    I've been taking this pack on/off my account every 3 months for longer than I can remember. Took it off today and no more $0 for 3 months.

    I also cancelled about two weeks ago and then signed up for the free three months. Did you cancel online or call in? I called in to cancel, I did notice that I had to speak to a person this time who tried to upsell me. Always before I could use the voice prompts.

    Same here. To add again it's now 4.99. I'll try again in a few days to see if the 3 months is back.

    I went through the same thing a few months back. I waited a few days until there was something I wanted to record, then tried again and got the 3 months free again.

    yup, woke up early to renew for the next three months (cancelled a couple days ago) and it's gone. I'll keep checking, but fear all good things must end and that time is now...

    Yup, still gone and showing $4.99 this morning. I had been removing it and instantly putting it right back on previously. I never waited.

    They might have taken away that free trial when they updated their website to redirect almost everything to AT&T except for Account Management and Streaming. My mother recently got this trial but that was when the website was still a full D* site.

    A few weeks ago I cancelled HD Extra for the first time and didn't get the free option until the day my new billing period started (which was about 10 days).

    I wonder why they still have the HD Extra Pack since that was done when HD channels were first coming out. Now the HD Extra Pack shouldn't be anything special those channels should be just like the other HD channels.

    Most HD channels have SD counterparts. HD Extra Pack channels have no SD counterparts. That's what makes them special.

    I'm good on free HD Extra until 5/21. I guess I'll find out then when I try to take it off and add it if this is still a problem.

    Our local cable company has something similar but its $10 a month for things like HDNet Movies, MTV Live, Universal HD, and a few others. DirecTV's is a better value but still I think these channels should be absorbed into other packages.

    Has anybody had any luck getting the 3 months free in the last few weeks? I seem to have lost that option as well.

    Universal HD is going away on 7/15/17 and it's unlikely that Olympic channel will go into the HD pack.

    It's gone. My three free months was up on June 15th. I also noticed the DogTV 1 month free option is gone too. AT&T is tightening up the ship and taking away promotions. It's still ridiculous that Premier subs don't get those HD channels, when other tiers have access to some of them.

    Oh well.......

    Called in on Tuesday and got it free for 3 months and without asking the lady also gave me the usual 6 month discount for premier package. Which just got over when I called in 6 months ago to get it.
