So I get a call yesterday thanking me for being a loyal DirecTV subscriber (yeah, for 47 days now) and was offered a free three-month trial of the HD Extra Pack, with $4.99 to kick in come March. I had been thinking about trying that out anyway, as a few days ago when I was looking at my account information online there was a button to try it for three months. I agreed to let him turn it on, and the nine additional channels were there when I got home last evening. I looked at "My Programming" today, and it still offers the button to turn it on. In other words, it doesn't seem to reflect that I already have it. Hopefully it just hasn't shown up yet in there, and all will be well. It seemed odd to get a solicitation call for such a small item. No pitch to upgrade my package or hardware, optional services, etc.; just the HDEPack offer. I figure it must not be a scam because I wasn't asked for any "privileged" information like a credit card or account number, which they obviously already know, and the channels are working. Is this common? Do they routinely call customers to pitch little add-ons like this? Are they still gonna screw it up?
