Showtime Is On DISH Network's Featured Channel List
** Please note. This article is about a promotion that ended 5/18/11. Now, instead of receiving Showtime free for 3 months, new qualifying subscribers can get 3 months of free service from HBO®, Cinemax®, Starz® and Showtime® (offer subject to change based on premium movie channel availability). Stay tuned for possible future promotions on free Showtime trial periods on DISH Network.
Here at InternetLion.com we usually publish articles that present some of the finer points of ordering DISH Network® service. For instance, we’ve published hundreds of articles comparing DISH Network’s prices with its competitors’. And we’ve also presented just about every step necessary to setting up DISH Network equipment, from installing a dish antenna to connecting DVRs.
But sometimes the most interesting story is simpler than a sneeze. And this is definitely the case with the news that Showtime’s on DISH Network’s freebees list. Now, qualified DISH Network customers can enjoy Showtime movies and Showtime TV shows on all 10 Showtime network channels free for three months, with 24-Mo. Agreement and AutoPay with Paperless Billing. And if that’s not enough to get your kettle whistling we don’t know what will.
Still, besides the fact that Showtime’s on DISH Network’s freebees list there is the matter of how prospective customers can take advantage of this and other DISH Network deals. And, while explaining how to get three free months of Showtime movies and Showtime TV shows isn’t directly tied to our headline, it’s so important to new subscribers we figured we’d spend the rest of this article explaining this DISH Network deal’s ins and outs.
How to Enjoy 10 Showtime Network Channels
The first requirement for enjoying three free months of Showtime movies and Showtime TV shows from DISH Network is that you must be a new customer. That is, existing customers may not take advantage of this premium offer.
Assuming you meet this requirement, then, the next thing you’ll need to do before you can enjoy three free months of all 10 Showtime network channels is you have to order one of the DISH Network channel packages featured here on InternetLion.com. (You'll also get three free months of HBO, Cinemax and Starz!) Here at InternetLion.com we’ve extensively explained the prices and services included with these packages in other articles, and we highly encourage you to check out as much of that information as possible before making a decision. But we would like to point out that DISH Network is currently offering new subscribers eight of these deals for less than $50 per month, making these packages more affordable than ever.
Now, after selecting the DISH Network package that best fits your budget and tastes, you will next have to sign a 24-month Agreement with DISH Network. Don’t worry about doing this because even when DISH Network raises its monthly fee during the second year of your subscription, the cost will only increase $10-25 per month and all pricing is locked in until 2013. Plus, the savings you’ll enjoy during your first year of service should defray the cost of your second year of service.
What’s more, for signing a 24-month Agreement you will receive plenty of high-value perks from DISH Network, including up to three free DISH Network HD receivers, free professional installation in up to six rooms, a four month waiver on DISH Network’s receiver service plan fees, a DISH Network dish antenna, and a complete waiver of your setup cost.
Finally, to get in on three free months of all 10 Showtime Network channels you’ll have to sign up for AutoPay with Paperless Billing. This will give DISH Network the right to withdraw your monthly subscription fee from your bank account automatically. But don’t worry about this. It really makes life far more convenient, seeing as how you won’t have to write out and mail a check every month, but instead can simply sit back and enjoy your DISH Network service. Better still, doing this will also net you free HD for life with some DISH Network packages, and this is in addition to your three free months of Showtime service – all with 24-Mo. Agreement and AutoPay with Paperless Billing.
