    I just called Dish, got a $35.00 credit to my account, no questions or proof of purchase necessary. :) Thank you Dish!

    They have no value there for me, but still think it should be an option only regardless of 'package'. If Dish said they would remove them from my account and reduce my bill $1 a month, I'd likely jump at it. :)

    They are now losing out in terms of total numbers of subscribers, but that's what happens when you try to get too many eggs in the basket.

    Wow! What package do you have? In or out of contract? I think it depends on which CSR you get...

    I agree! It's no big deal.

    Yes, but they are splitting the season (the show's last) and showing 8 episodes this summer and the final 8 next summer.

    As soon as I get my dish installed I will have to go after that credit. I do like the walking dead and breaking bad. But that's all I like on AMC. Everything else was just not worth it.

    I have enough integrity NOT to call for something like that.

    If I were to lose Dish completely for 3 or 4 days, I might consider calling for a credit, but not because of a couple of hours of programs that I don't even watch. That just seems opportunistic.

    My big issue since switching from Direct in May (to save money). I now will have to pay over $60 additional on Amazon to watch my favorite shows on AMC in HD. For myself I add this to my price on the 250 tier w/ HD free per month.

    I thought Amazon Prime was $79 a year. Or are you talking about buying DVD's?

    A whole season of Breaking Bad is just over $30 in HD. And you don't have to be a prime member.

    Amazon Prime offers a free month, if you buy in you get 2 day shipping, unlimited streaming, books on line. Since I live in the sticks we order from them often, it's worked out for me. :)

    At the other site, there are some reporting that Dish is giving them a Roku XD and $60 worth of credits. That would certainly pay for quite a few shows from Amazon or iTunes.

    As to Amazon Prime, well not everything is free after you pays your money, including most, if not all of AMC's stuff. Better to get the series or some such.

    As a note, I tested out both iTunes and AMC, their SD is every bit as good as the HD provided by AMC and BBCA, imo. So you can save yourself some bucks that way too.
