    I noticed that I am receiving Showtime now so I went to my account online and see the "Thanks for being a loyal customer since 2005. Stay tuned for anniversary gift" but no mention of what that gift might be. Under 'Activity since last bill" there is an entry for "Showtime-charge, price$0.00 tax$0.00". No idea how long it will last but even if it is only for one month thats O.K. with me. I never got anything from Time Warner.

    My anniversary was in December...and I completed the online "Thanks" link page.

    To my surprise...3 months later....I got a "present" today via UPS ground (with the Thank You postcard on top of a box). :)

    Since I'm headed to the airport...I'll have to open it and check it out upon my return.

    That gift delivered via UPS is a result of you filling out an online survey for DirecTV and not related to your anniversary. The anniversary gift / perks are free programming options like 3 months of Showtime, etc...

    The thank you for doing the survey gift is a portable DVD player. Got mine today.

    I've been with them since 2001 and haven't ever gotten anything. Hopefully that qualifies me for a free HD upgrade. LOL!

    I subscribed to the emails, but I've never been sent one. And, yes, I've checked my spam filter. I've been a customer since 2001 and the only thing I've received from them is the necessity to reset my receiver 20 times in the past four days.

    Customer since 3/1995 and just received a card for 3 free PPV movies. I also got a free HD DVR last fall for being a loyal customer.

    I just got 3 free months of Starz, however I was already subscribed to Starz. When I pointed this out in an email sent from the feedback page, they disconnected my Starz incurring a $10 disconnect fee. Strange way to handle the situation.

    I was already a Showtime subscriber when I was awarded three months of Showtime. I phoned and the CSR simply gave me three months of Starz instead of Showtime. You might try a call. ;)

    Interesting that some have reported getting three months of Showtime. I just got 12 months of it. :)

    I'm listed as a subscriber since March 2004, but in reality other than a hiatus of about 7-8 months (when we suffered with TWC until I trimmed some trees in our new house to give the dish a clear view of the south), we've been with D* since 1997.
