    For some reason I now have free HD extra pack. I didn't ask for it and it's not my anniversary gift. Anybody know why this would happen? D* didn't even tell me they were doing it.

    Somewhere in your youth, or childhood, you must have done something good.

    Keep an eye on this... you may have been signed up for a 3-month trial. Make sure you watch your bill and cancel it if there's ever a charge, presuming you don't want to keep it.

    They can just sign you up for this stuff? I'll have to keep an eye out for that!

    They should not be able to do that, but mistakes happen.

    I have good equipment, but an "economy" $30 package that is not promoted. It gets me the networks, Weather Channel, and a few others. I don't get CNN, Fox or TNT. But, they offered me free HD Extra Pack 6 months ago for 6 months. I called last week to cancel rather than pay. The CSR answered with an offer to extend it another 6 months for free. For me, it seems easy to get for free.

    I would give DirecTV a call and have them explain it.

    I did the three month free offer and then cancelled via my account info on the website. They stated they have ended the service and it has was taken off the bill. For some reason though they have not taken down the channels, I am still getting them and not being charged.

    I'm also getting the HD pack free.

    I was originally on the 3 month free trial. I forgot to cancel and started getting charged for it. I went in and cancelled it online. I'm still getting the channels (no longer being charged) and I also have an option online to add the HD pack "free for 3 months".

    Not sure what is going on.

    Consider yourself lucky.
    I canceled the HD Extra Pack online yesterday. Ten minutes later the channels were gone and there was a $2.99 partial month credit in my account.

    I've stopped accepting any offers since it was so difficult to cancel them afterwards.
    What should be a simple phone call turned into unauthorized billing for three months, five phone calls and many, many minutes repeating my situation and being told it will be ok "next time".

    Difficult? Canceling HD Extra Pack online took about a minute.

    I also called and canceled HBO, which took a couple minutes. Apparently you can't cancel the premiums online. I'll sign up again this fall when the second season of Boardwalk Empire begins.
