Not sure if it is because I am still under contract until 2010.
I then asked them if there was anything else they could do to make me happy, as I felt I shouldn't be paying for hockey that was previously free with the package I subscribe to. They then offered me free DVR service for 6 months (@$6 per month) and Starz free for 3 months. So, with the $120 (6 months @ $20 per month) and $36 (6 months @ $6 per month), I think I will pay a total of around $8.00 for CI and Startz for 3 months....I said OK. Just sharing my experience for others who may want to call DirecTV.
I believe that part of it has to do with your tenure with them. My dad has had two accounts with them (two different houses) for several years... (btw they added free CI to both accounts)
