I turned on HBO by accident last night, and it was on. Along with all the other pay channels.

Is this something done buy mistake or is anyone else getting this?

This is no promo.

When they do that in between movies they say its a promo.

They are not saying that, also you get an email on the tv saying its free.

None of that is happening, everything is free. Not just HBO and showtime but also Boom is free and all the other pay channels.

Call Showtime-HBO-ec and ask if it's a promo or if you are getting it by mistake. I'm sure they'll make it right either way.

I feel certain that it's a trial promo, but I'm not going to call and ask as Don suggests, I'll just enjoy it while it's free.

Freedom isn't Free, it's paid for with the blood and dreams of those that have gone before us.
My imagination is the only limiting factor to my Fiero. Well, there is that money issue.

So does that mean you are getting it to?

Haven't you seen the comercial running all the time now--with Ben Stein saying
"Bueller-Bueller-Bueller'?
"Home sick? I doubt it. Most likely watching HBO and Showtime on Direct TV, which they just happen to be offering free this month."

If you feel guilty about it just send them some extra cash with your payment.
