    What did D* give me for my birthday? The called me today and offered me the new customer deal of NFLST and 5 months of free Premium programming. Yes, my birthday was yesterday and no, I don't think it had anything to do with the offer. But it was nice.

    Hey my birthday was in June - I wish I'd get that same call. I'd say YES in a heartbeat!

    My birthday was two weeks ago and all I got from DirecTV was the bill.

    Are you on a grandfathered base pkg? (Total Choice or Total Choice +)
    If so, THAT'S probably why you got the call - D* is doing everything they can to force people off those legacy packages. Once you switch over to Premier, you will NEVER be able to go back to your legacy pkg again.
    I get these calls about once a year & will NOT be switching until I HAVE to... ;)

    I believe that is why it was offered to me last year. I gladly gave up my old package as my bill only increased a dollar per month which was well worth ST for a season and the extra channels in Premier for 5 months.

    Make sure it was really D* that called you. This happened to me last year at this same time of the year and when I tried to call D* back to take them up on the offer, I found out it was a 3rd party dealer that had called and left the message...

    My birthday was yesterday, but I was notified that I would be receiving the Red Zone Channel for free earlier this week. :D

    No. We actually just downgraded from the premiere package a coupld of months ago because we just didn't watch enough of the premuim channels.
