    Maybe I got the dates wrong, but I don't think I have been paying full price for more than 6 months. But you did say calender year. I got it once in 2004 and now 2005. ($20 has already been taken off my next bill.) At any rate, The Bird, should be eligible.

    Also the credit will quietly disappear from your bill without warning if you make any changes to your subscription.

    Hi all,

    This is my first post on this site after two years of browsing and getting wonderful information.

    I just received my second 6 mo. discount today after receiving one back in May 2003. It is awesome what one can receive just by asking! Thanks for the heads up, folks!

    Also, I have had two RCA DVR40's since Dec. 2003 and have loved every minute. Tivo has definately changed the way I watch television. I can never go back to standard TV. My family and I won't know what to do if that ever happens.

    Thanks to everyone for the wealth of information located in this message board community!

    I'll report that I did receive my second 6 month $20 month Premier discount starting in December 2004 but it disappeared in January! So, I've emailed customer service (which is how I got the second 6 month deal)...more info to follow, I suspect.

    Can someone detail me as to exactly what this promotion is? This is a LONG thread ;)

    How long do I have to agree to subscribe to Total Choice Premium after the promotion period expires ?

    I have TC Plus w/locals + HBO + Cinemax and FOX Network from NYC/LA now, and two DTivo's. My current bill is $ 74.22/mo (incl tax).

    $20 off total choice premier for 6 months - you have to agree to an additional 1 year comitment.. they waive the $4.99 tivo fee too (you still pay 4.99 for the reciever though)

    Got my $20 off today. I called and the 1st Csr knew nothing about. I asked for customer retention. The 2nd Csr in customer retention department said she could offer it to me. I had never taken advantage of this before so it was real easy , ask and you shall recieve. I love DTV and Tivo.

    YEah. D* billing is interesting.. you almost need to be a CPA to read the bill. You SHOULD see the full boat price for all the things you have ( premier, etc) and you should also see an entry -$20.00 ( A Credit) to your account, and that would be the $20 off.

    Any way to get this deal as a relatively new (first full month still) customer - or do I need to wait until next year when my contract is up?

    I am debating whether or not this is a good deal. Also, I just called CR and got a free tivo and installation last month. But anyway, I have 4 tv's two tivos and HBO right now with TC +locals for 74.95 bucks a month before tax. If I add the TCP with locals, -20 bucks add the 3 additional receivers, im still looking at 85 plus tax which will be about 92 bucks. So essentially i would be getting starz, encore, showtime, and cinemax for another 12 bucks a month. The wife already thinks we pay too much, but she isnt complaining about having TIVO in the bedroom now is she?! I think it may be a good thing, and I can just cancel the service in the upstairs game room. I can always run locals from the antenna to it. FYI, I only keep the locals on the DTV so I can tivo them. For sports and such, I watch them live in HD.

    I got this discount back in October and it only showed up on the first bill. Three bills later I realized I was no longer getting the discount. I called last month and they said "we don't know what happened so we will add the discount back on". Sure enough again this month the discount didn't show up so I called back. They don't know what the problem is but they escalated it to accounting to fix.

    So watch your bill because it seems to go away no warning.

    it makes sense to read your bill every month anyway no matter what services that you have or don't have, you never know what they will add or delete from your bill monthly

    Speaking of getting through to a human at DTV Customer Service, what is the quickest way to end the maze of automated options and get it to ring through to an actual customer rep?

    I don't push any buttons, just keep holding. Seems to be easiest way.

    I called today--have been a premier subscriber for several years

    I commented on the price change and asked to cancel The Guide--we don't really read it anyway. While he processed that, I asked about the $20 credit. I made no statements regarding leaving. He said he could give me the credit, but it would extend my commitment for another year.
