    Got my standard "Your Latest News and Offers" email from D* today with the following:

    Cinemax® 3 Months Free Offer

    Order Cinemax now and get 3 months FREE. Action, romance, or comedy - whatever you are in the mood for, you'll find it here. Cinemax® Ch. 515 - 523


    The link goes to a screen that doesn't seem to mention this offer.

    Anyone know anything about it?

    thnx

    I think if you order HBO you get 3 months of free Cinemax. Not sure of just adding Cinemax free for 3 months though without having to subscribe to HBO.

    I called in and it's a standalone offer for Cinemax, in the form of a $10 per month credit. Need to call up and cancel before the 3 months expire if you don't want to keep and pay for it.

    I wouldn't mind checking out Stike Back, so I called but they couldn't "find" the offer in the system. They advised I call back tomorrow.

    Called in and was told I'm not eligible. My intolerance with DirecTV is rising.

    Because you don't qualify for the same gift as another customer? :nono2:


    Customer gifts are often tied to info about their acct., like length of stay as customer, monthly programming they carry, etc....

    I just find it strange....it says free Cinemax for 3 months along with all of the usual PPV announcements, but the link takes me to a page that doesn't even mention it.

    I guess I'll have to call them and see exactly how it works.....

    Then if this is so, why don't they say "for those who qualify" or some such? They give the impression that anyone can get it, so they raise expectations, which are deflated upon hearing the bad news.

    I don't mind not being eligible for a certain offer; I just want to be told about it upfront!

    I boycott cinemax since they are not OAR fans.

    I called and they could only find the HBO + Cinemax offer, which is strange since the email never mentioned HBO at all. O well.

    As a Dish subscriber, they used to give us Cinemax for a penny a year. In the two years I had it for free, I don't think I really watched one of their movies. Most of them are grade B action flicks. They have a lot of soft core porn on at night as well.

    I called back today and was told the only way I could get it was to drop my free ST To-Go offer; so I opted to keep To-Go. I also have 12 months of free Showtime from the deal a few months back.

    Oh well, can't get everything for free.
