    Was already under contract until 2010. It took a total of 3 tries on different days but CSR Roulette paid off. FWIW, my best previous offer came on a Sunday and today was a breeze. Just said I had seen the ads and wondered if I could get it. CSR instantly said "sure".

    Sunday Ticket
    free SuperFan
    free HD Extra Pack for 3 months
    free Premier

    $74.99 a month for 4 months. The CSR was really nice and I didn't try to push for the free HD access or free DVR.

    I'd like to get the same deal but I don't know what the result would be after the 4 months when we downgrade from the Premier package. We'd have to go tothe Choice Plus but I can't find a price anywhere. Anyone know how much that is & if the change from Total Choice to Choice Plus results in any channel loss?: Doesn't look like it but I'm not positive.

    already a Premier sub and already have superfan and the Ticket, called to cancel the ticket and get a addtl HD box and the CSR waived the box fee and superfan fee on first call. It sounds like they are dying to give away superfan. Before I finished saying i was calling to cancel the ticket the guy offered free superfan, then I said i was actually calling to get a another HD box too(for the Ticket to have multiple tvs and games on at once) and if he gave both for free If would stay on the Ticket!!! i love this country

    ok - I called D* a few weeks ago about Sunday Ticket and they really had no deals. I noticed that some have mentioned getting free DVR with Premier and I noticed I was getting charged for both so called 800-531-5000 to check on it. Found out free DVR was just limited time only for new subscribers BUT I figured I would give the Sunday Ticket offer a shot - so here is what happened:

    Called about above
    Said I also want to ask about getting Sunday Ticket - I see offers for around $75 for 4 payments and it includes Premier.
    Took a minute to look through the account and was told - sure, let me get that set up for you but you need to understand Premier goes back to $104 in 4 mths. Ummm, sure no problem was my reply!

    So she sets up Sunday Ticket with premier free for 4 mths - as we hang up she asks is there anything else I need. I respond, no - just does all the HD games show up on separate channels? and she says yes, you will get them like the other channels that have an HD and SD channel.

    Just went and checked my account online and yep - there it is - Sunday Ticket at 74.99 AND SUPERFAN AT $0. I officially didn't even bring up superfan.

    So your mileage may vary but I am very happy!!!

    I called in and got this deal but it looks like they forgot the superfan so I'll have to try and get that added now. Was really pretty easy. I called in and just said I was interested in the sunday ticket and asked if i qualified for any promos.

    Edit CSR replied to my email and added free Super Fan to the account so it looks like I'm set to enjoy lots of football!!!

    So I tried one last time to get the ST, SF, Premier deal and still no bite after three attempts. I did receive the deal last year (my first year of ST), so maybe it's only a one time deal for those who have never had ST?

    I'm also wondering if more people are getting the deal at night rather than during the day.

    Nope, I also have only been a subscriber since December of 2007 and just signed another 2 year commetment, so you do not have to be out of contract.

    I haven't seen it being mentioned explicitly ( although I haven't read all the posts); but for people who have gotten this, has your contract being extended?

    I was told that the deal was not going to extend my contract, only hardware could do that.

    I called the 531-5000 number. I talked to 4 CSR's because I start with one who gets my information & then sends me to (I assume) retention. I had to do this twice because the iPhone sucks as a phone, so that's why 4 CSR's. I was able to get:
    ST for $74.99 for 4 months
    Free Premier
    Free DVR Service
    Free Superfan
    I did not ask for the SF until they agreed to the ST deal & we were finishing up. I just said that I had seen where people had gotten it & just wanted to see if I could as well.
    To the people here who work at DirecTV -- the CSR's were all exceptionally polite & friendly. Even if I hadn't gotten the package, I would not have been able to complain about the service. A++.

    Did you get the same Premier, ST deal last year or just purchased ST for full price. I'm just trying to figure out why I have not been able to get the deal this year even though I received the deal last year.
