    Rum Diary On Demand Offer, how does it work?

    I received an email from DirecTV saying, "get $4.99 back on your next movie! Order by 2/22" and the fine print says, "Bill credit. Mail in redemption required." When I click on the ad it takes me to a page where i can order Rum Diary on Demand. I don't see where I can download any coupon...

    Yet another switching from E* to D* customer

    This is great info, thank you for the help. I see that Dish has come to an agreement with FSN for the Twins games but too little too late for me. Tomorrow they will have another dispute with a different network.

    Tonights Twins / Yankees Game Blocked??

    I'm done. Scheduled a Directv install for tomorrow afternoon. There were actually a lot of things I liked about Dish but in the end I just got tired of the programming disputes. I know Directv has had disputes too but with Dish I'm now afraid of what channels or programs I'll lose tomorrow...

    So if i choose to get all DVR's and I therefore do NOT need to do the whole house DVR solution then I can diplex an OTA feed in one line or would I need two separate coax lines going go each receiver? Where do I get an AM21? Thanks

    Any chance more space added for RSN's on Wednesday??

    That's my plan. And I'm sending the tweet to the broadcaster (FSNorth in my case) and the team (MN Twins in my case). All three parties monitor their messages on twitter with regularity so I'm hoping it might create some waves.

    Any chance more space added for RSN's on Wednesday??

    To me, it's no longer an issue of "if you want HD sports, go to DirecTv." To me, the issue is it's 2011 and all major league baseball games produced in HD should be broadcast in HD on Dish. It's not like this is some fringe sporting event, it's Major League Baseball. This problem was...

    Any chance more space added for RSN's on Wednesday??
