 

However, for us it is worth perhaps $9 or $10 per month - are there any deals these days which would allow us to get it for that price? (without a package deal with, e.g., other premiums like Showtime.)

 

Thanks

Not sure, definitely seems like HBO is the hardest to get any sort of deal on. Ive had plenty of success with the others, Ive had Showtime for free for the past year by calling every three months or so to keep it going and usually ask about HBO. Other than a combo offer with Cinemax Ive gotten no offers other than full price.

Yep, just went to the Dish sit, went on Chat, in 5 minutes they offered the half price deal for 6 months. Very cool!
