    That's the most frustrating part of the whole thing is that they'll run a half hour of some bimbo bouncing up and down on a guy, don't worry she won't get pregnant, they're not really having sex, and they turn around and edit out a scene from a legitimate theatrical release. I did write them on this, no response.

    Too bad it's not STARZ. I had to remove it, because my bill would have been too high having tp pay $20.00 for HD.

    got mine last night via chat ..already had autopay and added paperless billing..
    funny that a person has to find out about these deals via forums instead of from Dish..i get no shortage of stuff from them about siging up a friend but a good deal like this is kept well hidden :)

    no ****..i havent watched Cinemax since I had via cable back in th e80's ..aside from the late night soft porn they used to show some good obscure horror and foreign flicks. Seems the bad soft core porn has been upped since then along with a lot of HBO throways. Anyway for 2 cents i wont complain much further

    Has anyone successfully signed up for this deal even though they had Cinemax within the last 6 months? I had the 3 months of free Cinemax/HBO/Showtime as a new subscriber, and we're only in our 4th month of service. Tried signing up via online chat and was denied because we had the Cinemax service within the last 6 months. Just wondering if it is worth my time to try playing CSR roulette, or if there is some other angle I should be trying to take to get this offer?

    Speaking of after hour shows, us on the left coast have these shows smack in the middle of dinner time, quickly learned not to venture into this channel at that time, and only record them and watch while kids are not around.

    One question, I have watched some similar shows during Showtime and maybe another free preview events, but never noticed an AO rated show shot in HD. On Cinemax there are a fair amount of HD soft porn, is this unique to Cinemax?

    I never found those shows worth extra money for but since it is free...:) I was surprised the wife was more excited by the HD AO shows, she made it a point of educating me what was fake what was real, I agreed to learn.

    The truth is she was just so happy I found this one for free for her, she has already packed the 622 HD full of recorded movies.

    Sounds like you're ready for the EHDD. Prices are pretty good right now.

    I have the 2nd 622 to fill up but until E* allows moving EHDD between my 622's I hesitate about adding EHDD.

    Ridgway,...
    Well I was denied because I had Cinemax in the last 6 months (part of my free movie package when I signed up but cancelled after the free trial period). Anyway, the CSR Chris K. said I can't get it. When I said that didn't seem very fair, he asked "anything else"? Guess not, chat session closed. Geeze.

    Chris K was the same online CSR I had. Must be a killjoy :|

    I'd think the primary motivation for Dish would be to eliminate mailing bills, and also setup for auto-pay to ensure timely receipt of payment. Apparently they'd rather give Cinemax away to people that haven't had it in the last six months. I guess that makes sense to someone.

    Just signed up. Took about 5 minutes, when I hung up the phone, Cinemax HD was blue and good to go.

    I just happened to call dish about my bill. the CSR from India told me about the Cinimax offer. I just could not believe that would give it away. I thought I was not understanding her correctly.
    I called back and hooked up with a tech support person, they are here in America. She said that was a new deal they are doing. I had auto pay so they turned them on for me.

    Hmmm...I may be screwed. I signed up with AT&T/Dish Network and my satellite fee is bundled with the rest of the contents (high speed and local phone service). Anyone else out there sharing this same scenario and got the deal?

    ...And due to the recent rain pour in the SF Bay Area, my 110 is down (no HBO and no local channels). Bummer. :(

    Wow.. Thank You all for this information. I was already signed up for auto-pay, but had no idea about this offer. I opened a chat and they set me up in 5 minutes...

    Happy New Year Everyone

    I kept putting it off expecting there to be a catch. Finally called. Couldn't figure out how to do the online chat which would have been better. Hard to understand her, but I am supposed to be set up also! A penny a month for the next 2 years is a good deal since I already had both paperless billing and autopay.

    Thanks for the thread!

    It's even better than you think.

    It's a penny a year for the next two years.
