    Or so says my supervisor. I haven't seen anything official from Dish about it yet though, however as i'm quickly checking their website I don't see it mentioned there anymore either. Seems rather abrupt, i'm pretty sure I had seen that it was supposed to run until the end of the current promo (Jan 31, 2010) before. So I wonder what brought this on all the sudden?

    Probably boards like this spreading the word causing people to ask for it.

    As far as I know they were never trying to keep it a secret, for that matter they advertised it. They were using it as a way to encourage people to sign up for autopay w/ paperless billing.

    So does over mean no new signups or does it mean the channels go away. Can't say I will miss them, rarely anything worthwhile to watch. Clearly no good movies.

    It can no longer be added. Existing users will probably see it drop off after their year is up, depending on when they added it.

    Interesting. Dish definitely wasn't keeping this a secret as the last bill I got came with one of those "share with your friends" certificates that listed out all the available offers your friend can get for signing up, and the penny Cinemax offer was on that form.

    Since Dish has 5 channels of Cinemax and DirecTV only has 3 channels that should make it worth 2 cents?.;):D

    Well, maybe more that $.02! :)

    I'm sorry to see this go. It was a good deal for Dish and us, they get the certainty of autopay, we get a marginal movie channel for nearly free. Nice trade-off.

    I wonder how many will actually change from autopay with no incentive to do so?

    I was on autopay for years before I knew about the promo as I am for nearly all of my recurring bills.

    If you go to the DISH website and go through the motions of ordering new service, the Cinemax for a penny offer still comes up on the last page just before you commit to the service. I'd say it is still available online right now (5PM eastern) despite what some people are saying.

    You could always (at least for the past year or so) add Cinemax for a penny for new customers ordering online.
