    I know this is an old thread, but why open a new one for the same subject?

    DirecTV has sent me a card announcing my free gift of 3 free months of over 10 additional movie channels (basically Starz). Anyway I don't get two of the channels (the two east coast feeds of Starz Encore and TMC). No matter, as I'm not interested in additional movie channels. I did send the re-authorizations to my two DVRs.

    I'd rather get a gift that is more worthwhile, like $10 off for 3 months.

    I know this is a way to potentially get me to upgrade my subscription once the freebie time period is over. Not gonna work with me.

    I just got my anniversary gift and it is 4 weeks (any 4 I choose) of the Sunday Ticket. I doubt I will watch it but the thought is good. Now I got figure out how to order 4 weeks of the Sunday Ticket.

    This is what I received as well. Not much time to use it as I end up working overtime almost every Sunday.. Thanks anyway D*! I'll probably set it up during December either way. It is a very nice gift.

    For the second straight year I got 3 months free of Game Lounge. Which I'll never use. They keep trying to entice me to tune into Game Lounge, I WON'T DO IT! :lol:

    WHY DOES DIRECTV THINK I WATCH SPORTS?

    They did this to me last time for my Gift (free Sports Pack).

    This time I got the NFL for 4 weeks.

    I complained last time to them, they said there was nothing they could do.

    I watch is MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES.

    Why cant we choose our free gift up to a certain value.

    I repeat. I am not a sports fan. Every one is different. The NFL package for 4 weeks is like worth what, $80. I could of used a lot of PPV for that.

    They should some how allow us to swap gifts. Wish they were gift cards I could mail you mine. Looks like there tied to our account numbers.

    Just got a letter/flyer in the mail yesterday saying we got 3 free Cinema PPV movies for being a loyal customer. I think we have been with them for 11 years if I remember right.

    I looked at my November online stmnt. Indicates Showtime with a 0.00 as of yesterday. I have not received any notification of this particular gift, but I am grateful! I tried Showtime, and it is active on my system. I have been a customer since 1999. Thank you....

    When I hit my 12th anniversary, I got $ 5 off for 12 months which I was happy to take. I think the gift depends how long you've been with them and what you spend per month.

    A friend of mine just got the four free games from NFLST. We were both curious how this works. Do you get four free weeks of ST or is it four specific games? The note my friend got talked about how he could order it by remote, as if it were a pay per view. But, of course, that's not possible. Anyone with any experience with this gift?

    I just got my bill and saw that I had been given the sports pack for 3 months as my anniversary gift. I called to ask if I coudl change it and was told no. Which is pretty stupid if you ask me. If you are going to give me something for 3 months that normally costs $12.99, you should let me swap it for a movie package that costs the same.

    I also got the old line about how you are already getting a discount for free HD for 24 months, so I can’t add any additional discounts to your bill.

    I thought they had stopped the gifts. I didn't get anything this year. Last year I had Showtime for 3 months. I do pay my bill on time. Oh well.
