So I do pay for Dish TV – it’s one of the few things I pay extra for in life along with makeup, nails and Internet. I do have the basic package with HBO. Well this weekend I noticed that I have one Encore channel and a bunch of Starz channels. Now lately they have been randomly doing that with movie channels as free promotions I’m guessing. They don’t advertise it and they disappear after a few weeks.
Well one of the Starz channels caught my eye on the TV Guide. It said Free Starz for a year! Yes kiddies a year. I think it was to celebrate their anniversary and how long they have been around or something. A few weeks back I was getting all the Encore channels for a free preview and to be honest I wish they would have given me that package instead of all the Starz ones with only one Encore channel. The Encore channels played better movies including a lot of stuff from the 80’s.
But hey, I can’t complain! Free movie channels for a year, you really can’t beat that. Clever little buggers at Dish. They know you’ll get good and used to those channels after a year and when they suddenly go away, people will want to purchase them back. Not everyone of course but I’m sure quite a few will.
