    Mine said FREE for 3 months. I'll surely be cancelling it on day 87! LOL

    Also, you can't cancel the trial until after day 32.

    Sorry to bump such an old thread, but it looks like this has indeed been fixed. You must now call to remove it (email works too). I haven't tried to add it back and probably won't. Clicking 2 buttons every 3 months for the past 5 years was much easier than calling is going to be. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

    I do it every 3 months. Call DTV, and tell the electronic voice "Remove HD Extra Pack". It asks you yo confirm, say "Yes". Wait 10 minutes or so, go to your online account, and you`ll see that DTV offers you 3 free months. Add it to your account, and you`re good for 3 more months.

    May sound stupid and cheap (it does save $70+ year), but it`s also a good way for me to check the autopay, etc, and make sure everything is still OK.

    Awesome! Thanks twiseguy. I didn't realize you could do that in the automated system.

    I just did the trick an hour or so ago. Clicked to remove it from my programming then went back to my programming and added it back for $0.00 for 3 months.

    That's really not a trick I have been doing that for well over a year now since I started doing most everything online.
