    Not sure what exactly you mean with the word
    " complimentary" or length either.

    But,
    currently :

    Ultimate all included.
    HBO / HBO max
    Dog tv
    EpiX
    Sunday Ticket - Max
    4 irds
    ---
    10$ plus 1$. Complete

    However : ( August 2nd :
    this was received in an email of various topics)

    -----

    "........due to these business changes, we are evaluating our ******** ********. Nothing will change for now for "***********,*******
    ........... currently receiving TV discounts. We’ll provide an update in the 4th quarter "

    -----

    Please understand the vagueness.

    All Directv employees get free accounts with premier and most all sports packs.

    Depends where/ who ya get your check from.

    The above cost and programming I listed comes from a check issued by T for instance - not D.
    With the D service discounts above
    ( Can choose "D stream" as well structured a little different)
    There is :
    -1/2 off cell service
    ( w/ various accessory and EQ discounts)
    - HSI discounts.
    ( Here as example 22$ & change total with free voip line)

    So, the origination of the check gets a single play or a triple play discount of sorts I guess you'd say and there Is wording that says " legacy " when referring to certain employees post buyout

    The warning email concerning the corp funding and split ownership in coexistence with the programing & cost perks with imminent quarter 4 changes to video perks.... ?
    We shall see .

    I had the premier pack free and basically paid for EPIX, additional receivers, DVR, HD, HD EXTRA Pack and the protection plan.

    For 11 receivers it was $132/mo

    They just recently shut it off after 11 years.

    I told them to keep it shut off, as I was not going to pay $300/mo.

    I didn’t care for any of the sports packages and never watch the movie channels.

    I have a bundle with Comcast and TiVo and it runs me $125 including internet and 225 channels.

    I just put some minis in the other rooms and everyone in my family is happy.

    I really just wanted to see if anyone else got shut down. I’m surprised my account was on as long as it was. Should have been shut down years ago.

    As far as the other discounts I was going to switch my cell phones to them for the 55% off. However I heard horror stories from other people who switched because of the discount and then 6 months later told they didn’t qualify anymore and had their bill jacked up to full price.

    Seasonal
    Not that it matters anymore but were you still on Legacy billing, and I assume because of your duration that all the receivers were owned?

    Legacy billing!

    I fought them for years wanting to combine billing with my internet. I knew once the messed with the account the discount would go away.

    I think all the equipment is leased, I did end up buying it all out right. I doubt besides the HR54 they want back the HR24’s and H25’s. If they send me a box they can have all of it.

    They did call me today asking if I wanted to reactivate service. Told them to leave it disconnected.

    Besides the box at my cabin, I rarely watched it to begin with. A have a TiVo with a cable card
