ugh after looking into it, it's 2 months free but I'd have to sub for 4 months. Eh... I'll wait. Already spend enough money on TV with one provider. If DirecTV doesn't offer the HD, usually there's an HD rip online to download. DirecTV isn't bad... Just wish they had a few more HD basics. Other than that I'm pretty happy with the service. 10 or more new HD though could go a long way.
