    Is there some promotion going on or freeview??


    Getting channels not in my package...

    I’m on the Select package but I’m getting lots of channels (DIY, Cooking, AHC, NatGeo Wild, etc) that were not previously in my package. Is this coronavirus related?? I’m even getting the Movies Extra package. I confirmed on AT&T’s app that I’m indeed only on the Select package, no extras...

    Most likely you're getting these channels because of the pandemic. AT&T/DIRECTV's way of helping people cope with social distancing.

    Those of us with the Premier package get nothing but our bill that is not even right. Charged me for MLBEI and there is no baseball. Now I have call and get someone who knows how to remove it.

    You could lower your package for a few months to save the $$$, since they’re free for now...

    The MLB season hasn't officially canceled yet, just postponed.

    If you've been playing the game right you're most likely not even paying for them in full, we never have.
    $7 off CINEMAX for 6 months (6 of 6)
    $7 off HBO for 6 months (6 of 6)
    $7 off SHOWTIME for 6 months (6 of 6)
    $7 off STARZ for 6 months (6 of 6)
    $5 off SPORTS PACK for 6 months (6 of 6)
    Rinse and repeat for about about 15 years.

    Well I just checked the high 500 channels and I am getting the Movies Extra Pack. Is anyone else getting these channels right now?

    this last freeview didn't end when i was suppose to, which is sort of nice now that all the others ones have.

    Thanks for the replies. I am still getting the "Movies Extra Pack" like I said earlier & just don't want to be charged for them because I know I don't subscribe to that package. It's nice to be receiving them though.

    I get that. Just check your account online and make sure there isn't a promotion tied in, and you should be good
