    That's excellent news to know. I'll definitely keep an eye on my bill for October. I do have the info of the CSR who helped me, so maybe that will make things easier if I'm caught in the same boat. Thanks for the heads up!

    So my parents were offered Sunday Ticket for free today but no deal on max. She got other credits and hbo too, but my question is, when they go online they seem stream on any device under Max and not under basic. When I was at their site before, it clearly showed the only difference for Max was red zone and fantasy channel. I asked the person at DTV today when she gave us the deal and she said streaming is included in the base package. Anyone know forsure?

    I also got the same deal as you and paid the first payment last month, after reading your post I checked recent activities yesterday. All my regular charges showed up but as you the NFLSTM charge wasn't there. I waited until today when my statement got emailed to me and it's listed in the statement as payment 2 of 4 $24.99.

    So I was right and I didn't have STMax for free. But because I had it written in the notes, I managed to get the 4x 24.99 deal for Max, but in addition to signing an additional 1 year contract (Moving my contract 3 days later), I got an additional $20 off for 12 months.

    So paying $99 for ST Max and getting $1,002 in discounts for the year.

    So I waited until my contract was up and the deals got better!
    I did a chat with Billing Agent and got regular ST for free and $10 off for 12 months. I asked for retention and was offered regular ST for free and $65 off per month for 12months with a new 1 year commitment. I could have added Max for $24.99 X4 but only thing I'm missing is Red Zone channel.
    BTW this is in addition to a prior $10/month off I got chatting last week. It was a long process this year but I'm happy

    I was told the same thing ST MAX for free this year and got the CSR name and employee number to verify and she made notes on my account. TODAY my statement comes online, and I GET a first installment charge of $62.99 (with 5 more to come). Called and was on the phone for over an hour and 20 minutes and could get no satisfaction out of any supervisor. They admit that the CSR made a mistake but will not honor her mistake and could not give me anything off the price . I told him I wanted her boss to call me and explain to me how I could not be compensated in anyway for her mistake

    Keep on them, try chat, and call. This happened last year to me when i took the movers deal. I have left many comments on here but to sum it up, was offered basically a new customer deal with movers deal. Sunday Ticket Max (mid 350 value) was free. However, when they came to install my move, they said I was only upgraded for free but I had to pay the original Sunday Ticket. It took forever, many calls, chats, and it honestly was a nightmare. I did end up getting it for free.

    Well, my first "at bat" of the year went like this. Called the "5000" number and asked them about my contract expiration date. They transferred me to retention. Spoke with the nice lady for about 20 minutes altogether. My prob is my contract does not expire until Sept. 1st so she said she would extend my current discount of $50 for another month because I have to call back around the 10th (retention) and then the great offers would be available. She did offer STMAX for 6x29.99 which I declined. Told her I would like everything to be the same as last time (ST free, STMAX for 4x$24.99 and $50x12mo discount off my plan)and she said she put notes on my account and when I call back they will have better offers since I was a loyal customer. Hung up and received email stating the $50 discount like she said. So, I have to wait until the 10th to find out what I can get. Personally, I think the MAX is a rip at almost any price. You just get the RedZone (love that) and Fantasy. It is weird for me to call and act like I don't know how it all works (I do) and sometimes it seems they know what I am up to. But hey, I am just trying to get the best bang for my buck, isn't everyone? Gotta admit, I am a grown man and I get nervous when I do this every year...LOL

    Did you have ST last season? It auto-renews and after the beginning of the season, you 'can't cancel it' and get a refund. The season starts Sep 7th.

    Yes I had ST last year. I am not trying to cancel it, I am trying to get it FREE again. She said I was not on auto-renew because I asked and my bill does not show that at the bottom either.. I will call back before the 7th and then things will be opened up for offers. My post never mentioned "cancel" nor "refund". Thanx

    Unless you've cancelled ST since the end of last season, it is on Auto-renewal.

    Usually.

    I'd check that again looking at a couple of your past bills and looking at your online statements. Just to make sure.

    Because if it is on auto-renewal and you do nothing, your ability to negotiate on Sep 10th is probably non-existent.

    If THIS is true for DirecTV Now, it'd be a big of a kick for all of us still on DirecTV who have been pining for a way to buy RedZone as a standalone. Imagine a world where we don't have to haggle on an annual basis to get a $380 package at a discount to watch one channel that's only $7-$10 a month via other providers...

    DirecTV Now reportedly adding RedZone and NFL Network, but Sunday Ticket unlikely
    DirecTV Now reportedly adding RedZone and NFL Network, but Sunday Ticket unlikely

    "Just in time for football season, DirecTV NOW will reportedly add RedZone and NFL Network to its streaming service, fixing one of the streaming service’s major drawbacks for sports fans.

    One subscriber screen-grabbed a conversation he had with a DirecTV NOW representative, where she informed him that the network appears to have an announcement planned for within the next week."

    Yeah, I had it last year, but the CSR at Retention assured me that ST was NOT on auto-renewal. I ask about STMAX and she said the same, no auto-renewal and offered me it for 6 x $29.99 which I declined. Check bill today and only still lists STMAX for 2017 with no authorize button nor renewal statement anywhere. That means either it will disappear from my bill or be a full price addition automatically. What I found strange was her telling me to call after the 10th, when my contract is up on the 1st. The 10th is AFTER the 7th (opening day for NFL) which means they could sneak the auto-renew in there and when I call on the 10th, I will be too late to cancel it. Sounds devious, but my antenna is up at all times! I am calling on the 2nd and after that if needed. I can cancel my whole subscription if I choose between the 2nd and the 7th without any penalty. I sure miss the old cracked card days!

    Whenever you order NFL Sunday Ticket Max DIRECTV sends a e-mail to you confirming the order. In that message it states "NFL Sunday Ticket Max will automatically renew each season at the price then in effect".

    Even a page I saw from 2006 had DIRECTV all in caps in several places.

    I just got free stand-alone RedZone Chanel via Chat. I was told they had no Sunday Ticket offers then asked about stand alone RedZone. It took about 10 minutes for the guy to come back but he gave it to me no problem. Your mileage my vary.
