Okay, I've been on Dish's website and this site for the last half hour trying to figure this thing out, but so far I'm still stumped.

So here's my programming, and nothing has changed in quite a while:

America's Top 200 59.99
HD/SD (2TV) DVR Receiver 17.00
DVR Service 6.00
HD 200 Free ($10/Mo) 0.00
Starz - 12 Mo 0.00
Brazilian: TV Globo 19.99
....................
Total$102.98​


But a few minutes ago I was going through my guide, and noticed that some of the channels on my guide are showing up in green, indicating that I am no longer subscribed to them. The list of channels I've noticed so far are:

261 MAVTV
368 CI
371 CTRC
373 LOGO
378 INDIE
379 RETRO
385 MGM
386 SMC
389 SUND

Now these aren't channels I watch all the time, but I do watch some of them, sometimes. And I don't like losing channels without understanding why.

So has the Top 200 package changed? If they removed these channels, have they included some new ones?

If somebody could help me figure this out, I'd really appreciate it!

Aren't those the Blockbuster/Dish Platinum channels? Maybe you had the promo of other Absolute customers and kept it free for a year?

Ah, that seems to ring a bell. Yes, I was an Absolute customer that held out until the bitter end. I'll have to check the price, but I imagine it's probably not worth paying extra for.

The channels you listed are included in Blockbuster @Home™. Here is a link to some information on Blockbuster @Home™ DISH - Entertainment - BLOCKBUSTER. If you send me a PM with your phone or account number I can see what has changed on your account. Thanks!

The Platinum HD package (now BlockBuster @HOME) was given for free to this customer for DISH Networks 30's Birthday gift for a year.

When my Absolute HD ended last February, I was given Platinum free for a year. I also got Starz free for a year as my 30th Anniv gift. Boy, did things change today...no more Starz or Platinum, and my bill is fully double what it was under Absolute for less channels. Thankfully, last week I negotiated Dish giving me free Blockbuster for a year...

If you already had Starz then you were given Platinum as your gift. (there was one other one they gave as well but I can't remember what that was... I think maybe 6 PPV movies?)

Yes, for those of us with the 'Everything' and Platinum packages already being billed, we got 6 PPV movies, none of which I used.....

Yup February 1st is expired...

If your still getting Starz for free do not worry they have not shut off the promo yet, but will be turning it off shortly.

For some reason I'm still getting all the platinum channels. I went online yesterday to pay my bill and it still shows platinum 12 Mo on my account. I notice I'm getting a banner at the bottom of the screen when I go to the starz channels to call them for a programming offer. When I called I was told that I couldnt get the offer becuase I was already subscribed to starz.
