Well, I only subscribe to the Starz package, but tonight I noticed I am getting Cinemax West HD and also the standard definition version of The Movie Channel. Is this just me or is it happening to everyone. Should I be concerned about being charged for these channels? By the way I am not getting any of the other Cinemax or Showtime channels just those two.

That's probably a problem in their end. Some people have reported the same with other premium channels. Enjoy them while it last.

Well now that they know, you can say goodbye. I had everything up until last week when we were away on vacation. Had opted for only the free Showtime plus pack, but continued to get all of them. Thought that maybe I was being rewarded for being a charter member and not making any changes such as leasing. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted. Was so tempted to make a post about this, but didn't want to blow the whistle on myself.

Got a letter from V* today. Seems that they were giving extra time for charter members to view the VA VA package for free. "To give us more time to decide which package we wanted to go with". Of course the preferred course according to them was to go with the $80 VA VA VOOM package. Sorry, but I had made my decison weeks ago to keep the Showtime package as my freebie. Can only watch so many movies.
